Healthy chocolate bites?
Yes you heard right, chocolate can actually be really healthy. Today I’m sharing with you these easy to make ‘healthy homemade chocolate bites’.
I love chocolate. I am definitely a self-confessed chocoholic and in the past you’d often find me working my way through an entire galaxy or dairy milk bar in one sitting.
If you’re trying to turn over a healthier lifestyle like me, then things like chocolate can be really hard to leave behind.
Lately I’ve completely overhauled my cupboards of all things bad and have started only eating healthy yet delicious, nutritious snacks (you can get more inspiration from my post ‘10 Easy Healthy Snacks‘). Chocolate however, is one thing I just couldn’t part with.
I started to limit myself to one cube of dark chocolate a day, then came up with the delicious idea to create my own superfood style, healthy homemade chocolate bites.
Healthy Homemade Chocolate Bites
- Dark chocolate
- Dried fruits and nuts
Melt the bar of dark chocolate in a pan over a low heat. When the chocolate is melted, line a small tray with some parchment paper. Spoon out the chocolate carefully making little button shapes. Top with small handfuls of dried fruits and nuts. Put the tray in the freezer for a couple of hours. When frozen, remove from the parchment paper and put in a freezable bag or tupperware box.
Dark chocolate is really good for you in moderation. It is one of the best sources of antioxidants and can not only improve healthy but can lower the risk of heart disease. Sprinkled with seeds and dried fruits, these bites are super indulgent, without the guilt.
