Trick or Treat... definitely Treat

Once again a holiday has snuck up on me. This week has been a whirlwind of assignments, study, baking, sewing halloween costumes and making treats for the little bears to take to school. I have promised myself that next year, I will be more organised and pace myself instead of the craziness that has been my week! If you're looking for a relatively quick and fun treat to give the kiddos this halloween then these mummy pops are just the ticket. Read on for directions.

Afternoon Pick Me Up

I don't know about you, but I find around 3 o'clock everyday I get sluggish and hungry. It's way too early for dinner, which is three hours away, and way too late for lunch, which I've usually had three hours prior. I find having a bit of afternoon tea perks me up and I'll admit, makes me less grumpy. The difficult thing about afternoon tea is, that it is so easy to eat something big and spoil your appetite for dinner or eat something that probably isn't very healthy. A while ago I posted this recipe for muesli balls, which I make as snacks for the kids and while they are delicious, I wanted to change things up a bit. What better way than to use two of my favourite ingredients, cocoa and blueberries. For a quick, healthy and delicious snack, make these antioxidant rich energy balls.
