Homemade & Healthy
We know that Halloween is a time to indulge in those classic candies, but this year we thought it would be fun to get kids involved in making homemade Halloween candy to have at the house! Since Halloween is going to look a little different this year, this is a great way to do something fun with the kids at home.
The biggest difference in these homemade treats versus old school candy bars is the ingredients. Although indulging from time to time is okay, it's important to pay attention to the ingredients that are in the foods you eat. Unfortunately, a lot of the candy bars on the market in the U.S. have ingredients that you cannot understand. If you have no clue what an ingredient is, you probably shouldn't be eating too much of it! This is especially important with young kids because they are growing and need quality food to help build their immune systems. If you're in need of more ideas for your kids, we have a blog and more kid-friendly recipes for you!
The best part about this is that it's easy and requires little to no effort. That's always a parent win, right? Unless the kids decide to throw sprinkles of course, but we hope not for your sake. For this recipe we suggest getting kid friendly utensils so they can be involved from beginning to end. Before running out to the store to get materials, ask the kids what kind of chocolate they want to use, what kind of halloween sprinkles, and of course, what kind of LivBar they want to use!

Cut your LivBars into 6 equal pieces.

Repeat with the white chocolate.
Dip your cut LivBar into melted chocolate of choice and set on parchment paper.
Top with desired sprinkles and toppings.
