When a raw chocolate dessert this delectable falls on our path we can't help but do a little happy dance. This particular recipe just so happens to feature another one of our most beloved superfood favorites as well: the goji berry. Oh, and there's avocado in it! A complete trifecta of goodness. Thank you so much to Emily Von Euw of This Rawsome Vegan Life
