I am a chocoholic and appreciate ideas such as these. I usually eat 2 dark chocolate truffles for my evening snack. I will have to try this as I also love nut butters. Thanks Fitness for the great ideas.

This looks good -too good, and that is the problem. I could never eat a small portion of a snack like this. If I would eat it, I would have to eat more, and then some more, and then some more, etc. A lot of people with weight problems cannot tolerate foods such as this. We need to stay away from them to eliminate cravings.

Its funny. I used to love chocolate, but after not eating sweets or candy or anything for as long as I have, this doesn't even look appetizing to me xD

hockeygal4ever: Changing up your nut butters adds variety to your diet, which is great. Different nut butters have different flavors and different mineral/micronurient profiles. Also, having a variety of options available are great for people with food allergies, like my kids.

What is the purpose of using "almond" butter as opposed to a peanut butter? Just curious. I've seen that technically they are basically the same nutrition wise/calorie, etc., especially when you get a lower fat PB. I think I'd like PB better flavor wise but just curious what the reasoning was for using the other "butters" as opposed to a peanut?

No, there are 2 servings on the plate. Not the whole 4 servings. So, technically, there's 158 calories on the plate. The idea of this recipe is to only eat one serving at a time, just to get your mind to think it got what it needed to curbe the craving.

People, get real. If it says the recipe makes 4 servings and there are 8 squares of chocolate then there are two pieces of chocolate per serving. Get it! One serving is the mini sandwich-2 squares of chocolate with the nut butter inbetween.
