Sweet strawberry jam stirred with chia seeds is tucked inside a snappy dark chocolate shell that is sprinkled with sea salt to make it all pop.

With just six ingredients, these little cups of chocolaty, jammy heaven can be chilling in your refrigerator. I felt a little fancy, so I ended up making homemade dark chocolate from cacao butter, cacao powder, and pure maple syrup, but you can simplify the recipe by melting down store-bought dark chocolate if you prefer. The center is a simple strawberry chia jam that’s made by blending fresh strawberries with pure maple syrup. Then, a hefty dash of chia seeds is stirred in. The jam takes about 4 hours to set in the refrigerator. It’s a little painful to wait that long for these bite-worthy sweets, but I promise they’re worth it.
The final but optional touch is a sprinkling of sea salt. It *pops* the richness of the chocolate and the sweetness of the jam. I hope you love these long-forgotten treats as much as I do.
