These little sweet treats are great for kids' lunches, on-the-go snacking or a healthy dessert at the end of the day. No matter what you need them for, they're sure to get eaten. Or if you can't eat them quickly enough, toss them in a large, sealed bag, and place them in the freezer to take out and enjoy as required.
