Pretty moreish: Bitter chocolate granola crunch / Jason Lowe

Makes about 20-30

Though I've been making more elaborate dishes, it's still great to make some chocolate-based snacks, too. These are very easy to make and equally easy to munch on.

You may well want to double up the recipe as they are pretty moreish. And keep them away from the kids.

200g good-quality granola
1250g good-quality 70 per cent dark chocolate, broken into pieces

Put the chocolate in a clean, dry, heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring every so often until the chocolate has melted.

Remove the bowl from the pan, leave to cool for a few minutes, then stir in the granola and again leave to cool for a few minutes.

Meanwhile, line a tray with clingfilm or greaseproof paper. Using a teaspoon, drop spoonfuls of the mixture on to the tray a few centimetres apart, then leave to set in a cool place or in the fridge. Store in an airtight container until required.
