One of the best things about going low carb, or trying to eat less sugar, is that there are so many creative cooks out there to make amazing recipes. I sometimes worry that the kids are “missing out” because they don’t get as much junk food as their friends. I know it is important for them to eat healthy, but sometimes it can be difficult making food special for them, especially since I have never really enjoyed cooking. I am getting better at it though!
This Easter season, I was asked to make a dessert for our family gathering. I am trying out some of these recipes, and I am going to use this mold to make fun shapes for the kids. With all the candy and junk food out there, this is a way they can still enjoy a treat without the added sugar and carbs.
These are beautiful! And she gives you multiple options for flavor and chocolate (white chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate) so you can mix and match!
I love salted caramel and chocolate. Put these in an easter egg mold and you are ready to go! They definitely don’t look healthy.
This has some great ideas on natural food coloring as well. I love Maria’s site. There are so many good recipes!
This one is delicious and easy! Brownies are a big hit with the kiddos, and they don’t know it is sugar free.
This recipe is the simplest of these, and some days you really need simple.
Easter Cake Pop Molds – I got these molds to make fun shapes to decorate. They will even get to help decorate some this weekend, so that we can have a fun (although messy) memory together.
Colorful Cake Pop Sticks – I think these are fun colors, and they are pretty inexpensive.
There are some really talented people making dessert! I love looking at Pinterest to get ideas of what you could try in terms of decorations.
