Round two of our line up of homemade heart-healthy chocolates for you! It’s such a sweet deal that these chocolates make 24 so you can easily divide up for your sweeties. The secret to these chocolates is the addition of a superfood called Goji berries. Goji berries can be found typically in the health market aisle or bulk produce. It’s a pricey little berry so I would buy bulk style. For this recipe, you will keep it under $2, and it’s worth it if you buy the big bag (big price) because these babies are good for you. Check it out here. Dried goji berries taste like the love child of a cranberry and cherry. Sweet and chewy in texture. The perfect pair for the pistachio another heart-pumping protein. Belgium chocolate morsels are also equally easy to find in the health aisle. If you can’t find it, you can always stick with dark chocolate. All our chocolates are easy and straightforward to make, try this Matcha Made in Heaven Truffles too!Print
