Ok something magical happened, you guys. Puffed quinoa has come into my life. My life will never be the same and from this point forward I’ll be putting puffed quinoa in ALL THE THINGS. 

Homemade Crunch Bars

Liiike homemade granola. And Maybe these peanut butter bars. And maybe just use it as cereal? I’m really into it. They remind me of rice krispies from when I was a kid. They are so crispity crunchity I’m in looove.

So, one day I was messing around because I did just get amazing new chocolate molds, after all. And I felt like I really wasn’t doing the chocolate molds justice because the only thing I had made in them were plain chocolate bars that my kids decorated with sprinkles, craisins, and some other random nonsense they insisted upon.

So, after they had their fun with some chocolate bar creations, I made my own. And man, it was amazing. So amazing, in fact, that I have since made it about 3 times. 

I love having chocolate stored in my fridge for my late night sweet tooth. I just break off a square (or four) and go along my merry way. 

Homemade Crunch Bars

So, let’s get to it and make some deliciously crispy homemade crunch bars. 

Melt your chocolate. I put mine in the microwave for two minutes, stirring after one minute. 

Then, stir in the cashew butter and puffed quinoa. Puffed quinoa is a new addition to my life and I have been LOVINGGG it!!

Place the chocolate molds on a cutting board or a baking sheet. Pour the chocolate into the chocolate molds and evenly spread it out. I banged the cutting board a few times in an attempt to get any bubbles out of the chocolate. I don’t know if it worked, but I really don’t mind too much if there’s bubbles in my chocolate. It still tastes amazing!!

Pop it in the fridge for a couple hours. Then, push it out to remove it from the molds and eat! Store in the fridge ๐Ÿ™‚
