There is no Easter without chocolate! Fact!

Growing up Easter Sunday was that one day of the year when you’d get more chocolate that you could ever handle; eat so much the stuff and feel so sick that you would not be able to face another drop of it for a whole year until it was time for the easter bunny to visit once more and do it all over again!

While I will not justify going on a chocolate binge, I am not willing to give up the tradition of having chocolate at Easter. This year I decided to go a little healthier and boost my chocolate with vitamins, antioxidants and fibre! Easy and delicious it also makes a lovely thoughtful handmade present!

Ingredients:

  • Chocolate (1 bar is enough for 1 box of strawberries and a few blueberries)
  • Berries (strawberry and blueberries are my favorites)

Method:

1 - I like to make things as easy as I can so I used the microwave, but you can always use the hob and melt it in 'bain marie' . It took 3 minutes to melt a bar of dark chocolate (give it a stir every minute). And 2 minutes for the milk chocolate. Check constantly though as it is easy to burn chocolate if you leave it too long.

2- Line a tray with foil or clean film.

3- Dip berries in chocolate and place on tray

4 -Once most of the chocolate is gone and there is not enough to dip, stir in some blueberries.

5- Place tray in the fridge to set for 5 minutes before serving.

Happy Healthy Easter Everyone!
