With a variety of different flavors that will tickle any picky palate, these fruit cocktail bars begin with a plain base of regular crackers as the perfect foil to the explosion of tastes that will follow from the other ingredients: first, the mixture of all-purpose cream, melted milk chocolate and coffee powder that will create a lovely, rich mocha sweetness that will be a complement to the chunks of fruit underneath. Chill these bars to help them set and make them easy to cut, and top them with additional sprinkles or chocolate bits if you prefer, but you may find that this recipe is quick and easy to make and delicious just the way it is. The fact that it’s packed full of fruit and can get your kids to eat up a ready source of Vitamin C is definitely a bonus to this indulgent yet light recipe.
