The season of the heart shaped box is here! Or, as I like to call it - "chocolate season".
The displays of chocolate seem to be at the end of every aisle of the supermarket. I think I found myself picking up and putting down about four different beautiful packages. Yes, I did end up buying some - but not for myself, of course.

I have compiled a list of healthier and lower calorie chocolate options to keep you from consuming too many from the heart shaped box (2 chocolates = 150 calories).
I use chocolate chips in many of the recipes to give the flavor of chocolate without adding too many of the calories.
