Whip up a batch of these super easy, healthy and delicious chocolate dipped strawberries coated in a crunchy layer of walnuts. It will bring a whole new meaning to “healthy indulgence!”

So I mentioned the other day that I’ve been on a berry and chocolate kick lately…and yeah, here I am again with…you guessed it. Chocolate and berries. But this time, we are dipping the berries into the melted dark chocolate and sprinkling them with chopped walnuts.

L-O-V-E.

Super easy….super delicious…and a super healthy treat!

Now you’re probably thinking “that does not look healthy AT ALL.” But it actually is. The strawberries provide those amazing antioxidants and fibre; the dark chocolate has the flavanols which can help to manage blood pressure; and the walnuts offer up those heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids. See? Totally healthy. Totally justifiable. Just don’t eat the whole tray of them. It’s about portion control peeps.

I’ve chatted with you before about how I love no-brainer recipes. Actually, I wouldn’t even really consider this to be a recipe. Really this whole production only involves purchasing three ingredients and assembling them to make an amazing drool-worthy treat.

Enjoy & have a Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
