CHOCOLATE DOESN’T ASK SILLY QUESTIONS. CHOCOLATE UNDERSTANDS
Back at your desk and craving that rocky road from the café downstairs? We feel you. Instead of giving in to that craving, why don’t you have a look at some of these chocolate alternatives that you can snack on at your desk that won’t make you feel guilty for breaking the healthy start to the new year!
This snack isn’t completely anti-chocolate, but it’s just as healthy! Dark chocolate and strawberries are the perfect combo, and there will be no guilt to feel after your lunch! Pack some in a container and snack away while you work, others will be jealous, especially if you bring a chocolate dipping pot, cocktail sticks and your own fruit for a mini chocolate fondue.

You can have this treat frozen, too! All you have to do is dip your banana in melted dark chocolate, add some nuts and chop up, put it in a box, bring a fork and delight in your fruity, flavoursome snack. On the weekend, pop it in the freezer and have a cold alternative to ice cream…perfect!
3. Trail Mix With Dark Chocolate
