Pairing together fruit and chocolate is something humanity has been doing for a very long time and rightfully so! The way chocolate combines with all sorts of fruit is absolutely divine and we’re not embarrassed to admit that we consider desserts like that much more healthy, which is usually just an excuse to indulge in them way too early in the day. Here are some delicious recipes that wonderfully combine chocolate and fruit!
1. Chocolate Cherry Cookies
If we had to pick only one fruit to eat with something chocolatey, our number one pick would be cherries! The reason for that is because the acidity in cherries pairs marvelously with the sugar in the chocolate, making this a superb treat of balanced flavors.
