Fun and yummy snack!

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.

The ingredients I used

melting chocolate

I like to use the double boiler method best, I do not trust a microwave to melt chocolate and nothing smells worse than burnt chocolate!

 

Ingredients

  • 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

Preparation

  • 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.
