Healthy Chocolate Dessert Recipes

One of the great things about food blogging is that I peruse recipes ALL THE TIME! I learn things. I take notes (or at least pin it to my Pinterest boards.)

And, I experiment…on my very receptive family.

I’m not a nutritionist and I don’t play one on TV either. But, these recipes are a little healthier, don’t sacrifice taste, will wow the crowd and will satisfy even the fiercest sweet tooth!

Tip #1 Fruit and Chocolate

Tip #5 Cut Down on Sugar

I often use a half sugar/half pure Stevia blend to sweeten things. If a recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar, I end up using 1/2 cup of the blend Some of my favorite bloggers have recipes sweetened entirely with dates or raw honey or stevia sweeteners.
