I like to use sunflower seeds quite a bit into my cooking. I like their subtle flavor and they come with the added benefit of being healthy. I added the ground seeds to Nutella and it was pleasantly delicious, with a nice crunch from the seeds. These chocolates can be easily put together and made ahead of time, makes for a great sweet treat or gift.
