Chocolate Snack Blocks
If you kids like the fruit gelatin snacks, they'll love these chocolate snacks.
3 envelopes unflavored gelatin
3/4 cup cold water
1 cup boiling water
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 cups (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate mini chips
In a blender, sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water and let stand for 5
Add the boiling water and sugar, cover and blend on low speed
until the gelatin is completely dissolved, about 2 minutes.
Continue to blend, gradually adding small amounts of the
chocolate chips until the chips are melted and the mixture is smooth.
Pour into an 8- or 9-inch square pan. Refrigerate until firm
and cut into 1-inch squares or shapes with cookie cutters.
Makes about 6 dozen squares.
