Chocolate Bark Treats for the health-conscious snack time

As somebody who likes eating healthy snacks, you often choose the dark chocolates for your treats. These chocolates are often thin squares of goodness with reduced sugar and lots of flavour. However, you have friends coming over and you want to treat your health-conscious friends with something great. Not do these Chocolate Bark Treats have low calories, but they are a great way to get creative.

Chocolate, especially darker variations, have a good amount of antioxidants. These antioxidants are great at helping your body get rid of those pesky free radicals that can negatively impact the health of every cell in your body. But, the upside is that chocolate tastes amazing too. These Chocolate Bark Treats are super thin crackly pieces of goodness. You can decorate them for themed parties, add some more nuts or dried fruits to up the goodness. Each batch can serve 10 and each serving is only 175 calories, making it the perfect health snack.

Chocolate is the world’s best dessert flavour and eating healthy doesn’t need to exclude it. Try our healthy Chocolate Bark Treats, the perfect daily snack you can make on food prep day.
