Granola Bark Holiday Treat
Updated: Nov 1, 2019
Granola Bark is insanely easy to make. It’s made with dark chocolate and the granola adds the perfect amount of crunch. This is the perfect holiday dessert and is an easy gift for your friends and family!
300g quality chopped dark chocolate
1 cup Macadamia Muesli (mixture of 3/4c toasted nuts and seeds & 1/4 dried fruit)
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
1 tbsp cream (optional)
Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second increments, stirring after each one. Don’t overdo it. The chocolate is done when it’s about 90% melted—keep stirring off the heat and the pieces should completely dissolve. (Alternately, you can use melt it in a heat-proof bowl set over a saucepan of gently simmering water.)
Mix in the cream
Cover a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a silicone or rubber spatula to spread chocolate evenly over the center area of the baking sheet—aim for about ¼″ thickness (it won’t reach the edges).
Sprinkle the MUESLI mix over the chocolate.
Add salt if using and sprinkle it over the chocolate.
Lightly use your palms to press the toppings into the chocolate.
If you’re in a hurry, place the pan on a flat surface in the refrigerator to harden for about 15 minutes. If you’re not, let the chocolate cool at room temperature for 2 to 4 hours, until completely hardened.
Once the chocolate is completely hardened, use your hands to break it into about 25 pieces. Serve immediately, or cover and store at room temperature for up to 1 week.
