Dear Diary,

Halloween is officially around the corner, and here at SFG Diary, we could NOT be more excited!!!  I’m serious, the excitement is real, and while I’m loving pumpkin patches, haunted hayrides, costume shopping, and lots and lots of candy/treat tasting… the candy tasting has gotten a bit out of hand (I suffer from poor self-control.)  But I can’t help it!  I have a sweet tooth, and it’s rude to ignore the batch of pumpkin cookies and basket full of candy lingering at my office’s front desk, right?!  So with that said, I’m taking a stand with two of my favorite things– quest bars & pops.

This isn’t our first rodeo with quest bar cake pops, but we switched up the recipe by putting it in the holiday spirit!  And instead of using white chocolate, we’re using a healthier yogurt sauce… (inspired by those yogurt covered pretzels that I just have to have every time I have a long delay at the airport… these cake pops are delicious and adorable– and not so bad for you too!  The perfect amount of halloween sweetness, without the guilt!

Here’s what you do:

  • take your favorite quest bar (full of protein, few ingredients, low in carb, and organic to boot!) and cut it in half!– my favorite is cookie dough
  • mold the quest bar into a ghostly shape– it doesn’t have to be perfect– just think oval!
  • then place it on a popsicle stick and let it harden in the freezer (for at least 10 minutes– this makes it easier to coat)
  • Next, dunk it in the yogurt mixture!  Here’s what’s in it: 1 cup of greek yogurt (full of protein), 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon of agave, 1/4 cup of a mixture of stevia (no calorie natural sweetner) and powdered sugar… why a combination of the two?  I think powdered sugar tastes better than the stevia– but the stevia helps cut calories. This combination of sugar adds the perfect amount of thickness to the yogurt so that it’s ready to coat!
  • Once the pops are coated, place 2 mini-sized chocolate chips for the eyes, and 1 regular-size chocolate chip for the mouth…
  • Lastly, let sit in the freezer to harden– the longer the better!

And that’s it!!!!!  The PERFECTLY SWEET HALLOWEEN TREAT for the SFG!
