Dark chocolate and sea salt are definitely two of my favorite foods. To be honest if I had to choose my last meal it would definitely be some combination of the two, plus peanut butter. Anyway, I knew I needed a healthy and delicious way to combine these two. Something that I could eat for dessert and for a snack. I was originally inspired to make these by the dark chocolate sea salt Rx Bar, which are delicious, but not always cost friendly. So i decided to make my own delicious creation!
