I have a sweet tooth!  Especially in the afternoons around 3pm once my oldest is home from school.  While most moms probably reach for a cup of coffee as a mid-afternoon pick me up, I , however, am not a coffee drinker, so I tend to reach for some chocolate!

Recently we had Shelley Loving, the found of The Food Shift, on an episode of our podcast called Food for Thought, and I asked Shelley something she would recommend for my sweet tooth.  She shared this super easy four ingredient recipe with us.  

I was a little hesitant to try it since I am not a big fan of dates.  One afternoon after school, my daughter helped me make this treat, and I loved it!

I hope you enjoy it too!
