I don't know about you and your family, but finding healthy, quick after school and bedtime snacks is sometimes a bit trying...the familiar whine of "there's nothing to eat", while the fridge door stays wide open is as irritating to me as it was to my mother 25 years ago!
Here is a good one the kids love, they can make themselves--and you will like it just as well! (...sometimes I have this late at night after everyone has gone to bed, and I am watching junkie T.V.!)
Peanut Butter and Chocolate "Fondue"
You can make this following the ratio in a small or large quantity--we usually make enough for one or two people...depends on the day...)
2 parts semi sweet chocolate chips
1 part peanut butter (smooth preferable)
Fruit of your choice (this is particularly delicious with banana!)
Melt the chocolate and P.B. in the microwave for about 45 seconds. Mix well.
Dip fruit in and enjoy the deliciousness!
(you can be all fancy and cut up the fruit and use fondue forks if you want--we usually just use our fingers--beware, it is messy! Make sure you have a napkin or 2 on hand!)
