Pregnancy cravings can vary from the fairly average to the insanely weird (I used to dip pickles in chocolate pudding), but nearly every pregnant lady I know has had one craving in common — chocolate. But sometimes when the sweet tooth strikes, you don’t necessarily want a dessert. You just need a little (or not-so-little) taste of chocolate. And that’s where having some insanely delicious DIY chocolate snack recipes come in handy.
Being pregnant is a huge strain on your body, so any chance you get to prop your feet up and Netflix and chill with yourself is huge. But no pregnant lady should have to relax without a snack bowl nearby, especially if there’s chocolate involved. Chocolate covered fruit, chocolate dips, and crunchy chocolate treats are great ways to hit the sweet snack spot. And the best thing is that they’re relatively easy to make and don’t require a lot of extra ingredients. These nine DIY chocolate snacks are sure to keep you from going crazy in the kitchen, steer you away from a box of brownies, and enjoy that Breaking Bad marathon without the munchies. You can also enjoy the fact that these recipes make big enough batches for you to enjoy for longer than one Netflix sesh. Well, unless you’re super hungry.
