Santa's Energy Booster
But honestly, how many cookies can Santa eat before he starts to get full? The grinch might have it right!
So instead of the cookie, here is a twist on a treat that is both Joyful and Triumphant, which I call "Santa's Eneegy Boosters"
Step 1: Buy These ingredients :
Old Fashion Rolled Oats
Dried FRuit (cranberries are a great one)
Trail Mix or unsalted nuts
Dark Chocolate of 60% or higher)
Step 2 : Melt the Chocolate :
Put water into a pan about a 1/2 inch so bowl will sit.
Use glass bowl (or it gets too hot or will melt the bowl) over medium low heat (setting 3ish usually works if you have a stove like me)
Patiently stir as is melts, you will see tiny bubbles in the water is a good way to judge a great temperature.
You should not have to add any butter, ect to the chocolate. It will melt on its own, just stir
If the chocolate does not turn smooth, but clumpy, then the chocolate is burnt. You cannot fix it...... toss and start over.
Step 3 : Pour and Add
Take the Choclate out of the water.
Add your rolled oats, I start with about a 2/3 a cup and add around 1 cup. I like more texture to it.
I put parchment paper down onto a baking tray, less clean up.
Now this step is up to you, either pour the chocolate / oat mix onto the paper and put the nuts / dried fruit on top or you can mix these right into the mix if you want and then pour.
