Open House 2015 Cookie Recipes

Merry Mambo Munch

This was another great recipe that I found in a magazine.  It was just an add for “Enjoy Life Foods” products, but it caught my eye and I had to try it.  I love chocolate, like so many people, and healthy, good for you, dark chocolate is even better!  Here is the original recipe:

Makes approximately 1 sheet pan

INGREDIENTS:

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a large bowl, combine Seed & Fruit Mix and Crunchy Flax cereal.
  2. Melt the chocolate chips over a double boiler or in the microwave. Add oil into the chocolate.
  3. Pour melted chocolate over the Seed & Fruit Mix/Cereal combination and immediately spread thin on a parchment or lined baking sheet.
  4. Cool in the freezer or in the refrigerator.
  5. When completely cool and hard, break into pieces and serve immediately. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

I had a difficult time finding the Enjoy Life Foods Crunchy Flax with Chia cereal so I substituted this:

I also could not find the Enjoy Life Foods Mountain Mambo Seed and Fruit mix so I bought another seed and fruit mix that was around the same size that I needed and used that instead.  I had doubled the batch which meant I did not have quite enough of the cereal so I added some Perky’s Nutty Rice.

Which I just realized is similar to the product that they want you to use –

Basically, anything you decide to use that will add crunch, is going to be good.  You may want to make some to give to friends, but I would encourage you to make a double batch because once you taste it, you are going to want some for yourself.  Enjoy!
