Fruit n Nut Chocolate Clusters

The fact that these are easy to make is a bad thing. They are so good! I could totally see myself whipping up a batch every time I get a chocolate craving. But if you can limit yourself to just one they do make a nice little dessert that is better for you than the average chocolate.

  • 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Unsalted almonds
  • Unsalted walnuts
  • Dried Cherries
  • Dried Blueberries

1. Put the chocolate chips in a medium sized bowl. Microwave for 2-3 minutes, taking out to stir every 30 seconds or so. The chocolate should be smooth and glossy when ready. Do not over heat or the chocolate could seize.

2. Place a sheet of wax paper on a cookie sheet, and drop small spoonful’s of the melted chocolate onto it. You should have about 16 morsels. Then place the almonds, walnuts, cherries, and blueberries on top as desired.

3. Set in the fridge or freezer until ready to consume. Store in an air tight container with wax paper in between layers.
