Chocolate Crunch

To whomever it was that thought of dipping a pretzel in chocolate: Thank you. This recipe takes things a bit further and introduces crunchy wheat cereal, pretzels and roasted almonds to a bittersweet chocolate coating. Genius!

1 cup Wheat Chex (or similar) cereal (2 ounces)
1 cup pretzel sticks broken in half (2 ounces)
1/4 cup salted roasted almonds (2 1/2 ounces)
3 tablespoons bittersweet chocolate chips, melted (see Tip)

1. Combine cereal, pretzels and almonds in a medium bowl. Drizzle with melted chocolate; stir to combine.
2. Spread the mixture on a wax paper-lined baking sheet and refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.

Yield: 4 servings, about 3/4 cup each

Recipe Tips & Notes
Tip: To melt chocolate: Microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium in 20-second intervals until melted, stirring after each interval. Or place in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.

It's like super-chocolate trail mix! I think raisins and dried cranberries would also go well with this to add a nice fruity flavour to the mix! :]
