Snacking Chocolate

4/20/15


I recently discovered that 'snacking chocolate' is a thing that exists in this world.  Now tell me... what is a more brilliant than taking wholesome foods like nuts, seeds, pretzels and coconut, covering them in dark chocolate, sprinkling them with sea salt and proclaiming to the world, eat this snack and feel good about it!?  I'll tell you what's more brilliant... saving some money and making your own.  It's basically chocolate bark... but if you call it 'snacking chocolate' it's much more acceptable to eat at various times throughout the day, like for a pre-breakfast snack and a mid-morning snack and a pre-lunch snack and then a post-lunch snack and a mid-day snack and so forth...

It's super easy to make.  Just scatter whatever you want on parchment paper, in my case pumpkin seeds and broken-up pretzel pieces...    


Melt good quality dark chocolate in the microwave for 30-second intervals.  Pour over snacks using a rubber spatula to spread (it won't be perfect, but that's the beauty of snacking chocolate!), and immediately sprinkle with sea salt (if desired)...


Let harden on counter or in fridge, and then break apart.  Snack away!

What else can we preface with 'snacking'- snacking cake? snacking pizza? snacking wine?

Wow - that's so super easy. Easy enough that I can make it! Thanks for sharing! (I'm sure my five-year-old would like to help me make it, too!).

Have a great day!

I am scared of this. It reminds me of that Christmas bark, crack, I mean bark. When my life simmers down now I will make this. In the meantime, I too will preface everything with snacking. I like snacking wine. Maybe snacking margaritas? Or Snacking cheesy potatoes?
