Dark Chocolate Covered Granola

by Sarah on November 11, 2013 · 9 comments

Over here in The Smart Kitchen, ” baking” has come to mean “just cover everything in melted dark chocolate.”IMG_8030 (1024x683)

I’m quite obviously OK with that.IMG_8037 (1024x683)

And when you think about it, covering granola in chocolate gives you everything you could ever want in one, tasty handful.IMG_8059 (1024x683)

[Except maybe peanut butter?]IMG_8046 (1024x683)

Chocolate covered almonds or walnuts or pecans…plus chocolate covered dried fruit. [I'm partial to the raisins myself.]IMG_8057 (1024x683)

It takes less than 30 minutes to turn into a giant slab of dark chocolate granola bark–IMG_8083 (1024x683)

–which you can break up into reasonable sized chunks for snacking.IMG_8097 (1024x683)

(And use the leftover crumblies for sprinkling!)IMG_8085 (1024x683)

Just add chocoalte is my kind of baking! You could probably fold that into some Nutty Butter for a kick ass pancake topping. Not that I’m plotting for December’s trip or anything…

I admit I skimmed this post – too much yumminess that I can’t eat this week. But I read the recipe and I love how simple this is. Sounds like something to add to my post-comp eating list. :)

Nice one Sarah! You know that chocolate calls to me – and it even knows my first name!

Dark Chocolate over (or in) granola is easily the best, especially when I eat that granola at breakfast. Chocolate in the morning? why not!
