056 060 Easy Chocolate Trail Mix Bites          Printer-Friendly Recipe

From: Spoonful of Sugar
Makes about 1 dozen bites
Prep Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

1 cup of chocolate chips (I used dark & white)
Almonds and cashews
Dried fruit (such as cranberries, cherries, and blueberries)
Pretzels

Directions

Line a baking sheet with nonstick lining and set aside.

Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 15-second increments, stirring in between, until fully melted (usually takes a total of 45-60 seconds). Spoon out the chocolate into circles on prepared baking sheet. Immediately top with desired nuts, pretzels, and fruit.

Place sheet in freezer for 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden quickly (alternatively, you could pop the sheet into the fridge or leave at room temperature to harden, it will just take a little longer). Enjoy!
