  • 4 heaping cups fresh kale, washed in cold water and dried well with paper towels
  • 2 ounces dark chocolate or 4 tbsp dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp sea or kosher salt
  • 1 tsp coconut, brown or cane sugar, divided
  • 1 tsp olive or avocado oil


  1. 1.Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place non-stick aluminum foil, or regular foil on a cookie sheet and spray with coconut cooking spray. Set aside.

    2.After you wash and dry the kale, break up or cut up into bite size pieces.

    3.Drizzle oil over the kale and then sprinkle the salt.

    4.Bake for about 15 minutes and rotate the pan after about 10 minutes.

    5.Check to see if the kale is crispy after the cooking time. You may want to put back in the oven for 5 minutes more.

    6.Take out of the oven. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp sugar over the kale and let cool.

    7.When the kale is almost cooled. Place chocolate in microwave for about 20 seconds. Take out and stir, place back in for about 20 seconds. Do this until chocolate is almost melted.  Stir until nice and smooth and shiny.

    8.With the tip of a spoon, drizzle the chocolate over the kale. Use a rubber spatula to get all the chocolate. Now sprinkle the last 1/2 tsp of  sugar over the whole batch of chocolate covered kale.

    9.Place in fridge for only 3 to 5 minutes. No longer. Take out and let sit on the counter for about 10 minutes and dig in! Enjoy!
