This is now my favorite recipe!! I used 2 dark chocolate bars, a mixture of tropical dried fruit, handful of raisins, slivered almonds, handful of cranberries and cinnamon. Below is the recipe, but I think this is the kind of recipe where you can alter it in any way. Add or remove any ingredients to suit your sweet tooth. Enjoy!
12 oz high-quality dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa)
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup dried tart cherries
1/2 cup dried mango, chopped
1/2 cup cashews, chopped
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp cayenne or chili powder (optional)
1/4 tsp ginger powder (optional)
Line a rimmed baking sheet with wax paper of lightly greased parchment paper.
Using a double boiler, melt chocolate until very smooth. Stir in half the dried fruit, cashews and spices.
Spread the chocolate mixture onto the baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining dried fruit.
Chill in refrigerator until firm, about 30 minutes.
Break into pieces of desired size.
