With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, thoughts turn to love…and sweet dessert recipes…at least my thoughts do! I love to make sweet treats in the kitchen but I also like to keep them on the healthy side. This Chocolate Bark with Tart Cherries and Almonds fits both requirements perfectly.

We know that dark chocolate is a delicious way to take in antioxidants. But did you know that tart cherries are packed with one of the most potent classes of flavonoids called anthocyanins? These are what give tart cherries their extraordinary anti-inflammatory properties known to ease pain, muscle soreness, and other conditions associated with inflammation.

This chocolate bark is quick and easy to make and it pairs well with a romantic glass of red wine.  It’s sweet, salty, crunchy, chewy and creamy all in one decadent bite. I hope you enjoy it!
