Let the Honey Bunny in! Here are a few quick ideas for candy/goodies for Easter.
Easter eggs are fine, however some of the dyes do get into the egg white, therefore, these dyes are non-toxic and won’t cause hyperactivity:
FOOD DYES – NATURAL
CHOCOLATE CANDY that doesn’t bite back:
1 part raw cacao powder
1 part cocoa butter
1/2 part raw honey
Melt the cocoa butter in a double boiler or on low heat. Add the rest of the ingredients and remove from heat. Whisk for a while to make sure ingredients are blended. Pour into molds or custard dishes. Refrigerate.
Presto! CANDY that won’t take you down!!
HERE’S THE COCOA BUTTER:
And here are some molds for your chocolate, if you want!
AND, if your kid likes peanut butter and chocolate…these are a winner! Just roll each ball in plastic wrap.
REESIES PEESIES…OR PEANUT BUTTER COCOA BALLS
Organic natural peanut butter (the only ingredients are peanuts and salt) Raw Cacoa Powder (at health food stores)
Raw Honey (get it locally if you can!)
Start with the peanut butter in a small bowl. Put a few tablespoons in the bowl and begin mixing in the cacao powder and honey slowly, tasting all the way. When it hits the right sweetness and cocoa peanut flavor for you, stop. Take about a teaspoonful and roll it into a ball in your hands. Place on saucer and keep going. Good luck not eating it all in one sitting. You can store in a container in the refrigerator for later, as well. Enjoy!
