Chocolate, Dried Fruit and Nut Clusters P Yield: 24
This is a delicious confection that requires almost no cooking and can be made in minutes. I recommend making a double batch. They disappear in seconds!
1 cup chopped dried fruit: apricots, raisins, dates, figs
1 cup chopped nuts: pecans, walnuts, almonds
10 ounces non-dairy semi sweet chocolate
2 teaspoons liqueur of your choice
Microwave or double boiler
- Mix dried fruit and nuts together in a mixing bowl.
- Melt chocolate in microwave or in a double boiler. Add liqueur ad stir well.
- Add chopped fruit and nuts to chocolate. Drop by tablespoonful onto waxed paper. If you’re making these in a relatively cool room (or using nuts from the freezer), the clusters will harden immediately. You might have to refrigerate them if your kitchen is very warm.
