Dark chocolate candy made right – so you can eat it and keep that New Year's resolution too!
It's a new year, and you're ready to be a new you. But who wants to live without chocolate? Not us. Which is why we've conjured a homemade version of the new superfood chocolate snaps.
Each bite is full of gorgeous, nutrient-packed nuts and cherries, and gets a happy bit of crunch from honey-kissed Fiber One cereal. These deliciously simple chocolate snaps are so good, you'll be delighted to be on a "diet."
You gotta love any chocolate dessert that starts with four basic ingredients and is ready in five minutes.
Start by melting the dark chocolate chips in the microwave. Melt them in 30 second intervals because you don’t want the chocolate to actually get too hot, just warm enough to melt and get soft enough to stir.
When it's melted and smooth, stir in a little more than half of the pistachios and cherries and all of the Fiber One cereal.
Spread the chocolate on a parchment-lined baking sheet until very thin. You want the bark to be really thin in order to make the chocolate "snaps" feel like you're eating a lot with only just a smidgen of chocolate in every bite.
Sprinkle the top of the bark with the remaining cherries and pistachios. Give a little sprinkling of sea salt right up top.
Once the chocolate bark is hardened, give it a good snap here and there, breaking the chocolate into pieces.
Eat immediately or store in an airtight container until you're ready to nibble on a yummy piece of chocolate that gives you a pop of nutrition and a whole lotta yum!
