Ingredients

  • 1 16 oz package Vanilla Candy Quick or vegan, or other white melting chocolate substitute such as "No Whey" brand
  • 4 boxes any variety of Made Good Foods Mini Granola Bites
  • 1 package mini edible candy eyeballs I use Wilton brand

Instructions

  1. Using a double boiler or microwave, melt the chocolate until stirred smooth. If using Candy Quick, heat for 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval. 

    Remove the mini granola bites from their package, and dip each one individually into the melted chocolate. 

    To dip the bites it is best to gently lay each bite in the chocolate rather than trying to roll it around. Then, using a fork, gently pick up chocolate and pour it over the bite until covered. Life the bite out of the bowl with a fork, and gently tap the fork on the edge of the bowl allowing the excess chocolate to fall between the prongs. Set the bite on wax paper covered cookie sheet, and use a second fork to slide the bite from the first fork onto the sheet. Immediately press the candy eye balls, two per monster, into the chocolate before it sets. You can play around and have some monsters with 1 eyes, or even 3! Repeat until all the bites are used. 

    Once you have dipped all your bites, they may set at room temperature if using Candy Quick, but you can place in the fridge for 15-20 minutes to help them set. Store at room temperature. 

Recipe Notes

To help create a better consistency with an alternate chocolate, add 1 tsp oil to the chocolate during melting process.
