Easy as one-two-three. Just grab these three ingredients to make this fresh vegan treat and cure your chocolate craving.

Dark chocolate contains flavonoids that come from extracts of the cocoa bean. Choosing dark chocolate with a high percentage of cocoa gives your family more of these healthy antioxidants.

Some studies report small portions of dark chocolate can maintain heart health and the health of blood vessels.

¼ cup finely chopped raw walnuts

  1. Melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave.
