Goji Almond Pretzel Bites

We all need a little chocolate from time to time, add those powerful Goji berries and you have the perfect combo. Goji berries have a ton of nutritional benefits and have been used as a super berry for thousands of years. They have tons of powerful antioxidants which can boost the immune system and lower cholesterol. Not only that but they are packed with Vitamin A. What a delicious way to get so many benefits!

1 Cup Chocolate Chips (You choose your favorite! Dark chocolate has the most antioxidants) 
1/2 Cup Dried Goji Berries
1/2 Cup Almonds, Chopped
1/2 Cup Glutino GF Pretzels, Broken into Pieces
1 TBSP Agave Nectar
Mini muffin tins/candy tins

In a small saucepan (over low to medium heat) melt the chocolate chips. It's better to do this slowly so the chocolate doesn't burn. When the chocolate is almost melted, add the agave nectar. *You can always skip the agave nectar but I used bittersweet chocolate originally so I wanted to add a little sweetness. 

In the mini muffin tins, pour 1/2 inch melted chocolate into tins.
Add the goji berries, broken pretzels, and almonds on top.
Let the candies set in the fridge until the chocolate is hardened. 
(They taste a little better at room temperature but store them in the fridge)
That's it! Too easy for so much flavor!
Enjoy! Xo
