Chocolate Covered Raisins

So one of my favorite chocolate treats growing up was definitely Raisinets. I would eat those things daily. I do recall classifying them as a healthy dessert and would even eat two bags a day sometimes, ha. I'm glad I have resigned my not so nutritious habits, but now I have found a way to incorporate my love for these chocolate covered wonders in a tad bit healthier notion.

These put a sweet spin on the typical Raisinet, as the coconut oil and clove spices give it a unique flavor. The coconut oil is good for thinning out the chocolate, but also provides a lovely mellow coconut flavor and yet with no artificial flavors nor synthetic ingredients added.

It blows my mind that companies are still producing "food" that contains synthetic ingredients. GAH. It's terrible and unfortunate, but we just have to protest one step at a time and here my friends is a grand ol' first step in the right direction towards healthier and more wholesome snacks.

This tasty, simple treat is easy to make and shall please any ol' chocolate covered raisin fan out there.

  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
