She {hearts} Chocolate Kale Chips

Kale has been my go-to veggie for the last couple years now! I put it in all of my smoothies. It’s loaded with anti-inflammatory antioxidants and has some amazing health benefits, right up there with blueberries (which is my go-to fruit). Rarely do I miss a day of these two super foods! And if I do, my body gets mad…no joke. I try my best to keep my body happy.

I know you do too, so I wanted to share with you a fun way I just discovered to eat my greens. ;) Some of you “veggie-challenged” people out there might even like this recipe, don’t knock it ’til ya try it! :)

Chocolate Kale Chips

Ingredients

1 bunch kale, stems discarded and leaves torn into roughly 1 1/2-inch pieces. You can use the “curly” kale which is easier to find and just as good for you, but I used Dino kale.

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 Chocolate (12-ounce) package semisweet or dark chocolate chips

Wax paper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Toss the kale with the olive oil and spread out on two baking sheets.

Roast for 8-15 min, or until lightly browned and crispy.

Let cool.

Put the chocolate into a heatproof medium bowl. Fill a medium saucepan with a couple inches of water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Turn off the heat; set the bowl of chocolate over the water to melt. Stir until smooth. (Alternatively, melt the chocolate in a microwave at half power for 1 minute, stir and then heat for another minute or until melted.)

Place kale on wax paper and use a spoon to drizzle chocolate lightly over kale. Let chocolate cool and harden before serving.

Hope you enjoy!
