Diabetes friendly dark chocolate dessert

Dark chocolate bark - a diabetes friendly desserts indulgence

Don't get us wrong—even though it's rich in antioxidants, dessert recipes with dark chocolate aren't exactly healthy food. However, because it packs huge flavor into a small serving, you can get that sweet tooth satisfied when you crave without digging deep into the sweet cookie jar.

This recipe uses Christmas colors, but you can substitute any nuts or dried fruit you prefer.
