Last two weeks of 2015 has been great! I took time to rest, eat good food, and do stuff… felt very relaxed after a very long time! I didn’t do much cooking during this period but made a few desserts 🙂 Hope you too had a great time during Christmas and New Year with your family and friends 🙂
Today I made these chocolate cereal bars and while I prepared these I told myself “I must share these!” These are super easy to make and hardly takes any time, plus if you are looking for something sweet yet not a calorie bomb, this is the stuff you are looking for! The recipe is quite flexible so even if you don’t have the exact ingredients, it should be fine.
Go ahead and try these, you will love it! 🙂
Preparation Time: 30 minutes (excluding the time required for the bars to set)
Makes: 12 chocolate cereal bars
Chocolate, dark couverture – 200 g
Chocolate Milk – 1/4 cup
Cereal – 100 g, I used unprocessed muesli for this recipe.
Orange flavor – 1 to 2 tsp
For the caramel:
Water – 2 to 3 tbsp
Sugar – 2 tbsp
Cling Film (optional)
Step 1: Heat the chocolate in microwave in bursts of 30 seconds until it has fully melted. Add the milk and mix well.
Step 2: Add the Cereal and orange flavor and mix well.
Step 3: Take a small tray and place the baking paper so that it covers the base and sides of the tray. Transfer the ingredients to the tray and spread it evenly. Cover the tray with the cling film (optional) and put it inside the fridge for some time until it sets.
Step 4: Once the chocolate has set, take it out and cut it into bars (you can cut it into shapes and sizes as per your preference). Place the bars into another plate or tray and keep aside.
Step 5: To make the caramel, take the water in a microwave friendly bowl. Add the sugar and mix well. Now heat it in the microwave in bursts of a minute and mix well until it gets thicker. Once the mixture has turned golden brown in color, take the bowl out and use a spoon to spread the caramel on the bars. Leave it to set and cool down for few minutes.
Step 6: Your delicious chocolate cereal bars are ready to eat! 🙂
A few tips:
- Create variation of these bars by using white chocolate.
- You can add different flavors like vanilla, mint etc.
- Add berries and nuts as you wish.
