Breakfast on the go

It's Valentine's Day and you want to make your special someone breakfast in bed, but they are already gone when you get up.  What do you do?  I suppose you could get up at some crazy hour to accomplish your task but I have a simpler and way yummier idea.  How about a breakfast in bed on the go cereal bark?  Yes, you heard right cereal in chocolate.  Really?  Could life get any better?  I first got this idea from but they used fresh fruit and I wasn't hip on that.  There would be no real shelf life if fresh fruit was involved so I though of dried fruit and this cereal bark was born.

What you need:
Good dipping chocolate white or brown
Dried fruit
Breakfast cereal
Chopped nuts, optional

Melt the chocolate and spread out on a piece of wax paper.  You want to keep it thick enough to hold your fruit and cereal, but thin enough so it isn't over powering the taste.  Sprinkle with desired toppings.
(I used dried cherries, white chocolate and chocolate rice krispies for mine.)
Once cool and hardened break into pieces and package it up for giving or just enjoying yourself.

Packaged and ready to give
