Granola Chocolate Bark

Now that my granola jar is full, I got it in my head to make some chocolate bark because, well, who needs a reason to make chocolate bark.  Just because I can.  I picked up my favorite BAR of chocolate while at Trader Joe's.  It weighs over a pound so is perfect for this endeavor.  

It comes divided into little squares so it's really easy to cut up and toss into a bowl and into the microwave.  I know the recipe on this blog says to do this in a double boiler, but just ignore that.  I sometimes don't listen to myself.  Just put it into the microwave for 30 second increments, stirring a bunch of times until it's all melted.   Then just stir in 3/4 cup of your favorite granola.

Spread your melty granola chocolate out onto a parchment lined sheet pan about 1/4-inch thick.

And then sprinkle it with another 1/4 cup of granola and a good sprinkling of flaked sea salt.  Then pop it into the fridge for an hour or two.  When it's good and hard, you can break it into shards and store it in a sealed container in the fridge and always have something sweet to serve if folks pop in or you just need to quell the sweet tooth beasties.
