Snack Better with DOVE® Fruit

It's March; remember those New Year's Resolutions we made way back at the beginning of 2015?  Who else cheated on that "better eating" one with Valentine's Day... and Fat Tuesday... and that Friday date night... and that occasional Monday when work was just the worst?  Yeah, me too.

Well, I have the perfect indulgence for you tonight that won't break all that good you did today.  It all starts with DOVE® Fruit's whole cherries dipped in creamy DOVE® dark chocolate and makes a great single-serve dessert filled with calcium and protein: Chocolate Covered Cherry Parfaits.

Walking anywhere near the candy aisle is usually never a good idea, but at Walmart, it's next to the card aisle.  I had (kidding!!) to buy Mike a birthday card earlier this month, so obviously my eyes wandered.  Luckily, DOVE® Fruit was right on the end of the aisle.  Apparently I'm not the only one excited for the whole cherries, because there were only two packages left in the entire section!  Sorry, blueberries and cranberries.


Now onto the Chocolate Covered Cherry Parfaits.  All you need are three ingredients:
- a handful (8 or so) DOVE® Fruit whole cherries dipped in creamy DOVE® dark chocolate
- 1/2 cup lowfat vanilla yogurt
- 1 full chocolate graham cracker sheet

I made my parfait with two layers yogurt surrounded by three layers of graham cracker crumbs and crushed DOVE® Fruit Cherries.  It was delicious!

Okay, now let's be real, DOVE® Fruit is also wonderful on its own.  Grab a handful and it's definitely a better-for-you indulgence to keep your sweet tooth in check!

Happy Snacking!! 

How have you been snacking better in the new year?  Have you tried any flavors of DOVE® Fruit yet?

I love chocolate covered anything, but I agree when it's fruit it just seems healthier...right?? I didn't know Dove had their own line of this, but since Dove chocolate is wonderful I bet these are amazing! I definitely want to try the cherries!!
