It only took a small amount of dark chocolate to make enough shaved dark chocolate for two servings. Coarsely chop the pecans if you’re using them. Put 5-6 oz. Greek Yogurt into a parfait dish and drizzle with a little agave nectar (or use sugar-free maple syrup if you prefer.) Then sprinkle with the shaved dark chocolate and pecans and enjoy! And if you’ve ever been to Greece and had Greek Yogurt with Honey and Walnuts, this is a spin-off from that classic Greek dessert!
