Sluttishly Sweet: No Bake Chocolate Ginger Muesli Bites

I go through cereal phases, I always start off with the best of intentions to eat a bowl of cereal every day for breakfast then a week later I'm back to coffee and toast. Last week I set off on a long car journey and my sister gave me a couple of cereal bars to munch on, they were surprisingly good but also I thought really easy to make. Unlike our gorgeous cranberry cereal bars you don't need to bake these so they are ready from start to munching in about 10 minutes flat.

My favourite cereal at the moment is Dorset Cereals Muesli, massive whole flakes, grains, fruits and nuts and no powdery bits meant that I only needed a binding agent and well, dark chocolate immediately game to mind . It isn't exactly the healthiest snack (in fact, it could be a contender for the Fred & Ginger theme of our next Just Desserts club) but a small piece fills you up and you get the initial sugar kick followed by a more sustainable energy boost from all the nuts and grains. I went for a mixture of 2 chocolates but you could use whatever you fancy, and if you're not a fan of ginger then just substitute the stem ginger syrup for honey and leave out the ginger pieces.

Chocolate Ginger Muesli Bites 
You will need:
  • 100g Green & Blacks Maya Gold chocolate
  • 100g Daim Bar Milka chocolate
  • 3 pieces stem ginger finely chopped
  • 1 tblsp stem ginger syrup
  • handful whole blanched almonds (or your favourite nut)
  • 175g Dorset Cereals Muesli
Make it!
  1. Break the chocolate into small pieces and melt, add the ginger pieces and syrup then stir in the cereal.
  2. Using your hands or silicon moulds, shape the mixture into the size and shapes you want then let it set for 5 minutes.

  1. I never eat cereal in the morning. I eat it when I'm watching films, as a sort of popcorn alternative.

    Or when I get back from the pub too late and the chippy was shut.

    1. I forget about cereal for months then buy a pack and go "This is amazing I why haven't I been eating this EVERY DAY?" then I eat loads of it and get sick of cereal for another few months.

  2. I flit between bran flakes (with raisins) and apricot wheats, which are my best thing ever. I then go through phases where I totally forget to have breakfast at all. I always have porridge oats in, but never milk so they usually end up being flapjacks.
