We decided to take a trip back in the Kansas City Dietitians’ history to my (at that time it was a singular dietitian) original post on February 2, 2011. Do you know what we found (besides that the posts used to be really funny)? There has never once been a Valentine’s Day post! To make up for lost time we have decided to make you a special veggiegram.
Chocolate covered strawberries are so last year and since we didn’t bother posting on Valentine’s Day last year we won’t waste your time with a chocolate covered strawberry recipe. Instead we will post what’s new and exciting for 2015!
Chocolate Covered Raspberry Tarts
6 oz fresh raspberries
1 bar of 70% or greater dark chocolate (our favorites)
2 – 5 oz containers of flavored Greek yogurt (we used raspberry)
1 package phyllo shells (if you have trouble finding this in your local grocery store and can’t find a helpful smile to assist you, try the freezer section)
- Break chocolate into pieces and place in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in microwave for 1 minute. Remove and stir well. Return to microwave for 15-20 more seconds or until chocolate is melted. Do not overheat.
- Place a dollop of Greek yogurt in each shell, top with a raspberry and drizzle with chocolate. Let sit for 1-2 minutes until chocolate has hardened and serve.
Happy Valentine’s Day
