Hello everyone!! I hope you had a lovely fall weekend! Like usual our weekend was busy with things around the house and soaking up lots of baby time. All of you working moms out there know how much you miss your baby during the week. By the time the weekend gets here I don’t want to put her down. I am pretty sure I snuggled with Rowan for 5 or 6 hours on the couch on Saturday. Brandon spent lots of time cleaning up leaves in the yard. Rowan and I had a bunch of mommy daughter outings today…coffee and breakfast at my favorite Dunn Bros in town, grocery shopping at Target, and then a walk to the grocery store by our house. Just us girls. I also got caught up on lots of laundry and cleaning…I know, I am so exciting! I truly am a complete homebody and I cherish weekends like this where it is just me and my little family hanging out.
With fall comes a holiday that I actually don’t really like…Halloween. The thing is, now that I am a mama I am going to have to get over my dislike for Halloween. I am just not into anything spooky, dressing up, or any of that. I do love handing out candy though and seeing kiddos out having fun. Rowan is too little to celebrate Halloween this year, but her daycare is having a party. She will be dressed up in a little pumpkin outfit so her daycare friends don’t think she’s a party pooper. Part of her Halloween party is bringing a treat to share with all of the kids. I am SO excited to be partnering with Enjoy Life Foods to share an idea with you for a Halloween treat!
Enjoy Life makes a ton of different allergy friendly foods and snacks. One of my favorites is their baking chocolate. It comes in dark chocolate morsels, mini semi-sweet chips, and semi-sweet chunks. Their chocolate is gluten free, dairy free, paleo friendly, and free from just about every other top allergen you can think of! Just in time for Halloween the mini and dark chocolate chips now come in adorable little snack-size packs. These packs are so cute and only 140 calories each. You could hand these out for Halloween for kiddos who need an allergy free treat. They would also be perfect for a treat at school or daycare where you don’t know if there are any allergies.
These little mini packs of Enjoy Life chocolate aren’t just for Halloween. They are the perfect amount of chocolate to curb a sweet tooth. Sometimes I just love a scoop of peanut butter with some chocolate chips for a treat.
Here are some other ways to use the Baking Chocolate Snack Packs:
- Use them to make my Paleo Chocolate Chip Mug Cookies.
- Sprinkle them on top of your favorite yogurt.
- Sprinkle them on top of a loaf of banana bread for a chocolatey topping.
- Mix with a handful of almonds or trail mix for a snack.
- Use to top your favorite oatmeal.
