Today my kids and I made a really fun and easy after school snack! I found this recipe, Chocolate Granola Apple Wedges in the September 2011 issue of Cooking Light. After school today we all went to the grocery store and picked out our ingredients. I adapted the recipe and added a few more ingredients like chopped apricots, rainbow sprinkles, chopped pecans, chopped M&M’s and you could probably add even more. This was so simple that my 7 year old daughter helped out too.
- 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
- 1/3 cup low-fat granola without raisins Here I used chopped apricots, M&M’s, chopped pecans, rainbow sprinkles or coconut would be yummy too!
- 1 large Braeburn apple, cut into 16 wedges
- 1. Place chocolate in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute, stirring every 15 seconds, or until chocolate melts. Here I used the double boiler method.
- 2. Place granola in a shallow dish. Dip apple wedges, skin side up, in chocolate; allow excess chocolate to drip back into bowl. Dredge wedges in granola. Place wedges, chocolate side up, on a large plate. Refrigerate 5 minutes or until set.
