This simple recipe is a great one to try with children. It’s an opportunity for toddlers to do one of their favorite activities-- dump and fill!
Older children will feel a sense of accomplishment, and both will benefit from the sensory experience of squishing ingredients together & rolling into balls.
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut
- 1⁄2 cup cocoa powder
- 1⁄4 cup coconut oil
- 3 tablespoons honey
- a pinch of salt
Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl and stir well. Pinch off pieces of dough and roll into balls about one inch in diameter. Best if chilled for 4 hours before eating.
