If there’s one thing my husband and I love, it’s a sweet treat after the kids go to bed. There’s no denying that we both have a fierce sweet tooth, but I vowed this year that I would do my best to find better choices. Happily, it’s mid-March and I’m still on the wagon! That’s not to say we don’t indulge, because we definitely do. But we’re working on finding better-for-you dessert options so we can have our sweets and eat them, too. One discovery that’s helping us do that is DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut.
New DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut combines the wellness benefits of dark chocolate with real chewy dried fruits and crunchy nuts, which go far in satisfying a craving for something sweet. Forget the dye-filled candies and corn syrupy sweets that might seem tempting. When you combine real chocolate, fruits and nuts with the goodness of vanilla yogurt and tempting coconut, you’ve got a treat that will keep you on track while it keeps your sweet tooth smiling.
- 1 32. ounce container vanilla yogurt
- 1 8–10 ounce jar berry preserves or jam
- ½ cup DOVE® Dark Chocolate Blueberry & Vanilla Cashew
- ½ cup DOVE® Dark Chocolate Raspberry & Honey Roasted Almond
- ½ cup shredded coconut
- Line a metal baking sheet (with sides) with parchment paper. Spread yogurt out on baking sheet to about a ½" thickness. Drop preserves by the spoonful over the surface of yogurt; use the sharp tip of a knife to swirl preserves through yogurt. Sprinkle DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut pieces over yogurt. Sprinkle coconut over yogurt.
- Freeze until solid; crack into pieces and serve.
Rethink Frozen Yogurt
The key to the yum factor in this recipe is using a good organic yogurt with a great natural vanilla flavor – if you start there, you won’t need to add anything else besides toppings. And what better topping to use than a light sprinkling of delicious yummies from our friends at DOVE®! Their newest addition, DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut blends, contain not only the DOVE® chocolate we know and love, but sweet berries and crunchy nuts coated in flavors that downright sing when they’re together.

You’ll want to start this freezer bark a bit ahead of time so it can freeze through before serving. The actual prep time is only a few short minutes (with hardly any dishes or utensils!) so it definitely qualifies as an easy recipe. Start by spreading your yogurt out on a parchment-lined metal baking sheet. You’ll want one with sides so none of your yogurt or chocolates escape.
Drop your favorite fruit preserves by the spoonful wherever you’d like. Use a little, or use a lot–it’s up to you. But remember – your bark may not crack as nicely if you go overboard.
The tip of a sharp knife will help you swirl it all together.
Choose your chocolate. I used two DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut varieties: Blueberry & Vanilla Cashew along with the Raspberry & Honey Roasted Almond. The DOVE® Dark Chocolate Blueberries work well, too, because they’re a good size for scattering and don’t get too hard to bite when frozen.
Finally, sprinkle your little heart out.
Don’t you just want to dig right in? No! You can’t. Now you have to put it in the freezer.
Once it’s frozen good and solid, crack apart your bark right on the parchment paper and serve. You’ll want to serve pretty quickly because it will melt, but you’ll be surprised how much it tastes like ice cream!
It’s a better-for-you indulgence that is sure to become a warm-weather favorite.
