Double Chocolate Almond Cherry Crisps

Somedays you just need a chocolate fix. These bite-sized crisps will satisfy your chocolate craving without wrecking your diet. Each crisp is only 62 calories and packed with two different types of chocolate, almonds, and dried cherries.

I can’t wait to give these a try using different combinations of chocolate, fruit and nuts! These bite sized crisps would make the perfect Valentines Day treat for your sweetie, that is if they last that long! ;)

 

Double Chocolate Almond Cherry Crisps

Yield: 36 crisps

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups rice cereal (I used Kashi 7 Whole Grain Cereals Puffs)
  • 3/4 cup dried cherries
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cherry flavoring
  • Directions:

    Cover a large baking sheet with wax paper.
    in a medium glass bowl place semisweet and white chocolate chips; microwave on high 45 seconds. Stir, and microwave an additional 45 seconds or until almost melted. Stir until smooth. Add cereal and remaining ingredients; stir quickly to combine. Drop mixture by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet; chill 1 hour or until firm.

      I think I’m being tortured every time I come by here. As usual these look very delicious. I love the combination of the cherry and almond flavors – and let’s not forget the chocolate. All so yummilicious!

      What a great recipe! You have a beautiful blog…looking forward to reading your earlier posts. I am trying to be more of a “successful” baker – my daughter is in a Pastry Art program in New Orleans…so, maybe I won’t have to!
