Granola Delux Recipe

I grew up eating Muesli, a Swiss-German cereal that combines rolled oats, dried fruit, nuts and seeds.  When I moved to America, I first tasted granola, which is essentially muesli with honey or sugar added to give it a great texture and crunch.  Texture is one of the components of a dish or recipe that I value most, so I immediately took to this American treat.  I give the granola an elegant twist with Mexican chocolate, which is made from dark chocolate, with cinnamon and sugar mixed in.
