Chocolate Brittle

This one went over really well with Salamander. Not so much with Potatey - he really is a food purist. As in, do not mix different foods and textures together. As in, make a dish that's based on one food, and one food only.

1 bag Enjoy Life GFCFSF chocolate chips
1/2 tsp safflower oil
1/2 cup organic blanched almonds
1/2 cup organic whole cranberries
1/2 cup organic Thompson raisins
1/2 cup organic red flame raisins
couple of tbs spoons of pignolia nuts
couple of tbs shelled organic pistachio nuts

Grease (I use Spectrum Cooking Spray) an 8 x 8 inch Pyrex glass dish.

Put almonds, cranberries, raisins, pignolia nuts and pistachio nuts in a bowl and mix

Pour chocolate chips in microwave safe container, and mix thoroughly with oil. Put in microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Continue to melt chocolate chips in microwave, stirring every 20 seconds.

Once chocolate chips are fully melted, stir in fruit/nut mixture. Spread chocolate mixture out in greased Pyrex glass dish into about 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick layer.

Place in fridge to allow mixture to set up.

Remove chocolate brittle from dish and break in small pieces.
