Healthy Swaps-Chocolate Coated Confections

The ultimate guide to having your cake and eating it too (continued).

Do you love Goobers and Raisinets ? Strawberries dipped in chocolate? Chocolate covered macadamia nuts? With all the latest news on the health benefits of dark chocolate (and the advent of Splenda), these delicious confections need not be relegated to the "good old days" list. Cover antioxidant-rich berries such as blueberries, blackberries or raspberries with a coating of high-quality, unsweetened chocolate – and you've nearly got a health food! (Stick to a small handful, of course, and monitor your own reaction.)

Chocolate Coated Confections Place your fruit or nuts in the freezer for 30 minutes. Melt a good-quality, unsweetened chocolate in a double boiler, whisking in a bit of cream, hot water, and Splenda to taste.

Pour into a zip lock bag and take your homemade candy to the movies.

I was called into a conference room where two men in their mid-30s were leaning into a computer monitor reviewing something I had apparently written and submitted to them. It was some sort of documentation explaining my need to be with Charlie in case of emergency. They seemed like a couple of nice guys and appeared accommodating to my requests. My outside-looking-in self didn’t know what to make of the animated images my dream self added to...
