Dark Chocolate Granola Bark

This dark chocolate granola bark has granola, nuts, coconut and dried cherries mixed inside and sprinkled on top for a crunchy dessert or snack bite you’ll love.

Last August I came home from Food Blog Forum in Asheville, NC with a block of chocolate about two times the size of my head. Seriously, it had to have been like 2-3 pounds at least. Over the past 8 months, I’ve done a bit of damage to that bad boy when desperate nights have left me otherwise dessert-less but there was still enough left to take up about half a shelf in my pantry when this idea struck.

Dark Chocolate Granola Bark
