Dark Chocolate Brittle with Quinoa

This would have been a low sugar dessert had I not added the white chocolate chips, but I had a 1/4 cup left and the Pope just declared that wasting food is like stealing from the poor so I felt guilty. This is very versatile- add whatever you like.


  • 6oz dark chocolate chips
  • handful dried cranberries
  • 4 tbsp quinoa
  • handful peanuts, chopped
  • handful white chocolate chips

Melt chocolate over double boiler, stirring frequently.  Meanwhile, roast quinoa in a dry frying pan, shaking frequently, and keeping a close eye to make sure they do not burn.  When chocolate is melted, spread over a waxpaper on a baking sheet.  Sprinkle remaining ingredients over chocolate, and place in freezer until hard, about 10 minutes.
