The Help Yourself Cookbook for Kids by Ruby Roth is a vegan cookbook for kids that has simple recipes for drinks, small snacks and small desserts. I made the Choco Balls with the optional ingredients and since we didn't have any almond butter, we used peanut butter instead. I had the Choco Balls in the freezer for about eight minutes. They tasted just like chocolate and I hope to make lots more of these recipes.
