Chocolate and peanut butter always hits the spot! Trust me, you are a going to die over this skinny version, it’s swoon worthy! And no guilt! That’s a win win in my book!
Happy Halloween! This year our family dressed up for a church Halloween party. As I mentioned before, I’m not a creative costume mom. I just can’t seem to get into it. That’s why all of us ended up being something super simple.
After my kids get home from trick or treating I confiscate their loot and add it to the family candy bucket. Yes, I’m a Halloween candy Nazi and I don’t really know why. It’s not like my kids don’t have access to plenty of candy all year long. Maybe it’s because I don’t want to clean wrappers out of the basement for the next, um, two days. Because that’s about how long it would take my 8 year old to eat his gone! My 11 year old would securely stow his away in his pistol safe for a rainy day. My 14 year old would figure out the pistol safe code and eat it all in one helping. Can you see the fights beginning already? Me too! Maybe that’s why I confiscate it ALL!
I love chocolate and candy and desserts galore! I must admit that after eating a plethora of the goodness I begin to crave healthier foods. Now, I’m not claiming this dip falls into one of the healthy food categories. It’s just a little skinnier than a full-fledged and fattening treat. Don’t worry though. It’s so creamy and dreamy that you won’t even notice it’s healthy, unless you consider anything served with an apple is healthy!
It only takes a few ingredients, less than five minutes, and a few of your kids Halloween candy to throw together this ultra decadent dip! If you aren’t into stealing candy from your kids you could either leave it out, or add mini chocolate chips.
Add a little yogurt, honey, and chocolate peanut butter to a mixing bowl. Mix until smooth.
Chop a few of those confiscated candy bars and add to the yogurt mixture. Stir.
That’s it! This dip is delicious served with graham crackers, pretzels, brownie bark, apples, bananas, strawberries, marshmallows, and probably any other decadent thing you can think of!
This happens to be one of my favorite ways to use up that leftover Halloween candy. By the way, I’m dying to know if you steal your little ghost and goblins candy too? Or, are you a nice parent who lets them have free reign of the loot?
