It can be daunting trying to create organic, or healthy foods for your family 24/7. Especially when you have so many things to do, and we moms know our work is never done! So why not add this sweet and nutritious (just don’t tell the kids) snack bite to your repertoire? It can be made quickly and easily and can even be frozen and thawed to eat again later. Best yet? It has chocolate and kids will eat almost anything if there is chocolate in it!
