But they aren't just a beautiful sweet treat to indulge in on Easter Sunday; they're also packed with protein and healthy fats. Plus, the star ingredient: mindbodygreen's grass-fed collagen+ in chocolate, a hydrolyzed collagen powder that supports strong hair and nails.* (You can also sub in mbg's unflavored version if that's what you have.) Studies have also shown that collagen supplements can support skin elasticity and overall hydration, meaning fewer fine lines with firmer, more supple skin.* This also contains vitamin C and vitamin E, meaning there's extra antioxidant support for your whole body.*

This oh-so-simple recipe yields a rich, decadent dessert with a beauty-enhancing twist—what more could you want?*
