I spent the rest of my week looking for the best ways to get my USDA-recommended three to five servings of "vegetables" per day...

Are you trying to kill me? Death by chocolate-hazelnut cake with raspberry preserves and chocolate ganache (photo above).

Sail away in a banana boat with chocolate, peanut butter, and Oreos.

What's your favorite way to get your recommended servings of chocolate vegetables?
