I love the combination of a sweet and salty snack!
Especially when hormones are running rampant and the two halves of my brain are at war trying to decide if they want to gorge themselves on a bag of potato chips or a box of Twinkies.
So I came up with a super simple snack that appeases both sweet and salty cravings.
That way you don't have to waste time opening two boxes/bags and can just get right to the gorging part!
Efficiency and deliciousness.
-Salted mixed nuts (about 1-1 1/2 cups) - I used the Kirkland brand from Costco
-Dark Chocolate (72% or higher cocoa content) - I used about 15 squares of the trader Joe's Pound plus bar
-Place a small piece of parchment paper on top of a plate
-Spread nuts onto the parchment paper in a single layer, keeping them close together
-Melt chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave unltil melted and smooth, stirring every 30 seconds
-Pour chocolate over nuts and use a spoon to spread evenly
-Put the plate in the freezer for about 5 minutes to set (or until the chocolate is no longer shiny)
-Remove hardened bark from parchment, break into pieces and gobble it up!
-Store leftovers in an airtight container
