This dip makes snack time more fun and interactive for the kids -ok and us adults too!- so you know I had to share it with you! I love that it’s packed with protein and all the flavors kids love.

You won’t believe how easy it is to make, watch how quick it comes together!

You can dip any fruit into its chocolatey-rich delicious texture. Why did I choose chocolate? Because if you ask my kids what their favorite thing to eat is, it would be chocolate! My daughter says that chocolate is its own food group.

Because chocolate recipes are such a huge success at my house, I like to find healthier ways to incorporate this favorite flavor of this into snack time or into their lunchbox as a treat.

I like to load their lunchbox up with apple slices and strawberries for them to dip into this chocolate peanut butter dip. If you make a snack box ahead of time and are wondering how to keep the apples from browning, I will tell you not worry, with this dip, the kids will overlook that the apples have turned brown.

If your kids love peanut butter, this Coconut Peanut Butter Dip is another must-try snack recipe. Both of these dips can be packed in one of these leak-proof snack containers.

I almost forgot, this also makes a terrific party dip for fresh fruit! Just remember to swap out the peanut butter for a nut-free alternative in case a guest has a nut allergy.

What are some of your favorite dips?

    Hi Cindy! You can substitute the peanut butter with a nut-free butter substitute. easy peasy and just as delicious!

Yummy! I made this yesterday and put a small scoop of it on banana slices, arranged the slices on a tray and then threw it in the freezer. It made a delicious chocolate, peanut butter and banana treat!

    I’m so glad it was a success! I just added Greek yogurt to my shopping list for an afternoon snack over here 😉

Such a fun recipe! Do you have any suggestions for making it dairy-free? My son can’t have milk (including yogurt). Thanks!

love this idea! My kids strangely don’t dip things, except for hummus, but I will certainly try this one. Will make it nut-free for my son’s lunchbox. The challenge, though, is his school doesn’t like anything chocolate but I’m hoping they’ll notice this is a healthy chocolate recipe!!

    I hope they enjoy it! And with a nut-free version, it tastes just as delish. 🙂
