Chocolate at heart.

There are few things I enjoy more than chocolate. If you’ve looked around on this site before, you’ll know that fact through and through. Chocolate for breakfast, chocolate for a little snack, and when I’m pregnant, a little chocolate cake for dinner… (Who am I kidding, I don’t need to be pregnant to eat cake for dinner!)

Yes, my chocolate-love runs deep. Specifically my love of dark chocolate. The darker, the better.

Dark Chocolate Peppermint Truffles

Dark chocolate peppermint truffles.

These dark chocolate peppermint truffles speak to me. They say wonderful things about dark chocolate, peppermint (another one of my favorites), and hiding in a closet so I don’t have to share…
Not that I’d ever do that! I’m a good mommy, and these candies don’t have any refined sugar in them, so if I do happen to share, I know my kids aren’t filling up on junk. 
Besides being allergy-friendly and pretty healthy for a candy, these little balls of deliciousness are super easy to make. Just a few ingredients, a few minutes in the freezer, and you’re on your way to enjoying something that would cost way too much money if you weren’t making it yourself… 
And the results of your little bit of effort are well worth it. You’ll probably be hiding in the closet eating them, too. ;) 

Healthy candies.

Are you a fellow homemade candy lover? Here are a few more of my favorite treats. They’re all delicious, and surprisingly healthy! Minus that walnut roca… still working on that!
