Health meets happiness: sour cherry chocolate bark

Hello friends!

It has been a week of celebrations in our house, with both Mother’s Day and my birthday falling within a few days of each other. Which means there was a large consumption of delicious treats!

Now I have a confession for you…if you hadn’t already worked it out, I have an insatiable sweet tooth and it’s something that I cannot seem to curb no matter how hard I try! Resisting the sweet cravings just makes me irritable and crabby, which is not a pretty sight.

So instead of fighting it, I’ve started looking for healthy ways to satisfy it. And this latest creation absolutely takes the cake for the most taste and the least guilt…it is the perfect combination of dark chocolatey richness and velvety texture, offset by the sour tang of sour cherries. And do you want to know the best part? This recipe actually contains an entire serving of vegetables! So in my mind this means the more of it you eat the better…right?!

IMG_2814I had actually been playing around with the idea of creating a ‘healthy chocolate’ recipe for a while. I absolutely love the raw Pana chocolate bars, but when you go through chocolate as quickly as I do, it isn’t very practical to spend eight dollars on a single bar…

But I kept putting it off, as I thought it would take too long to get it right, and that I would end up spending a ton on ingredients that I never ended up using again. Now I wish I’d got to it sooner!!

This recipe took only one attempt to create, and not only was it quick to make (about 10 minutes preparation time and 20 minutes to set) but it also only uses 7 ingredients, all of which I had previously bought to use for other recipes!

So here it is…the Sour Cherry Chocolate Bark recipe:
