February is a time for love which means you might not want to spend all your time in the kitchen. Peanut Butter and Chocolate Covered Pretzels. Dark chocolate infused with peanut butter dipped over a salty pretzel and decorated with a few sprinkles to set the mood. It’s enough to make the faint of heart grab their smelling salts, fan their face and say, “Oh my!”
I had so much fun making Frozen Banana Bites (inspired by my lovely mother-in-law, Diane) and because I live by the motto, “more is better” I decided to try this concept of freezing chocolate around chunks of fruit. We need to get our fruit in each day, right? A bit of fruit covered in dark chocolate and frozen so there’s a crisp crunch when you bite into it. It’s so fulfilling, you’ll find yourself satisfied with just one. Well, make that two because you know what I say? More is better!
I’ve been mulling over a new saying lately, similar to “form over function” but this one is “health over flavor.” That’s because I realize most of my days I’m looking for balance between these two seemingly opposing words. Can we have a little of both? These Frozen Banana Bites are proof that we can!
Although it’s typically the coldest month of the year, February is really my kind of month. The month of love. And what goes better with a little loving than sweet and creamy chocolate? Well, here’s your chance to find out. Celebrating the month of love, I’ve teamed with Allison’s Gourmet to give away some chocolate, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Forrest Gump said that “Life is like a box of chocolates…you never know what you’re gonna get.” But one thing you can know for sure about this give-away, one lucky winner is going to be guaranteed some über-delicious chocolates from an award winning online vegan bakery and confection boutique. Yipee! Come check out the many ways to enter!
