Do your kids love chocolate as much as mom does? Do you have a play date or sleepover in your future? If so this post is for you.
The other day I was multitasking in the kitchen (yes, I know, for those of you who know me, this is not a shocker). I was hands deep in mixing up homemade granola and melting chocolate to dip pretzels in for my kids' play date the next day. You know how I say the best things that come out of the kitchen are those that you did by accident? With a 4 year old chatting and a 1 year old crying, I was on the verge of losing my mind and I carelessly proceeded to grab the granola I was breaking apart with my hands (that's another story all together) and drop it in the chocolate. Did you catch that? At the beginning of this adventure I was planning to make chocolate dipped pretzels and now I have this huge glob of chocolate covered granola. Oops!!!
So what do you do when this happens to you? And it will happen... Well, you just pick up this huge glob of chocolate covered granola and eat it! Yep- go ahead and take a huge bite and think to yourself, "Wow- this tastes incredible. Job well done mom. Job well done!"
With my new enlightenment on this chocolate-covered granola, I decided this snack would be the perfect fuel for our play date- packing huge flavor and loaded with whole grains. It is a perfect bite-size snack to energize the kids and make them giddy.
