sparkle kitchen: nine naturally sweet treats

This round-up is all about naturally sweet treats. These treats use honey or dried fruit to sweeten them and are a perfect way to have sweets at Halloween that are delicious and healthy too. Best of all, they don't have to be relegated to Halloween — they are great anytime of the year when you might have lots of sugar to contend with.

Fruit Leathers

When I was a kid, this was my absolute favorite sweet treat my grandma would make. She would always have left over bananas and make banana fruit leathers. This recipe is for peach fruit leathers but feel free to try any fruit that's on sale or that you have from your own garden.
