OK, sorry for the delay of my post in response to Amy's Post, but I finally shopped and made this delicious chocolate treat! I loved it and so did some of my classmates. Now the roommates...I can't say the same for. Brittany & Karen weren't overly excited about the millet chocolate, comparing it to a rice cake covered in chocolate...eh!
I loved it though! I would also like to try it with almonds or peanuts too.
OK, planning for my Student Entree Station next week...the first time I get to make whatever I want in school. Wish me luck.
If a recipe calls for chocolate, I'm a fan! Bittersweet chocolate + puffed millet + dried currants + sunflower seeds. Now this is what I call a healthy Rice Krispy treat! I couldn't find puffed millet at Whole Foods so instead I went with Kashi Cereal 7 Whole Grain Puffs. This blend included puffed wheat, rye, barley, buckwheat, sesame seeds, oats, and rice. I love that I walk into the store and that day find out what I will be adding into my recipe; I had to ask where I could find the currants. So currants are much smaller than raisins and have a tart flavor.
I snacked on these throughout the week and thought they satisfied my come home from work and eat a piece of chocolate craving. I tried to eat the leftover Kashi cereal but could not finish the entire bowl. I guess I'll need to melt more chocolate! -amy
