The Diet Sweet Treats/ Party Food

I love alternatives to bad food, there is always a way around that bad craving you just need to think outside the box! This one is one of my all time faves. 

What you need:
Dark Choc over 70% cocoa (this is the key, have to be over 70%)
Fresh Fruit 

1. Get your dark choc (any brand) just make sure its over 70%, this is super healthy but you wont eat as much as you would with milk choc so good times all round!

2. Chop up your fruit, any type of fruit that you have lying around!

3. Melt the choc

4. Cover each item of fruit in the lovely choc, I find using a fork works best and makes moving them onto the parchment super easy 

5. Place your fruit on the parchment, move to the freezer 

6. After about 15 min take them out and serve or place in the fridge and  you will have a lovely tasty treat that is super healthy and won't make you or your party guest feel guilty. 

NOTE: If you keep the chocolate covered fruit in the freezer for more than 30 min make sure to let them thaw out slightly before eating.

Tip: With your left over choc dip in some fruit for a quick tasty treat. 

I think this is a great snack to get children involved with, it takes minimal effort and its a great way to get them eating their five a day! I think it would be a super fun activity to do for any kids party. 

I really enjoy having these around on hot days and when I'm doing some of my dreaded college work!

What do you think of this diet friendly treat? 

Sarah's Supper Yummy Double Choc Brownies

Before I start, I had already started making the brownies before I though of doing this for the blog. 

To make these supper duper yummy brownies you will need:
100g Dark Chocolate (around 70% coco)
120g Milk Chocolate (cooking chocolate  is fine but a bar of dairy milk would go down a treat!)
200g unsalted butter
360 g Caster Sugar 
4 Large Eggs 
65 g Plain Flour
1 tbsp Baking Powder 


I whent with a few cranberries, walnuts and almond flakes (between you and me they where what I had in the kitchen) 
Pre Heat oven to about 180oC/ 350oF or Gas 4

Melt the Chocolate and butter like I have done here (in a Pyrex bowel in a saucepan containing bolling water.) Tip: brake down the butter and have it out an hour or two before you start to soften it up. you can also turn the hob on speed it up. 

In a separate bowl add in your sugar, sift in the coco power, flower and add the baking powder. 
mix it all together 

Take your 4 eggs and mix them.

When the butter and chocolate has melted add in your extras (excuse my dinner)

Pour your melted chocolate into the bigger bowl containing your sugar, flour, coco etc and mix.

Once that is mixed add in your beaten eggs. Mix till it's smooth 

Pour the mix onto your baking tray and pop into the over for about 23 - 25 min depending on your oven. 
Make sure to check on it when it's in the oven. Do the aul fork test,you will want it too look like this:
you also want them to be slightly springy on the outside, this is how you will know that they are cooked perfectly. 

Why not jazz them up with some lovely vanilla ice cream. 
For a slightly healthy option frozen yogurt
