It’s that time of year again where chocolate is passed around and you may crave for something sweet. You may have a hard-to-impress partner who is on a highly-restrictive-everything-free diet, or you just want better alternatives to dairy and refined sugar chocolate. Nevertheless, if you want to impress your date in under 15 minutes, use this fool-proof, Paleo-friendly recipe. You can add just about anything to nuts and chocolate and it will still be divine.
