Desserts can sometimes be tough on a paleo diet, but this one is not only delicious but also simple!  Simply place a chunk of dark chocolate (I like to use 99% unsweetened chocolate, but anything above 75% or 80% will be fine, especially for a treat) into a microwavable bowl. Note that if you’re not used to eating chocolates over 80%, they can taste very bitter. In fact, even people who enjoy very dark chocolates have trouble accepting 99% or 100%. It’s definitely taken me some time to start enjoying it!

For a bit of added deliciousness, drizzle a bit of almond butter over the berries.
