Just because you want to maintain a healthy diet for yourself or your family does not mean you need to cut back on the festivities. You can make your own festively healthy treats at home and not miss out on any of the fun! This is also a great chance to get young kids involved in the kitchen, and a chance for family bonding.

These visually appealing balls are a healthified version of classic Bounty bars; perfectly coconutty with a dark chocolate topping. Because they are so rich, we recommend portion control with these! Find the recipe here.
