It’s Wednesday! And not just any Wednesday, but the Wednesday of the first week of school…. so I think its safe to say we’re in need of a little chocolate in our lives today!
Anyone else feel me? Oh thank goodness!
I am seriously SO SO excited about today’s post because it’s not only sponsored by one of my favorite brands, Annie’s, but it also features my very first step-by-step food video! Check it out:
So I know I’m a little late to the food blogger video game, but I’m so glad I finally jumped on board because this was so much fun to make! So fun, and so hilarious…
Hilarious, because the hands you see throughout the video belong to my fiancé Nate who… well… doesn’t dabble in the kitchen too often. So when I signed him up to be my hand model / sous chef, I had NO IDEA how it was going to turn out. Let’s just say there were lots of laughs, a few mishaps, and chocolate EVERYWHERE.
Let’s talk a little bit about how much I love Annie’s. Not only do their products taste amazing, but I love their mission of sharing natural and organic foods that use ingredients sourced in a sustainable manner. They also support community outreach by funding school gardens (right on, Annie’s!) and reducing environmental waste. So cool!
Today’s recipe features one of Annie’s certified organic cereals, Cocoa Bunnies— so cute, right?!? These babies are made with Fair Trade Cocoa, which helps provide sustainable income to farmers and their families, are packed with wholesome organic ingredients, and are totally delicious!
I decided to use these Certified Organic Cocoa Bunnies to make a delicious yet seriously easy back-to-school treat: cereal bars! My mom used to make us cereal bars all the time when we were growing up and they were such a fun treat to come home to after a long day at school.
So I decided to recreate these fun treats using a more wholesome cereal, a little peanut butter, and of course, dark chocolate. You guys won’t believe how simple this recipe is! Just mix the wet ingredients together, combine them together with the cereal, freeze and eat. Oh, but not before you drizzle them with lots of rich dark chocolate 🙂
I love having these treats on hand for a pick-me-up after school or to fulfill my nightly after dinner sweet-craving. Crispy, crunchy, perfectly sweet and totally addicting!
So if you’re in need of a little chocolate like I am today, I totally recommend you head to your local Target or Whole Foods for a box of these Organic Cocoa Bunnies! I promise they don’t disappoint 😉
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone— we’re over the hump!
