Chocolate Covered Goji Berries

The one chocolate covered goji berry brand offered at my local Whole Foods and other smaller local grocery stores all contain soy lecithin. Unfortunately for me, I can’t eat these due to my food allergy.  So, next best option: make your own!

Goji berries are loaded in vitamin a, vitamin c and iron.  They also contain protein and are packed with essential amino acids.  So don’t feel bad if you indulge a little in these zinc, beta-carotene, and riboflavin rich organic superfoods! 

There’s only a couple ingredients so these are a breeze to make!  The only thing you have to worry about is trying to hold yourself back from eating them before they harden!
