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)
