  • 12 oz (336 g) vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 Tablespoons (30mL/28 g) Holy Crap cereal
  • 1 cup (250mL) chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup (120 mL) dried tart cherries
  • 1/4 cup (60mL) raw unsalted pumpkin seeds
  • Pinch of sea salt


  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips on low heat. Stir the melted chocolate for a couple of minutes until it becomes glossy and starts to cool, then pour it onto the baking sheet in a square shape of even thickness.
  3. Sprinkle evenly with Holy Crap cereal, walnuts, cherries, pumpkin seeds and a pinch of sea salt. Allow to cool completely.
  4. Remove and discard the parchment paper, then break the solid chocolate bark into 20 even pieces and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.

TIP: If you don’t have a double boiler, set a stainless steel bowl inside a metal colander and place the colander over a saucepan of water on low heat, making sure the bottom of the colander doesn’t touch the water.
