4 Simple, Yummy Desserts For Your Chocolate-Loving Kid

You can enjoy them too!

As kids grow up, they develop their own individual preferences in food. For example, you can easily observe if your child has a particular fondness for chocolate and chocolate-flavored snacks and desserts.

Good thing chocolate has its benefits, too. It has nutrients such as flavanols, which are believed to help blood flow. And while too much of anything isn't good, it's okay to let them indulge in something yummy once in a while. There’s no reason to ban chocolate and sweets altogether.

In fact, delicious food can present an opportunity to teach your child about moderation. Let your kids know how much is too much. And when they do get to enjoy a treat, make it worthwhile with yummy recipes. You can even make it a reward. Food, after all, isn’t solely about health; it’s also a great way to bond and form positive connections within the family.

If your child loves chocolate, consider making these simple, mouthwatering chocolate-based desserts:

Brownies a la Mode

Here’s a classic treat that your child will definitely enjoy. You'll probably love it, too!

Take a couple of pieces of Super Delights Brownie Bites and heat them in a toaster oven for three to five minutes. (The aroma alone is sure to get your kid’s attention!) Once the Brownie Bites are warm and crisp on the outside, place them on a small plate or bowl. Top with vanilla ice cream, and serve immediately!

No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars

Does your kid love peanut butter cups? Make your own at home, using a few simple ingredients!

First, melt butter in a pan and set aside. Then, crush graham crackers into crumbs. Mix the melted butter, the cracker crumbs, some sugar, and a few scoops of peanut butter. Spread the mixture in a pan.

Using a separate container, melt chocolate chips in the microwave. Pour the chocolate on top of the peanut-butter-graham mixture, then chill in the refrigerator for an hour. Once it’s nice and firm, slice into squares and serve.

Chocolate Banana Pops

Looking to add more fruits into your child’s diet? Try coating bananas with a little chocolate to transform them into a treat!

First, peel ripe bananas, and cut them in half. Stick them with a popsicle stick on one end. Place these on a tray, cover with plastic wrap, and put in the freezer for about two hours. Melt chocolate chips into a fudge using a microwave, then cool the mixture. Take the frozen bananas and coat them in the chocolate fudge. Let it set, then serve.

Brownie S'mores

S’mores are another favorite among kids. They are typically made using graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows. Put a twist on this classic by using brownies instead of graham crackers and chocolate!

Place Super Delights Brownie Bites on a toaster oven tray and top each Brownie Bite with a single large marshmallow. Heat until the marshmallows brown and melt slightly—enough to stick to the Brownie Bites. Serve warm.

Super Delights Brownie Bites aren’t just a great ingredient for desserts—they taste great on their own and make for a quick snack, too! These Brownie Bites are amazing treats for kids who love chocolate, so remember to always have a pack of Super Delights at home for snack time. And while you're at it, treat yourself to a bite—or two—as well.
