Looks like a real yummy dish!!

Carpathian Reading Snack

Submitted by: Tempe


1 pkg.   dark chocolate chunks

Dried sweetened red cranberries (Craisins)

Lightly salted peanuts


Mix equal portions into a lidded container and scoop out about a cup.  This is a good serving and is so delicious together.  For some reason, the chocolate doesn’t melt….maybe because of the dryness of the peanuts and cranberries.

For those of us who: love to snack and read, love the salty and sweet together and want to be healthy at the same time.  Enjoy!!!
