Dried Fruit & Nut Chocolate Drops

Ingredients:

 

  • 2 1/2 c. semisweet/ bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. crystallized ginger, shredded
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • 3/4 c. mixed nuts (e.g. walnuts, pistachios, almonds), chopped
  • 3/4 c. mixed dried fruits (e.g. cranberries, cherries, apricots), chopped
  • Coarse salt, fleur de sel or coarse Himalayan pink salt (optional)

 

Directions:

1. Lightly toast the nuts in a skillet or in a pre-heated oven (350 °F) for about 6-8 minutes, or until just fragrant. Cool them completely.

2. Place 2 cups chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl; heat for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, stirring at 30-second intervals. When the chocolate is almost melted, stir in the remaining 1/2 cup chocolate and gently stir until all the chocolate is melted.

3. Gently stir in the crystallized ginger and orange zest.

4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then drop melted chocolate mixture onto the sheet, one tablespoon at a time.

5. Quickly sprinkle chopped nuts and fruit over each chocolate drop, ensuring they stick to melted chocolate base. Sprinkle salt over each drop if desired.

6. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
