I’m pretty sure these could be considered a health food. Marshmallows and pretzels are low-fat. Chocolate has antioxidants. Peanut butter is a good source of protein. Mix it all together and it’s practically a superfood.
No? Not buying it?
Well, these are worth making anyway: quick, easy and a crowd pleaser.
