In the evening after dinner I sometimes crave sweets. It can be challenging to find a sweet snack that won’t elevate my blood sugar too much as well as being nutritionally dense and is YUMMY! Dark Chocolate Covered Apples are definitly the solution for me and diabetics with type 1 & type 2 diabetes. They are easy to make! Try melting dark chocolate over sliced green apples or strawberries, they are delicious and full of fiber.
Dark chocolate covered fruit can be a great alternative to traditional late night snack options. When looking for a dark chocolate bar try to choose 70% cacao or higher. The percentage of cacao in dark chocolate is important because it will usually have less sugar and more fiber per serving.
How to make Sliced Dark Chocolate Covered Apples:
- Slice one Apple (any type)
- Melt 1.5 oz chocolate in a double boiler until liquid
- Dip apples in chocolate or drizzle chocolate over top
- Put apples in refrigerator for 7-10 mins or until chocolate has hardened.
