Easy & Healthy Chocolate Treats

February 12, 2019

One of my favorite things to share is how to still have your favorite foods and treats by "upgrading" your ingredients! With a few ingredient swaps, we can still have sweet treats that are delicious and stay on our healthy eating plan! It's the best of both worlds, right?!

 

Using dark chocolate (70% or higher) with stevia to sweeten it plus raw nuts and a garnish of unsweetened coconut makes for a easy healthy treat! 

 

This recipe is one of my family's favorites all year round, and I hope you love it too! 

 

 

 

Totally Tasty Turtles

Makes 2 ½ dozen

 

  • ¾ cup (4.4 ounces) 70% or higher dark chocolate, chopped

  • 150 pecan halves

  • Unsweetened shredded coconut, optional

 

Directions:

1)      Cover a large sturdy cutting board with wax paper.

2)      Assemble the pecans on wax paper in clusters of five. Four on bottom and one on top.

3)      In a double boiler, melt the chocolate.

4)      Drop about one teaspoon full of melted chocolate over each pecan cluster. Make sure you drizzle over each pecan to glue them together as a cluster. Sprinkle with coconut (if desired).

5)      Move the board of clusters to a cool place to harden. Once the chocolate cools and hardens, they can be placed on a dish and served. These refrigerate well up to 2 weeks.

 

Note: Once you are used to dark chocolate, these don’t need any sweetener. But, if you do need these sweeter, add 8 drops liquid stevia to the melted chocolate or more to taste.
