These little chocolate balls are amazing! Decadent chocolate on the outside, tart real cranberries on the inside. Um, yes! I just found these the other day at Sam’s club and I am already hooked. Now I can make myself an indulgent breakfast, snack and sometimes even a late night snack when I have a hankerin’ for chocolate and not feel so guilty about it in the morning. But be careful because you won’t be the only one who will get hooked on these tasty little treats. For example, exhibit A happened as I was trying to photograph my bag of Dove® Fruit for this article. That hand is not mine, but that of a young child thief trying to sneak some of mommy’s “candy” while she was looking into her camera. 🙂

This morning, from the moment my eyes opened in bed, I knew that it was going to be a doozy of a day. The screeching and yelling between my kids had already started in the living room and I honestly just really wanted to close my eyes and go back to sleep. But, I couldn’t, could I? Up and at ’em sunshine! Time to be momma. So this morning, as I was already expecting the worse, I decided to just go ahead and have chocolate for breakfast. For breakfast? Yes, that’s what I said. Chocolate is my favorite little indulgent. It calms me down and relaxes me when my world is being flipped upside down, or all of my couch cushions (and probably everything else in my house) for that matter. On these days, when I know I will be pushed to my limits, I make myself a special indulgent parfait with Dove® new chocolate and fruit pairings.
So where are all of my late night, closet eating chocoholics? You, ladies, will want to give this super easy and delectable treat a try. I mean, even though it’s got chocolate in it, it also has real fruit and yogurt. So I like to think of it as a “better for you” dessert.
Here is what you will need (but you can always be spontaneous and add different ingredients, but keep the Dove fruit. . that’s the best part.)
1 container of vanilla/plain yogurt
1 handful of Dove® fruit – cranberry, chopped up
1 handful of fresh blueberries, washed
1 handful of fresh strawberries, cut up & washed
To make this pretty and a real mom deserved treat, create layers of yogurt, then fruit, then yogurt, then chocolate fruit and so on until you reach the top of your glass. Then take a mommy time out, relax and enjoy. You can even sit by a breezy window and pretend you’re on the beach if it helps. Just sayin’.
Remember, you can only buy these at Sam’s club for a limited time and I hear that a cherry version will also be available soon! I’m gonna have to check that out too!
Now, I want to hear from you. Since I bought these at Sam’s club, you know I’ve got a BIG bag of them. Besides my fruit parfaits, and eating them strait, what other recipe ideas can you think of to use these in? I’d love to hear your input!
