13.4.16
When browsing the internet the other day for healthy sweet treats, I was inspired to try out my own version of chocolate bars. This is the ultimate chocolate lover's snack. So easy to make and my oh my so good! And the best part? They are made from wholesome ingredients, so get ready to snack on these guilt-free.


Although I don't have a huge sweet tooth, I know its hard to cut out sugar without substituting it for healthy sweet snacks. That's why I enjoy these chocolate bars so much, they're packed with healthy ingredients but they also satisfy those sugar cravings.
