I am a chocolate-a-holic. Really, if there was one food that I could eat ALL the time and not gain any weight from, it would be chocolate. So, every healthier sweet treat I make, I try to incorporate chocolate in it. I recently ran across this recipe on Pinterest and I had to try it! I did tweak it a bit but it originated from Six Sisters’ Stuff. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
