Use your Instant Pot as a Double Boiler to make Snickerdoodle Chocolate Nut Bark.
I'm definitely not a chocolatier but this recipe was certainly intriguing when I saw it. I'd never thought of using my Instant Pot as a double boiler to melt chocolate for making sweets.
One batch of this Snickerdoodle Chocolate But Bark is the perfect amount for a Christmas tin to give as a gift to friends and neighbors.
You'll be suprised at how easy it is to make. All you need at home is your Instant Pot, a 3-quart stainless steel bowl, and some parchment paper to get started. From the store, some mixed nuts, dairy-free chocolate chips, package of Snickerdoodle Energy+, and Ghee (or Coconut Oil).
Snickerdoodle Energy+ is an energy booster that I mix into coffee and warm plant-based milk with a sprinkling of cinnamon on top. Energy+ comes in different flavors and has been super helpful for me in increasing motivation, brain cognition, energy, and I don't get any jitters or a sugar crash like a lot of energy drinks. The flavor is so yummy, that I wanted to test how it tasted in this recipe and it didn't disappoint. Snickerdoodle is a limited edition offering during the holidays. Normally, I get Pomegranate Lime in my Happy Juice delivery every month.

In December of 2021, I embarked on an Instant Pot Journey because I wanted to eat cleaner food and change some unhealthy eating habits. My goal was to use my Instant Pot at least once a day and try new foods and ingredients that my picky palatte would normally refuse. I have tried more than 140 new recipes in 2022. I primarily cooked from three Instant Loss cookbooks authored by Brittany Williams. I learned of this recipe from her online site. She has so many great dessert recipes that you can make with your Instant Pot. Check them out!
