Chocolate Drops

My family love chocolate, when I say love I mean it, they will eat chocolate multiple times a day if I let them. I don’t mind them eating chocolate but like to make the chocolate as healthy as possible.

Slightly better for you

If you are looking for a sweet treat that doesn’t leave you feeling guilty, this could be the treat for you. The combination of chocolate, seeds and berries is perfect. You can make these up and keep them in the fridge (if they last that long), so you have a treat on hand when you need one.
