This two ingredient "recipe" is really more of a creative idea. Do you love trail mix and want to take it up a notch? Turn your trail mix into Dark Chocolate Trail Mix Bites!
To make these Trail Mix Bites, I used Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers and Trader Joe's More Than a Mouthful Trek Mix. This trek mix consists of dried cranberries, dark chocolate, sea salt and turbinado sugar almonds, pumpkin seeds and chocolate flavored pretzels. Another favorite trail mix of mine is the Kirkland (Costco Brand) Trek Mix with choclate chips, chia cinnamon granola clusters, almonds, cranberries, pumpkin seeds and roasted salted cashews. Use any desired combination of trail mix and chocolate (milk, dark or white) to make your perfect midday sweet and salty snack!
DARK CHOCOLATE TRAIL MIX BITES
- Dark chocolate melting wafers
- Trail mix
- Melt chocolate chips for 30 seconds in the microwave and stir. Microwave for additional 10-15 second intervals until melted. Careful not to burn the chocolate!
- Dollop a heaping teaspoon of melted chocolate onto a piece of wax paper. The best trick is to start by dabbing the wax paper in the center and spiraling your spoon outward. Repeat until you have used the desired amount of chocolate.
- Immediately top with a variety of trail mix pieces and let chocolate set.
