Scanning the supermarket aisles these days, it’s tricky to find snack foods that appeal to kids but aren’t off the charts for salt, sugar or fat. This is a quick recipe that delivers a great chocolate flavour in a lighter format that tastes so good, kids won’t even realize it’s a healthy option. I love to serve it up with a variety of fresh fruit, so children can choose their favourites. Even if you’re serving toddlers, take a moment to present a new recipe in a pretty format as we all eat with our eyes first and are drawn to food that looks attractive. Good luck keeping the adults away from this yummy, kid-friendly treat!
