The Treats That Do The Trick
I love a good themed party, and Halloween is no exception. And a party calls for treats! I made my Death by Chocolate Cake a few years ago, and these Bloody Doughnuts made their appearance last year. Either way, your Halloween get together will not be the same without a few bags of M&M’s and Skittles.
This year around, I’m bringing out a Black M&M’s Nice Cream that is SO easy to make and with a secret ingredient that brings out the dark side…
I am talking about Activated Charcoal – the new trendy health food ingredient. Activated Charcoal has loads of health benefits: whitens teeth, improves gut health, toxin remover, and liver cleanser, purifies water and is used in skincare. Find it at your local health store.
The base of this Nice Cream is:
Whipped up in no time
Simply blend your frozen bananas, cocoa powder, activated charcoal powder, vanilla essence, and dairy-free milk. To add a bit of indulgence, top with crushed M&M’s of course! Not only can you use this recipe to create nice cream, but it can also be the base of a pretty impressive smoothie bowl.
Halloween isn’t Halloween without candy, so M&M’s and Skittles are running THE TREATS THAT DO THE TRICK in-store competition until the 4th of November 2018. You can stand a chance to win a share of R3 million in Ster-Kinekor vouchers to indulge in movie marathons – talk about a scarily good prize!
To enter, purchase any two packs of M&M’s or two packs of Skittles or one pack of each, dial *120*3836# and follow the prompts on the screen. The competition will run in all major retail stores nationwide.
