My kids have a routine. They get home from school, grab a book and run to the kitchen for a little afternoon snack. While they usually select good-for-you snacks, occasionally I like to surprise them with something a little sweet. When I can create something that compliments the book they are currently reading, they are over the moon. So when Iyla started reading Sanity & Tallulah I knew I had to come up with a space-inspired snack. Space Bark was so yummy, I had to share it!
I don’t know about you, but we gravitate toward the salty/sweet craze. So imagine sea salt peanuts, chocolate and little candy stars coming together for a treat that is almost too good for this galaxy. The combination is absolutely out of this world and so easy to make! If you or your loved ones have a peanut allergy, no problem, just substitute the peanuts for other fun salty snacks like pretzels or potato chips! The possibilities are endless.

Let’s Talk About This Book!
Sanity & Tallulah by Molly Brooks, is a funny and smart science fiction graphic novel about best friends Sanity and Tallulah. The girls must find their furry, adorable, and totally illegal science experiment when she escapes in the space station they call home.
Sanity Jones and Tallulah Vega are best friends on Wilnick, the dilapidated space station they call home at the end of the galaxy. So naturally, when gifted scientist Sanity uses her lab skills and energy allowance to create a definitely-illegal-but-impossibly-cute three-headed kitten, she has to show Tallulah. But Princess, Sparkle, Destroyer of Worlds is a bit of a handful, and it isn’t long before the kitten escapes to wreak havoc on the space station. The girls will have to turn Wilnick upside down to find her, but not before causing the whole place to evacuate! Can they save their home before it’s too late?
