Raise your hand if you're a chocolate lover! Dark or milk chocolate, whatever it is, you could eat a bundle of it. Two hands up - that's me!
Chocolate is my go-to sweet indulgence! And I'm a little embarrassed to say that in the past, I'd stash it around the kitchen or my closet, hidden away from Scott and the littles, to eat the chocolate treats myself if I caved in to buying it. Like Dove Chocolates or Ghirardelli squares. Yum!!
Since I've started working on healthier habits tho, I still love it loads but I aim to have healthier options, many of which I make myself, like these better-for-you remakes on some ol' favorites!
Check them out as you'll be surprised how delish they are while saving you from so much processed sugar and junk.
And have to share my other go-to chocolate favorite these days!! It's totally one that actually helps to curb my sweet tooth so I honestly eat less of the chocolate goodies than ever before (even the ones I make) because my cravings are just way way down. A daily superfoods shake is what does it for me.
Super easy to mix up with water and super tasty. It does the trick to save me from so much sugar like I've binged on in the past and the protein is a great addition! Would be glad to share more about it if you're looking to curb a big sweet tooth like I have!
So here are my favorite chocolate recipes at the moment! They are popular with little ones too so that's a big big bonus!
Dark Chocolate Caramel Cups
Super easy to make and totally delicious remake of traditional peanut butter cups. My biggest challenge with making these is finding a flat place in my freezer but the little work to move things is totally worth it! You can make these with a nut butter if you prefer it over caramel! Get the recipe here.
Double Chocolate Cookie Dough Balls
A kid favorite! And another super simple recipe that will give you a little protein power along with your chocolate boost. Come on and try to guess what the protein is! Get the recipe here.
Double Chocolate Muffins
This recipe from Clean Food Crush will have you questioning whether one of the main ingredients is really in the muffin! Love this healthy remake of chocolate muffins. Get the recipe here.
Dark Chocolate Almond Blueberry Bark
There's just something about adding fruit and nuts to your chocolate treats that make them feel better for you, right? Check out this better-for-you chocolate bark recipe that's not only super simple to make but delicious too! Get the recipe here.
Hope you enjoy all these chocolate goodies as much as I do!!
