Granola Georgia Pecan Grabbers
- Makes 16 1-inch-thick bars
- Prep time: 10 min., Cooking time: 5 min.
If you don’t have time to dip these bars in chocolate, junior chef Henry Chambers suggests adding some mini chocolate chips to the pecan granola mixture.
- 20 large marshmallows
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3 cups low fat granola
- 1 cup chopped Georgia pecans
- 3-oz. semi-sweet chocolate, melted (optional)
Melt butter in medium pot over low heat. Add marshmallows and heat, stirring occasionally, until melted. Remove from heat and stir in granola and pecans, mixing well.
Transfer mixture to lightly buttered 9" x 5" loaf pan. Press firmly and evenly into pan and set aside to cool.
Invert pan to remove “block” of granola. Cut lengthwise in half, then crosswise into 8 bars. Serve as is, or, if desired, insert extra-long toothpicks as handles and dip partway in chocolate.
