Almond and Cranberry Turtles

17 Sep

For a friends birthday I wanted to come up with a healthier option for dessert. She has been working out hard and eating healthier. I did not want to sabotage her efforts.  If you can find un-sweetened cranberries these would be even healthier.  This dessert is super easy and quick.

  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of low-sugar or sugar free cranberries
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds

Line a small cookie sheet with parchment paper.Place the chocolate chips in a small sauce pan. Cook over medium high heat, stirring constantly, until chips are melted. Remove from heat. Stir in the cranberries and almonds. Drop rounded tablespoons onto parchment paper. Cool in refrigerator for an hour or until firm.
