step 1
Cover a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.
step 1 Cover a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.
step 2
Thoroughly rinse the Red Quinoa (4 Tbsp) to remove the saponin (bitter taste) by adding uncooked quinoa to bowl, fill with clean water and soak for a few minutes. Use a wire whisk to move the quinoa around in the water, then strain the quinoa in a fine mesh sieve and rinse with fresh water.

step 3
Add wet quinoa to saute pan and cook on stove top over medium low heat, using a whisk or spoon to move the quinoa around in the pan.
step 4
Once it gets hot, the water will be absorbed and the quinoa will start to pop, this means it's drying out. Keep moving it around with the whisk until the grains of quinoa start to brown. This took about 5-6 minutes.
step 5
When it's sufficiently done, remove from the pan and place in a bowl to cool.
step 6
While toasted quinoa cools, melt Dark Chocolate Chips (1 1/2 cups) and Coconut Oil (2 tsp) in double boiler if you have one, or melt in a small pot on low stirring constantly and watching to make sure chocolate does not burn.

step 8
Pour chocolate mixture onto prepared wax covered pan and spread into thin layer.
step 9
Add Almonds (4 Tbsp), Cashew Nuts (4 Tbsp), Dried Cranberries (4 Tbsp), and Peanut Butter Chips (2 Tbsp) (they will likely melt due to the hot chocolate), press down lightly to mix toppings into chocolate, then put in freezer for 15-20 minutes or until chocolate has fully hardened.
step 10
