Oh yes… if only scratch and taste computer screens existed.
This is most definitely a holiday treat, but with a few redeeming qualities, including chia seeds. I feel like the Frank’s Red Hot Sauce lady when it comes to chia seeds because I seriously put that sh*t on everything!
Vulgarity aside, this white chocolate chia crunch bark is crispy, sweet and oh so addicting.
I don’t have a double boiler or the supplies necessary to make one, so I melted my chocolate in a pot over low heat while stirring often. It worked just fine.
I will say that having a spatula licker at the ready is a necessary component to the recipe though.
If you don’t have one of those, I know a toddler who would be eager to volunteer.
Once you set the mixture in the fridge for a quick 30 minutes, it’s ready to devour. Have containers ready to fill and giveaway though, because it’s truly addicting.
Of course, you could always just do what I do and tell yourself it’s totally good for you because it has chia seeds in it. I’m cool with that.Print
