yogurt covered raisins recipe?

Hi! I'd like to make my own yogurt-covered raisins. I googled recipes and found one, but it is not as healthy as I'd like, and asks for a lot of butter. Does anyone have suggestions for how to make a yogurt sauce that could be used for yogurt-covered raisins, craisins, dates, nuts, etc? Thank you so much!

      Thank you! I didn't even think to look up yogurt pretzels, so silly of me. This is really helpful, thank you!

    2. "Healthy yogurt-covered raisins" is an oxymoron. That "yogurt' is primarily fat, sugar and a binder (and a teeny bit of yogurt). It's a lovely dessert that makes people feel like they're eating something healthy. Enjoy them, but don't pretend they're particularly good for you (or any better for you than chocolate covered raisins, or battered-deep-fried bananas, etc, etc, etc...

        Thanks Indirect Heat, I am learning that from this recipe search. It's funny how it takes something like this for you to realize that what you've been eating really isn't that healthy! I won't pretend anymore, promise.

      2. (you could try using a Stevia / Truvia substitute, low fat yogurt, and a butter sub... maybe.

        ) (also possible to make substitutes)
