Holiday dessert-worthy and still on the diet!

These days it is hard to find a recipe that works for everyone and still taste good enough to qualify as a holiday-worthy dessert. What with all of the gluten free, dairy free, grain free, and reduced sugar dietary needs, it is hard to accommodate them all. If you are a chocolate lover, this recipe will do just that—and still tastes great. You can even go ala mode with some coconut or almond milk ice cream!
