Dark Chocolate Trail Mix Clusters
(courtesy of Mena Spodobalski, owner and fitness trainer, Evoke Fitness in Reno. Makes about 8 clusters)
This snack is easy to make and great to have on hand for a pre-workout snack or after-school treat, too!
¼ cup Whole Foods Market’s Antioxidant Secret Trail Mix (or your own preferred type of trail mix)
3 tablespoons organic dark-chocolate chips
In microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips in microwave. Make sure not to overheat or they will burn. Microwave 20 seconds and stir. If they have not completely melted after stirring, microwave an additional 10 to 15 seconds. On piece of wax paper, make chocolate circles with spoon, about the size of a quarter (about 8). Place trail mix on top of chocolate drops and lightly press down into chocolate. Let chocolate set, around 40 to 60 minutes, or refrigerate for faster results. Now try to eat just one!
