Crunchy salted caramel peanut hedgehog slice

All we can say is WOW. Thank you to 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge member Krystal Brewer for sending us this decadent dessert made with healthier ingredients.

It’s crunchy from the puffed rice, sweet and sticky from the dates, and super moorish from the peanut butter and dark chocolate. It’s a winner!

Making your own healthy options for desserts is a great way to stay on track with your healthy eating plan.
