How to Make Chocolate Granola Bark?

My friends over at The Bircher Bar  recently sent me some absolutely delicious granola. Their Energy Mix is paleo, gluten free and simply delicious!! I used it for my Chocolate Covered Pears recipe and was amazed at how tasty it is! There is REAL macadamia nuts in it.

The combination of the crunchy texture of the granola pairs with the bitterness of the dark chocolate to give you a chocolate fix at snack time that also has health benefits!

I don’t know about you, but if I have a block of sweet chocolate in the fridge, I find it disappears FAST!! Dark chocolate lasts much longer around here and I think the fact that the dark chocolate is not as sweet means that you have your fix and are satisfied without overdoing it!

Recipes using melted chocolate

Chocolate Bark is a quite and easy recipe to make which looks like it takes a lot more effort than it actually does.

These recipes are all fun and yet simple at the same time:

If you are after a chocolate dessert or snack which looks great and is easy to prepare, then chocolate bark is it!

Can I make Vegan Chocolate Bark?

To make this recipe entirely VEGAN, you would need to make one change to the ingredients list and buy vegan chocolate (most local grocery stores sell it) instead of the regular dark chocolate. It is that easy!

Dessert for a dinner party

We all know that desserts are fun and can be the life of the party, but that doesn’t mean that you need to spend hours preparing them. I LOVE making desserts. But I also love making desserts that are quick and easy.

You will love these options as they are time friendly!

Ingredients

Chocolate Granola Bark

  • 125 grams dark chocolate melts or bits
  • 1/3 cup energy mix granola (From The Bircher Bar)

Instructions

Chocolate Granola Bark Method

  • Line a baking tray with baking paper
  • Add your melts to a microwave safe container. Heat for 1 minute on high. Take out and stir. Repeat heating in 3 x 30 second segments, stiring in between.
  • Spoon chocolate onto baking tray using a soup spoon 
  • Sprinkle granola over melted chocolate and then place tray in the fridge 
  • Bark will be set in 30 minutes 

Notes

  • Be careful to not overheat the chocolate which happens so easily! If you stir the chocolate as it melts you will see that it is ready just as the last melts or chips loose their shape and become liquid

Melting Chocolate to make chocolate bark

Melting chocolate if fun! It is therapeutic! It makes you enjoy the moment and find happiness in an easy kitchen task. I know I have felt myself sigh with joy when I stir my spoon around a pot of melted chocolate and I guarantee you will too!

There is much fun to be had in one’s kitchen with a bowl of melted chocolate and a spoon!

I know my hubby would love these as he is a big granola and dark chocolate fan! I prefer milk chocolate, do you think this would be just as tasty with milk chocolate?
