Insta-Worthy Jeweled Granola Bark

Do you remember how, before cellphones, doting grandmothers would carry around mini photo albums known as brag books, which they'd whip out at every opportunity, and foist on their helpless victims? I fear I'm just as bad with sharing snaps of both my dog - the world's most indulged mutt - and my favorite, culinary creations. It's just so much fun to inspire others and, when I create a dish I really love, I can't wait to let others in on my not-so-secret secret. This spectacular Jeweled Granola Bark is my latest obsession. I've made it 4 times in the last week alone - including today when I tested out a vegan version - and have happily passed on the recipe to as many friends and family members as I possibly could. I'm now gladly sharing it with you. It's incredibly easy to make, amazingly impressive, and tastes even better than it looks. A winning combination and a wonderful photo opportunity. Be sure to scroll down for my 'how to' photo collage and see 'notes' for essential hints.
