Boxed and ready to eat, this snack is a Love filled delight! I wanted more, and decided to make a second batch!
Boxed and ready to eat, this snack is a Love-filled delight! I wanted more, and decided to make a second batch.

These treats were so easy and so quick, and full of good stuff to eat like protein and antioxidants. It can also be made Gluten, Dairy and Egg-free for your little ones with sensitivities. It’s the Valentine Solution for keeping the whole family on the right track to good nutrition!

It is also a great kids’ activity; super easy so they could really do it themselves. A great way to have fun and help kids learn about cooking and sharing the Love this time of year! They will probably request these for their lunch box too….just make sure they can be kept cold. 🙂

Ingredients:
1/2 cup nutbutter (peanut, almond, cashew, etc.)

1 1/2 tablespoons Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips (I use Enjoy life because they are allergen free) or other chocolate chip variety

1 1/2 tablespoons Dried Goji berries

1 tablespoon maple syrup

Mix well and spread into a small freezer proof dish or mold into any shape with a candy mold tray. I used a plastic tray with little hearts. (I would try silicone molds the next time to eliminate the small bit of effort I had to use with the butter knife to pop them out of the tray.)

Wrap in wax paper, boxes, or tie in a pretty bag with ribbons….that is if you can wait to eat them. Om nom nom. We ate two or three before they even got in the Valentine Box!

Enjoy and have a Happy Valentine’s Day. <3 <3 <3
