    KWB's Note:

    A very versatile and handy candy treat! Use a chocolate you enjoy because it is center stage in this recipe. Vary the dried fruits and nuts to reflect your personal taste.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 20

    Yield:

    1

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In the top of a double boiler or a metal bowl set over a saucepan of barely simmering water, melt the chocolate, stirring occasionally until smooth.
    2. 2
      While the chocolate is melting, line the bottom and sides of an 8-inch square baking pan with foil, leaving a 2-inch overhang. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the foil with vegetable oil.
    3. 3
      When the chocolate is melted, remove it from the heat, and stir in the fruit and nuts. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan, and spread it evenly with the back of a spoon or rubber spatula. Place the pan in the refrigerator, and chill for about an hour, or until the chocolate is firm. If it is too chilled you will have trouble cutting it.
    4. 4
      Use the foil overhang to lift the chilled chocolate mixture from the pan, and place it on a cutting board. Peel back the foil, and cut the chocolate into whatever size you desire.
    5. 5
      Note: These candies keep in the refrigerator, sealed in an airtight container with foil between the layers, for up to two weeks.

      Chocolate nut fruit heaven!!! I used macadamias and almonds, cranberries and sour cherries - absolutely wonderful. As I was sure I'd forget them in the fridge I spooned them into small paper muffin cases where I could let them harden completely. Now I have 12 beautiful big pralinés! Thanks for posting :) Made for Comfort Cafe January 2010.

      Oh Yummmm! This is super easy and Nirvana for the deep dark chocolate lover. It couldn't be any easier or adaptable to personal likes. I used a bittersweet that already had cherry pieces in it and added the raisins with pistachios only. By all means do use the salted nuts it gives the chocolate an added boost. I wasn't about to make the whole recipe, lol. I made just 6 pieces by dropping 6 tsps of the mix onto waxed paper. Made for Comfort Cafe, Jan 09.
