This is the perfect Valentine's Day Dessert for Two!
Do you need a last minute dessert for two this Valentine's Day? Maybe you'd prefer to steer clear from the high-calorie desserts offered at restaurants, or the big box of Russell Stover chocolates?
Well, you're in luck! This beautiful concoction, while looking and tasting decadent, is your ticket to getting a sweet fix without sabotaging your diet!

I got the idea for this deliciousness from one of my favorite blogs, Createlive; hers certainly doesn't look as fancy, but I had the incredible food styling skills of Mrs. Lauren-Michelle (who also took these photos) to thank for that! Thanks Lauren :)
Let's talk about the calories first, and get that out of the way!
Here's the nutrition facts according to
Granted, a box of pudding will make double this amount (so beware, it's easy to go back for seconds!), but if you stick to the following measurements, you'll come in right under 200 calories:
- 1/3 cup chocolate jell-o
- 1.5 tablespoons of unsweetened coconut flakes
- 3 large strawberries, sliced
- 1/2 tablespoon of sliced almonds
- 1 mini hershey's dark chocolate piece (again, there's a lot of leftovers here- beware!)
- 2 heaping tablespoons of light cool whip
Ta da! Seriously it can't get any easier with only six ingredients!
The jello takes no time at all and from there, it's simply assembly. Layer the jello, coconut, strawberries, and cool whip. Then top it off with your sliced almonds and hershey pieces... Mmmm.
My mouth is watering right now, ya'll!
Oh, and by the way, those Russell Stover chocolates?
I looked 'em up: 280 calories for just FOUR!
Hardly as satisfying or as pretty as these skinny truffles for two! <3
Have a lovely holiday friends!
