Chocolate Coated Chickpea Clusters

INGREDIENTS:
1 can garbanzos, drained & rinsed
1/2 C sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
12 oz. high quality dark chocolate
wax paper or parchment paper

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 450 F.
Sift sugar and cinnamon together in a large bowl.  Place garbanzos in the bowl with sugar/cinnamon and toss until beans  are coated. The moisture on the rinsed beans should absorb the mixture.  Spread garbanzos evenly on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake approximately 45 minutes, or until beans are crisp.
Melt chocolate in microwave or on stovetop double-boiler (medium-low heat).  Mix a handfull of chickpeas at a time in the chocolate.  Scoop out tablespoon-sized clusters and place on wax paper or parchment paper to dry.  Store in a cool, dry place.
