With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we teamed up with the talented Hazel & Cacao to create a romantic, healthy and delicious V-Day treat. Unlike most valentines chocolates, these little hearts are refined sugar free and loaded with plant based protein and healthy fats. These tantalising chocolate bites are the ideal healthy treat to make for your loved one or to treat yourself – and not just at Valentine’s Day but any time of the year. Please note: You will need some little heart molds (or any small raspberry sized shape would work).
