Greek Yogurt Bark

The above statement can’t be any more true.  It seems the last few weeks this has been the craziness of my life.  I started a long term substitute position and though it is only 4 hours a day, it seems to have thrown off my entire schedule.

It’s amazing how just a few hours of your day spent doing something else, can change the way a household functions and operates.  Phew!

This week is February break and on a rare occurrence for Western NY, it’s almost 70 degrees.  Of course it’s supposed to go back to snowing next week but since we didn’t get to go somewhere warm for this vacation, I will take the warmer weather.  Global warming at it’s finest!

As a quick treat for the boy’s to grab this week, I made some greek yogurt bark.  I saw a pin on Pinterest where some one had made it with white chocolate and I thought, I could totally do that with yogurt and freeze it for a quick, tasty afternoon treat!

So I did.  No oven required because it’s housing my laundry ;-).

Fast and easy.  The boys grab a piece and go.  I like to thaw mine just a bit but the choice is totally yours!  Any fruits, nuts, even some dark chocolate pieces would work.  This is what we had on hand.

Just mix plain Greek yogurt with some maple syrup or raw honey (for flavor) spread on a baking sheet lined with wax paper, sprinkle your toppings and freeze for a couple of hours!  See, so easy! Just make sure you don’t the yogurt really thin because the bark will not break apart in sections, it will crumble.  Still good if it does, just not the effect we are going for.

Let me know what creations you try!

Enjoy!
