Easy to Follow

Although I would love to stay and tell you more about what I have in store I am just here quickly to tell you all a little bit about this delicious, and simple “snack” that you could totally feed your kids this hot summer! Don’t worry, I will give you more teasers in my next Snacks for Kids post soon!
Back to this recipe… It is super simple to make, and literally probably one of the best combos ever! I mean who does not love fruit and chocolate? Especially when it is homemade and GOOD FOR YOU!
All you need are a few of your favourite fruits, a watermelon (about 1/3), cocoa butter, cacao powder, coconut oil, and a sweetener such as honey, coconut nectar or agave! LOOK BELOW FOR FULL RECIPE!
It is a super simple idea, and really easy to get your kids easy extra fruit, and plant based antioxidants like the Cacao in this recipe.More Snacks for Kids to come! Do not forget to let me know what you thought of this simple recipe.
2 tbsp vegan butter – regular is fine if you’re not plantbased!
handful of vegan chocolate chips – once again regular are fine
Watermelon- sliced whole, around 1 inch thick
Optional:lemon zest for added punch
Cut your watermelon into one inch thick slices, I made two pizzas… and set aside.
Now prepare your chosen fruit, cut and slice how you like, and according to your children’s needs and set them aside as well.
Now for the sauce..Into a medium sized bowl (NOT PLASTIC)combine all the ingredients for the chocolate.
Fill a medium sized pot about 1/4 full, then bring the water to a boil, and then simmer on very low heat.
Place the bowl over the pot (you have now created a water bath..YIPPIE) and let the mixture begin to melt.
Stirring the mixture gently, making sure that the water does not touch the bowl or else the chocolate will burn.
It should take around 3-4 minutes to melt.
Once it is melted set aside and let it cool for a few seconds!
Prepare your platter on a wooden cutting board or platter board.. add the watermelon first and begin to pour the chocolate mixture on top of it. It won’t take long for it to cool and harden so as fast as you can begin to add your additional fruits to the top of your pizza! Finish it off with a bit more chocolate, and the optional zest! Yum!
