healthy homemade chocolate 7

I am excited to say that my toddler and I will be enjoying Chocolate this Easter!  A strange comment coming from a health food blogger, but not when it’s healthy homemade chocolate.

Chocolate in it’s most common form is made with dairy milk and a heap of unnecessary sugar.  Sure, it tastes amazing, but I promise you that my healthy homemade chocolate tastes just as creamy and delicious, without the refined sugar and dairy.  And that is a big call!

A perfect sweet treat for the whole family, even those who are dairy free, gluten free, or refined sugar free.  They are also vegan, vegetarian, and kinda just awesome.
