When you can have a treat that actually does your body good, why would you ever choose store-bought, sugar-laden, disease-causing chocolate??
I don’t even have to tell you how bad sugar is. It’s pretty much the enemy. Just read about it here.
To make this chocolate treat I used dark chocolate and goji berries. That’s it! Have you ever had goji berries? If not, then you MUST try some. Not only are they really good but they are incredibly good for you.
Here are a list of health promoting benefits attributed to the goji berry:
are a powerful antioxidant
maintain a healthy blood pressure
support healthy liver function
treat menopausal symptoms
support kidney function
strengthen muscles and bones
improve memory and recall ability
improve quality of sleep
improve disease resistance
And dark chocolate is good for you too. Just make sure it is DARK chocolate, at least 72% or higher. Dark chocolate has many of the same benefits as the goji berries including being rich in vital vitamins and minerals. It can also increase blood flow to your heart and brain. Who doesn’t want that?!
So go ahead, have a treat!
A candy mold (I used a heart shaped mold for the ones pictured, but any shape you want will do)
A bar of dark chocolate
Handful of goji berries
- Place a few pieces of goji berries in each mold. Melt chocolate in a double boiler.
- Once chocolate is melted, carefully spoon the chocolate into each mold covering the goji berries.
- Place in fridge for 30 minutes to set.
