Sometimes you just need a little bit of dessert to complete the day. And the sooner it can be ready, the better. Last night I went a step further and prepared a “not-so-guilty-pleasure” dessert which I found in Women’s Health Magazine’s list of healthy dessert recipes. Apparently these only contain 104 calories per turtle (additional nutritional information found on the link provided). I made 6 unintentionally, so I guess mine are even slimmer!
Time zero to craving-satisfaction occurred in five minutes. I think we can all handle that. Unfortunately I was unable to find the dried blueberries and was forced to use blueberry flavored Craisins. Probably not as nutritious, but still most definitely delicious!
7 Tbsp (2.5 oz) Ghirardelli 60% cocoa bittersweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup dried wild blueberries
1/4 sliced almonds
- Microwave chocolate in a glass bowl for 60 seconds and stir until completely melted. Microvace for an additional 10 seconds if necessary.
- Stir in blueberries and nuts, then drop 5 rounded tablespoons onto parchment paper, or wax paper.
- Cool in refrigerator for 2 to 4 minutes or until firm.
