Healthy Recipes and Treats for Christmas

Healthy Recipes (279)     
It's that magical time of year where our thoughts are turning to Christmas parties, lunches, dinners and every other opportunity to drink,eat and be merry. Unfortunately what lurks in the background is the guilt of knowing that these overindulgences will result in an expanded waistline.

But it doesn't have to be this way. I have unearthed what can only be the most amazingly delicious blog for dessert junkies. As if this isn't enough to begin salivating over, the recipes are all healthy and vegan friendly too.

Chocolate Covered Katie is nirvana to candy-a-holics. This clever lady has somehow managed to take all of those naughty treats we love, such as peanut butter cups, brownies and chocolate fudge and turn them into something you can have every day- in fact I recommend multiple times a day.

After drooling over the pictures on Katie's blog I decided to make the Healthy Chocolate Twix bars as I am a Twix fanatic as well as an all-things-chocolate fanatic.

I am no Nigella in the kitchen but with these easy peasy recipes I managed to make something that closely resembled the original photo and tasted sensational. It is really hard to believe that these treats are made from healthy things.

So, instead of handing out the same old boxes of Cadbury's Roses this year, why not make some no-bake oreo cookies for your party guests, friends and family.

In fact, why not make them for everyone - I have well and truly been converted to the chocolate covered dark side!
