Ann,  So happy you like it.. When I used to take buyers out I would tell them that everything was better with chocolate and I had some in my survival kit.. this healthy version would be even better!  Hope you enjoy it!

Those purple feathers around the chocolate nuts make a perfect dish for Sunday's Super Bowl.

Sounds wonderful!  I wouldn't even need the sweetener.  I prefer my chocolate very dark with very little sugar.  I am going to whip some up today!

Ms. Margaret, I was thinking of you and your Ravens when I did that!  Posted a purple cake Super Bowl picture on Google+ you will like.. I will tag you so you can find it!  Going to be cheering for you so be ready for some texts.... AFTER you selll your listing!  I know that something good is going to happen my friend! If you use the Cacoa 85% and raw nuts... it's a good healthy treat!  Go Ravens!

Carra:  I do something similar but use dried cherries from time to time.  Yummy and so easy to do.

@Valerie,  What a great idea.. how about dried blueberries.... You have me thinking!  Just using the Cacoa bars makes sense!

John ~  Good for you... we have been working on clean eating too!  It should be easy for you to do.. and I KNOW that Debbie will like it if she is a dark chocolate girl!  It has a different taste as there is little sugar... Good luck and let us know how it works!
