Is it possible? As I was searching for less sugary and allergy free Easter treats, I was amazed at the extraordinary quantity of sugar. I wanted my Sundayschool class room and my children’s Easter Baskets to be healthy, yet fun. One of the things I kept thinking is…fruit is God’s candy. Why do we ignore it at Easter? That thought inspired the Fruit Salad Gospel (with a poem). I also thought I that Coconut Lamb Mint Pops would be a great substitute for candy bars. Here are a few options for your Easter celebration.
