Dark Chocolate Craisins® Nut Clusters with Sea Salt are the perfect guilty pleasure sweet treat that are both healthy & delicious!
Happy New Year!
I don’t know about you, but one of my new year’s resolutions is to eat healthier. A pretty standard new year’s resolution right?
The only problem is that I LOVE chocolate! So in order for me to keep my new year’s resolution I had to come up with a way to have my cake & eat it too!
Although cake really wouldn’t fit into my health plan…
However, these Dark Chocolate Craisins® Nut Clusters with Sea Salt definitely do!!
So to make my chocolate cravings a bit more of a healthy addiction, I decided to add something that is crazy yummy, sweet, & already super healthy! Craisins® Dried Cranberries!
I already add Craisins® to my salads & will sometimes even eat them by the handful for a snack, but adding them to these bite size desserts is now my new favorite way to enjoy them!
And did you know that 1/4 cup of Craisins® Dried Cranberries is equivalent to 1/2 cup serving of fruit!? I didn’t, but now I feel even better about indulging in these sweet treats!
And luckily, since it’s just Roger & I at home, these Craisins® Dried Cranberries come in a variety of packaging sizes (& flavors) which means we can grab a 5 oz pack from Walmart in the dried fruit section & have just the right amount for the 2 of us.
And while we were grocery shopping on Friday, restocking our home with yummy food after being gone for 2 weeks on winter break, I also picked up these Cranberry Almond Craisins® Fruit Clusters to try! I had already tried the Cranberry Granola Craisins® Fruit Clusters on one of our trips north & love them, so I was super excited to try these too!
They are like on-the-go bite size cereal pieces! And they make great snacks for car rides!
Yes, I do need snacks for our 2 & 1/2 hour car ride between Birmingham & Chattanooga!
These Dark Chocolate Craisins® Nut Clusters with Sea Salt are crazy delicious & easy to make! Plus you can customize them by adding your favorite nut or assortment of nuts! I chose pistachios because they are tasty, healthy, & I love the green & cranberry red colors together!
I should also admit that after I took the above picture I was extremely tempted to go snuggle under a blanket & eat the whole thing with a spoon… And I probably would have if Roger hadn’t been home!
As you can see my kick for being healthier this year needs some work. But at least I’m trying right!?
