From WHFoods: Strawberries & Chocolate

Good Morning Neighbors! You know I'm a big fan of chocolate & strawberries and back in March issued the Chocolate & Strawberries Challenge. We continue to learn that small wisely chosen indulgences contribute to our mental happiness and nutritional health.

One of my favorite resources for current nutritional information is World's Healthiest Foods at

This week's featured food is Strawberries and I'm all over this recipe for strawberries with chocolate creme. If you are sugar sensitive replace the maple syrup with your favorite sugar-free syrup.
