Eons ago I read in Gourmet magazine about a swanky chocolatier in New York City who made, among other things (like tall, smooth-sided peanut butter cups the size and shape of a shot glass), chocolate covered Corn Flakes. The image of them stuck. And so one night when we were up late playing Blokus and needing something nibbly/crunchy/chocolatey to set out on the table, I melted a (big) handful of chopped chocolate, poured it over a bowl of Corn Flakes and tossed it like a salad. Then spread the mixture out on a parchment-lined sheet and let it cool.
You can try to shape it into clumps, or let it lie as it will and serve it like a bowl of crisp, flaky caramel corn, without the caramel. Turns out, there’s no need to turn on the oven to feed a chocolate craving.
