Chocolate-Covered Cereal

Recipe

This is an easy-to-make, kid-friendly treat, especially in the summer when no cook wants to heat up the kitchen. I first made this with cornflakes, but have since used many other types of non-sugar-coated cereals, like Cheerios and Rice Krispies. This can even be a great, slightly indulgent breakfast treat, for kids and adults alike.

Yield: Makes about 6 dozen

Ingredients

  • 4 cups very crisp cornflakes or other non-sugar-coated flaked cereal
  • 1 pound bittersweet chocolate, tempered

Directions

Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.

Place the cereal in a large bowl. Pour about half of the chocolate over the cereal and, using a rubber spatula, toss the cereal around to coat evenly. The chocolate will begin to set. When the first coating has set, pour in the remaining chocolate and again toss to coat evenly.

Working quickly while the chocolate is still pliable, scoop up small mounds of the the cereal and place them on the prepared baking sheets. Set aside for about 30 minutes, or until hardened completely. If your kitchen is very hot, you can place the baking sheets in the refrigerator for no more than 10 minutes to speed the setting.

Layer the cereal clusters, separated by sheets of waxed paper, in an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.

    We have an epidemic of childhood obesity in this country, and someone thinks this "recipe" is a good idea? Really? Let's start with Cheerios, Corn Flakes, Rice Crispies. Empty calories, all. Shouldn't Cookstr editors pay more attention to what is posted he? I certainly think so.

    Hey, this recipe is awesome, but as a college student on a budget, I CAN'T AFFORD THE GODDAMN CHOCOLATE!
