Instructions

  1. Cover a large baking sheet with parchment or wax paper; set aside.
  2. Melt chocolate chips in double boiler over slightly simmering water.
  3. Combine the dried fruits and nuts in a small bowl.
  4. Add to melted chocolate and stir to completely coat all ingredients.
  5. Using a measuring tablespoon, dip leveled clusters onto covered baking sheet about 1-inch apart. They will look uneven and shaggy.
  6. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until clusters are hardened and set. Store clusters in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator.
  7. Serve cold or at room temperature. (The clusters taste most flavorful at room temperature.)

Tips & Notes

Create your own double-boiler by using a small saucepan or heat-proof bowl over a bigger saucepan that contains the simmering water.
