With Valentine’s Day approaching quickly so do the chocolate temptations and candy confections. Here are a few ideas to satisfy your sweet tooth and treat yourself without going into sugar overload or opening a can of worms… I mean, another heart-shaped box of unhealthy morsels.

Chocolate, especially in the dark form does contain antioxidants. Now, before you go grabbing a chocolate bar for dinner, we can’t use its nutritional properties as an excuse to devour large quantities, moderation is the name of the game, right?

Have fun with these and Happy Valentine’s Day!
