These are a fun treat I made for the kiddos for Easter -- Ha! They don't realize they are healthy!
Right before bed, my 6YO asked, can we have a treat AFTER breakfast tomorrow?! She was thrilled that of course she can! We'd even go wild and let her eat candy before breakfast, but if she is happy to have breakfast first, fine with me!
PS- for the record, all 3 kids had candy BEFORE breakfast! Still, it's nice that they're learning that it's smart to eat FOOD BEFORE treats! What a lovely day we enjoyed!
Ok, so for the FUDGE!
Simply grind 1/2 c oats in a food chopper to form a flour.
Next stir together:
1/2 c oats
1/4 c unsweetened cocoa (you can reduce this and increase the oats so it's not as strong a flavor :)
3/4 c NATURAL peanut butter
Just mix and mix with a spoon and maybe a knife to cut through the peanut butter. After a few minutes, a very thick FUDGE will form! Fill container with mixture, flattening down solid. You can use any container -- tonight I used a silicone cupcake pan!
Now freeze mixture for about an hour, and enjoy!
I got this basic idea a long time ago from the darling Chocolate Covered Katie! She makes a million versions, I'm sure this one is similar to something she makes! Check out her site for more delicious ideas at www.chocolatecoveredkatie.com !
