Lady Locavore was recently enjoying a little one-one time with her big sister. “Girl’s Night Out” was the occasion.  It was late in the afternoon; too early to meet the girls just yet, so chatting, laughing and sharing was in order.  Knowing my passion for chocolate and how much I like very healthy things and that dessert being the best part of any meal, Sis, with those priorities in mind, decided to offer me dessert first, an amuse-bouche so to speak, along with a glass of my favourite beverage, before going out.  She had this decadent guilt-free dessert which was just begging to be enjoyed. “Want to try something new? Something chocolate? Something really good?” “Why, of course!” was my immediate reaction.  The texture and taste of these treats is amazing. Thanks Big Sis!
