Dark Chocolate Fruit and Nut Cups
Candy, candy, candy!!!
Today we are making our own candy. It only takes 3 ingredients too. Just some dark chocolate and dried fruits and nuts of your choice!
My husband and I have recently discovered the wonderfulness that is just eating a handful of plain chocolate chips straight from the bag for dessert. I mean, obviously we still love actually using them in cookies and other goodies, but for a quick sweet tooth fix, they certainly do the job!
When it comes to chocolate and candy, I’m all about texture. I love nuts in my candy, my husband is the exact opposite, but I love the combination of sweet and salty. Sometimes I will eat chocolate chips with handful of nuts too, so why not just melt them all together?! And for me, I’m a dark chocolate girl all the way. I prefer the richer taste and that it’s not overly sweet.
Here’s what I love about these: 1. They take like 10 minutes to make, and 2. There’s no rules with these. Got a particular favorite nut? Add it! Have a favorite dried fruit? Add it! You really can’t go wrong here. I added pistachios and a mix of dried fruits. You don’t need to add any extra ingredients! I do highly recommend using good quality chocolate here, trust me when I say it does make a difference!
