Whose kiddo deserves a surprise this week? Well, the kid pleasing chocolate treats I'm going to share with you today should do the trick! My son has been getting rave reviews from his teachers lately, so I decided I wanted to treat him to a little chocolatey goodness. We try to eat healthy, well balanced diets at our house, but I am certainly not opposed to letting my kids have a treat every now and again. And if you're going to make some treats, you might as well make the best kind of treats...kid pleasing CHOCOLATE TREATS!
My motto has always been everything in moderation. Splurging a bit seems to take the pressure off which makes it easier to turn to healthier options the majority of the time. That's what works for my family anyway. And if your kids love chocolate as much as mine do, when they are allowed to have it, it's all the more special! So, let's talk about those kid pleasing chocolate treats I mentioned, shall we? I rounded up ten of my family's favorites. Each and every one is kid tested and approved. Haha!
