We are 2 moms who met when our sons were in preschool together. As a preschool mom, responsibilities included providing snack for a class full of finicky eaters once a month. We began experimenting and testing recipes and a year later self published a cookbook: Smart Snacks. Smart Snacks contains over 150 kid tested recipes each serving 24 hungry snackers. The book has been reviewed by dietians and each recipe includes a nutritional analysis. The chocolate raspberry dip is a favorite and we always prepare and serve it when we are asked to do a speaking engagement. Betsy modified her grandmothers hot fudge sauce recipe to come up with this delicious, wholesome, low fat treat.
