Chocolate Thistles

Chocolate Thistles

My friend Maggie sent this recipe to me and we tried it last weekend. 
These dessert treats were delicious, and so easy to make.

You start by chopping up a chocolate bar into tiny pieces and then melting it in a double boiler.

Or, do like I did and use a microwaveable bowl, stirring the chocolate every 30 seconds and returning it to the microwave.  This took me 1.5 minutes.

Then you mix in All-Bran cereal (the twig shaped version) and 1/2 cup of chopped nuts or chopped dried fruit - whatever you like.  I used raw almonds that I chopped up.

Mound the mixture onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze for 10 minutes.
I made mine large, using a 1/4 c measuring cup to scoop and mound. 
Maggie's original recipe calls for a Tbsp amount.

Freeze and voila!

Definitely kid-approved delicious-ness!
