Homemade Chocolate Candies

Standard

I made these for my family who recently stayed with us. I wanted something small but special that was homemade and had a gourmet quality to them. I put a few in clear gift bags and left them on their pillows as a welcome gift.

You can use any chocolate, nuts or dried fruits you like… The combinations are endless so enjoy!
I used dark and white chocolate chips, melted.
Nuts & seeds: cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds, pecans
Dried fruit: golden raisins, dried cherries, dried cranberries
Waxed paper

Follow directions on the package to melt the chocolate. Spoon and swirl onto wax paper until they are about 1-2″ in diameter. Then pick your dried fruit and nut combinations and place them on the chocolate. Let set at room temperature or in the fridge if you need sooner. Once set you can package them in gift boxes or clear goodie bags tied with ribbon. Or, just enjoy!
