While chocolates and sweets may make us feel good in the short-term, in the long-term they do nothing for our health of our bodies. When I’m after something decadent, chocolatey and sweet, this is my go-to recipe! Not only does it taste AMAZING but it’s also highly nutritious and will flood your body with all the good things it needs.
