Ginger & Almond Chocolates

Ginger & Almond Chocolates



Ginger and almond chocolates – sweet with a little spice. This is one of my favorite ways to “spice up” my original chocolate recipe. I am obsessed with the combination of ginger, almond & chocolate – because it’s just AMAZING.

These scrumptious raw chocolate bites (with a little twist) are the perfect guilt-free indulgence for a decadent healthy treat or a yummy snack. A box of these make a great gift & they’re great to take along to a party to share.

This recipe is raw, unprocessed, refined sugar-free, dairy free, soy-free and totally healthy. I hope you love it as much as I do… I can’t get enough! xo
