15 Skinny Chocolate Recipes

This roundup of 15 skinny chocolate recipes is full of desserts you can feel good about for Valentine's Day or any time you're craving a sweet snack.

As soon as January rolls in, I'm ready for Valentine's Day. Even though it's a cheesy "Hallmark holiday" {there, I said it} I still want to throw pink sprinkles on everything and get immediately pulled into the holiday themed end caps at Target. I want it all. I usually resist buying {another} sparkly coffee mug with hearts on it, but I can't stop myself from enjoying a little extra chocolate to celebrate the holiday. Growing up, my parents gave me a Valentine every year and it always included chocolate. This is a tradition that lives on - when I left for college and then moved to Illinois for law school, my mom never forgot to mail me a delicious box of treats and heart-shaped cookies. This year I received a box of individually wrapped mini Swiss chocolates that I plan to enjoy slowly, if I can keep myself out of the cupboard long enough.

Because I love chocolate so much, I'm always looking for a healthier way to eat it. Today's post includes 15 skinny chocolate recipes from a few of my favorite bloggers. You will find a variety of healthier dessert ideas on this list, some of which are vegan, gluten free, and/or dairy-free.
