Summer brings heat and being one month out from baby boy’s arrival I am baking in more ways than one. With temperatures reaching the 100’s last week I got my first set of cankles. I took off my shoes and you could see lines in my feet where they used to be! Not pretty. My Dr. told me with temps like these you’ve got to stay inside and drink A LOT of water. Sounds like a lot of fun for me and the kiddos to enjoy the rest of the summer huh. Long days by the lake may be out for this soon to pop mama, but that doesn’t mean we can’t bring the fun to us!
My kiddos are obsessed with frozen treats, but Mom desires something a little more than just colored sugar and water in a tube. I got to try out the new STARBURST™ Brand Sorbet Bars which round out Mars’ ice cream portfolio, with delights including DOVEBAR®, TWIX® and SNICKERS® Ice Cream Bars. STARBURST™ Sorbet Bars give you the taste of a STARBURST™ strawberry fruit chew in a cold and refreshingly tasty bar with, get this, only 70 calories. Seriously! Now that is a number I can celebrate! I am the one who always hoards the strawberry Starbursts so I was thrilled to try the new arctic version of this candy favorite.
I am happy to report they taste and pretty much look just like the candies on a stick. If you like the strawberry Starbursts, you’ll love these. They have a great light texture too. So being the experimenter that I am and while staging the bars for a photo with the berries I got to thinking about berries and my cravings for chocolate and chocolate covered berries. The joys of a pregnant woman’s mind. Then, I got to remembering this recipe for two ingredient freezing chocolate shell and well you can imagine where it went from there.
Mind you I did not even get to finish this one because my three year old stole it out of my hand. No biggie, there were three more in the box in the freezer. I now have the perfect frozen treat to satisfy fruity or chocolate cravings and it’s as simple as opening the freezer door. It’s making life in this oven world that much more bearable. Bring on the scorchers. I have my handheld fan and strawberry sorbet bars!
