Crazed Chocolate Insanity Part 2
The following recipe is uber simple, and produces the tastiest and most more-ish of the chocolates I made over Xmas (if you like fruit and nuts, that is. If you don't, then maybe not so tasty...)
This fabulous recipe for fruit and nut clusters comes from vegweb (titled there Super Duper Crunchy Chocolate Clusters) and was submitted by Libby Lyski.
Fabby Fruit and Nut Clusters
1 cup organic raw cashews, broken up
1 cup organic raw hazelnuts
1 cup organic dried muscatels
1 1/2 blocks of Lindt 70% cocoa chocolate
Melt the chocolate in a metal bowl over boiling water. Add the nuts and muscatels and stir vigourously until the chocolate and nuts and fruits are thoroughly mixed.
Use two spoons to drop clusters onto grease proof paper.
You can then put the clusters into the fridge to harden, but I tend to do a quick version of this by placing them in the freezer until the chocolate has hardened again (about 5 minutes, if that), and then putting them in the fridge to keep.
Easy as, and really really tasty!!
