7 Lower Guilt Dark Chocolate Desserts for Summer!

Dark chocolate isn’t diet food, but it is richer in flavor and lower in fat than milk chocolate. While desserts made with it are definitely not calorie free, they can be lower in calories than a milk chocolate version. To get my chocolate fix I often turn to dark chocolate desserts. I love the flavor. They are usually so rich I can only handle a couple of bites which means I eat less and still get all the chocolate flavor I need. With summer upon us this is a great time to think about these dark chocolate desserts. We all want to look good in our sundresses! The next time you need that chocolate fix but don’t want the crazy calories give these desserts a try. You will love them and won’t miss the calories one bit.
