Every year, I see fun new treat and snack product launches for the back to school rush. But those clever ideas often have two problems. They’re usually loaded with questionable ingredients, and they typically harbor a top allergen or three.

So how can food allergic kids and adults indulge in something tasty and whimsical without resorting to chemical-laden packaged snacks? We can get creative using real food to make our own fun treats!

My most recent solution is these fruity white chocolate-covered snack bites. They’re chopped pieces of Enjoy Life Baked Chewy Bars coated in an easy, homemade, fruit-flavored and dairy-free white chocolate.

The Baked Chewy Bars are a sweet snack in their own right, but sometimes you’ve got to mix things up!

These fun snack bites are naturally colored and flavored with real fruit! They're also so easy to make, even the kids can join in. And don't worry, cocoa/cacao butter is a naturally dairy-free food! You can find it in the baking section of some stores or online.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Cut each bar into bite size pieces. I cut them in half lengthwise to make two long strips. I then cut them in half horizontally and cut each half into thirds for a total of 12 bites per bar.
  2. Line a plate, cutting board, or baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Place the snack bar pieces on the paper and freeze while you prepare the coating.
  3. Melt the cocoa butter in a double broiler or in a medium microwave-safe bowl in the microwave (it takes about 90 seconds).
  4. Sift the powdered sugar into the melted cocoa butter. Add the fruit powder, dairy-free milk powder, and vanilla, and whisk until smooth.
  5. Remove the bar pieces from the freezer and dip them in the fruit chocolate to coat. I use a fork to remove them to help any excess drip away. Place them back on the paper to set up.
  6. Place the bites in the freezer for 5 minutes. If a thicker coating is desired, dip them again, and return them to the freezer for 5 minutes.
  7. If the melted coating thickens up too much for dipping at any time, microwave it on HIGH for 10 to 15 seconds and whisk it.
  8. The bites will keep at room temperature in lunch boxes. But store them in the freezer in an airtight container or freezer bag for optimal freshness and longer storage..
Notes
Fruit Powder Note: You can buy some fruits already powdered, or you can buy freeze-dried fruit and grind it into a powder in your spice grinder or food processor. I tested this recipe with pomegranate powder and powdered my own freeze-dried blueberries, bananas, and Fuji apples. See the post above for suggestions of Flavor Combinations.

Dairy-Free Milk Powder Note: Some brands of coconut milk powder actually contain milk, so be sure to seek out a dairy-free one, like this brand. If desired, you can substitute another milk powder or increase the powdered sugar or fruit powder to get the consistency needed for dipping.

  1. I haven’t had anything from this brand, yet. But the bars sound delicious and I LOVE what you are doing with them. Takes it to a whole different snack/treat place! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I love the SunSeed Crunch and the Caramel Apple. Can’t wait to try the new flavors too. And these cute little fruity bites are genius!

    • If you like those two, then you’ll love the Caramel Blondie and the Carrot Cake Jenn. The former has got chocolate chips added (never a bad thing!), but has a similar flavor vibe. The latter is more of that spiced goodness.

  3. I think I need a stash of these in my purse at all times! I’m such a huge white chocolate fan and I love the idea of using the bars as filling. Can’t wait to try these!

  4. Thank goodness for Enjoy Life, am I right? These look sooooo cute. I don’t have kids or am going back to school but I still kinda wanna make these..haha. I love cute little bite-sized treats, and these are just asking to be tossed on a smoothie bowl. ๐Ÿ˜‰
