Treat Yourself!

Thanks to Nicole Christy, PE4life Kansas City Regional Project Manager, for providing this tasty recipe!

I call them Dark Chocolate Haystacks and they are so simple and healthy!

Just two ingredients - dark chocolate chips (lower in sugar and high in antioxidants) and plain Shredded Wheat (nothing but wheat- loads of fiber).

It literally took more time for me to type this recipe than it took to make the treats!

Dark Chocolate Haystacks

- 1 cup of Dark Chocolate Chips
- 2 large Shredded Wheat biscuits

1. Crumble the shredded wheat into a bowl, make sure to get most of the clumps out.

2. Melt the dark chocolate chips in the microwave in a small dish (about 45 seconds then stir, then back in for another 45 seconds tends to do it)

3. Pour the melted chocolate into the shredded wheat bowl with a rubber spatula and mix until all shredded wheat is covered in chocolate.

4. Spoon out onto parchment/wax paper

5. Let cool and solidify at room temp

6. Enjoy!!
