Spiced Chocolate Covered Fruit

Chocolate Covered Fruit

I admit it. I have been MIA! Life got a little crazy buying and moving into a new house, but I am back! We are iced in today, so my kids and I made this Spiced Chocolate Covered Fruit recipe. It’s so easy and only 3 ingredients! Dark chocolate is rich in flavonoids, which have heart-protecting properties and are rich in antioxidants. ┬áThe protective factors are only seen in dark chocolate that contained at least 60 percent (preferably 70 percent or more) cocoa. There’s nothing better than a healthy snack with only 3 ingredients!
