Valentine’s Day Treat

February 12, 2009 | Posted by admin

treatMaking those little ones feel special doesn’t take a lot of work.  This super simple recipe adapted from a recipe in the February 2009 issue of Fitness Magazine will put a big smile on your little one’s face.  Prepare ahead of time and stash these tasty treats in their lunch box or backpack for a pleasant tasty surprise.  This is also a great healthy party treat.

Purchase decorative valentine bags at your local dollar store.  For each bag of treats use the following recipe.

1 Tbsp dark chocolate chips
1 Brownwood Acres Dried Tart Cherries or Brownwood Acres Dried Wild Blueberries
1 Tbsp chopped walnuts
1/4 cup high-fiber cereal of your choice, such as Cherrios, Honey Nut Cheerios, or Kashi Heart to Heart Honey Toasted Oat (I like using the Kashi as it has heart-shaped oats).

Combine all ingredients, place in decorative bag, tie closed with ribbon or twisty tie.

Yield:  1 serving
