If you are looking to satisfy a sweet tooth, here are some healthy chocolates you can share with your Valentine as well as indulge in all year long!
Almonds and chocolate are a marriage made in heaven. But most chocolate covered almonds are, well, dominated by the chocolate so when I came across Skinny Dipped Almonds, I knew that I found an almond that is as healthy as it is indulgent. With rock star nutritionals in each serving-5 g fiber, 6 g sugar, 7 g plant-based protein, this is a healthy chocolate that is good for your heart and your tastebuds.
