Healthy Halloween Bark

Halloween kicks off the best time of year - the holiday season!  Regular ol' candy never makes me feel good, but I look forward to trying this healthier option without all the strange additives.  Let us know what you think if you try it!



From Kelsey:
We are ending the October series with an easy and fun Halloween treat!  Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays not only because you get loads of candy, but also because you get to come up with fun creative recipes to make. Also, you get to carve pumpkins!            

This Healthy Halloween Bark is extremely easy to make, only taking about five minutes with only contains six ingredients. This is amazing compared to other regular candies/desserts that are packed with countless ingredients.  It is perfect for those of you wanting a healthy alternative to the artificial and chemical-packed candy.  The Sunspire chocolate pieces used in this recipe look exactly like Reese’s Pieces but contain no artificial coloring or GMO’s. Their natural coloring makes them the perfect item to use when creating a dessert for Halloween or Thanksgiving. I encountered this exceptional dessert from Food Babe’s blog. 

Hopefully this dessert will be a hit in your house so that you can stay away from the processed ones. I hope everyone has a great Halloween!!
