Do you remember being little and begging your Mom to buy Monster cereals this time of year? I do and I love that every year my kids ask me to buy them. Seriously, even though I can’t eat them, I want to buy them since even smelling them brings back so many memories.
My kids and my husband, love the Monster cereals so much that I decided to mix them with something else they really love, my chocolate bark recipe.
I created Monster Cereals Chocolate Bark!
Monster Cereals Chocolate Bark
- 1 Box of Baker’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate
- Parchment paper
- 1 cookie sheet
- Monster Cereals – your choice
If you have a double boiler, I would suggest using it to melt the chocolate rather than the microwave – the chocolate is quick to scorch that way. I don’t have a double boiler, so I use a pot of water and a round glass baking dish that sits just above the water. Make sure the water is low, so it when you bring it to a boil it doesn’t sputter out into the chocolate mixture.
Bring the water to a boil and place the baking dish, add Baker’s chocolate and turn the heat to medium to start melting.
While the chocolate is melting, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Stir the chocolate to make sure it is smooth and silky, turn off the flame, then add in the Monster Cereal. Make sure all of the pieces are fully covered in chocolate.
Pour the mixture onto the cookie sheet and spread evenly. If you want a thicker bark, don’t spread as thin and vice versa. Sprinkle some cereal on top.
Place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator, and cool for about 30-40 minutes, or until set. You can also place them in the freezer for about 20 minutes if you want it faster.
You will then have a complete sheet of solid chocolate. Take out and break into pieces by hand and serve.
Super fun, and super easy to make!
