When making Apple Pie Chex Mix you will need almond bark. I find it easiest to use a big knife and to coarsely chop the chocolate. I also love to use my Instant Pot as a double broiler. This is where you have a heat source from below, and keep the chocolate away from excess liquid but the heat will melt the chocolate, to a rich and smooth consistency.
Instant Pot Hack:
Just add water to the Instant Pot. About 6+ cups. It doesn’t really matter exactly. You need enough too boil and heat a bowl resting above. The bowl should be larger than the opening of the Instant Pot insert liner pot. Set to Manual and let the heat do the magic.
You will want to stay right with it and watch out that you don’t burn yourself on the steam. i’s HOT!
