Crispy chocolate bars

Servings: 9-12 bars        Preparation time: 15 minutes        Difficulty: easy

Summer is slowly coming to an end. We can’t believe that we are starting to having colder temperatures here in Switzerland. We love summer, the heat, going to the lake, having BBQ’s with friends. But we also don’t mind cooler weather (okay, the winter here is way too long) but in general we love to have four different seasons.

Sure, when the weather is nice, the last thing we want is to stay inside in the kitchen, right? In addition some ingredients are melting faster when it’s hot or feel too heavy in the stomach. But with the slowly changing weather it’s time to wake up those sleeping beauties again. CHOCOLATE for instance.

These crispy chocolate bars with lots of nuts and dried soft apricots are an airy and light snack for the colder seasons. If you are craving some chocolate, nut and fruit combo, these crispy chocolate bars are perfect for you.  Enjoy!
