Chocolate? Always!

Here’s a confession: I’m a chocoholic. If you’ve been around me for at least 5 seconds, you’ll quickly discover that I have HUGE love for chocolate! Whether it’s for warm fudgy brownies, chocolate chip pancakes, or the classic chocolate chunk cookies, COUNT ME IN.

Now that I think about it, I must take after my mom, because her idea of dessert is a couple squares of chocolate after dinner. So naturally, I’ve developed quite the preference for chocolate as well 🙂

You can try to convince me otherwise, but I like to think that a healthy amount of chocolate is, well, healthy! This is especially true for dark chocolate. Not only is it a great source of antioxidants, dark chocolate is much healthier than milk or white chocolate, plus it’s so much richer and more decadent!

In this recipe, I’ll show you how to make my go-to dark chocolate no-bake cookies that always hits the spot! When my chocolate cravings hit and I feel like indulging in something healthier, this is what I’ll make! Ready for the recipe?
