Toothsome Tuesday

I've promised two people this post so far so I'd better hop to it. It's a recipe I concocted all by myself after reading an article on the benefits of dark chocolate, an article on organic coconut and one on the benefits of nuts. Ha! I read three articles on eating healthy and come up with a desert, a pattern I'm beginning to notice in myself after these forty some years, that may have contributed to my never making the cover of Cosmopolitan.

Healthy Little Clusters (wink, wink)

1 bag of Dove dark chocolate bars.

Unwrap and melt in microwave safe dish, 2-5 minutes, stir after each minute, It just barely needs to be melted.

Mix in:

1 cup shaved, organic coconut
2 cups nuts (your favorite nut or nuts, whole or slivered, or crushed how ever you like them)
2 Tablespoons flax seed (optional)

Drop by tablespoonfuls on to waxed paper. Cool till set. Enjoy guilt free unless you happen to eat the entire batch in one sitting...not that I've ever done that or anything. Store in covered container.

You don't even know how excited I am about this! I am heading to the store TODAY! Since they are so healthy ;0), I can eat them after my workout, RIGHT?

Yum! --although I have a feeling I could consume these to such a level as to make them unhealthy...

Blessings!
