cherry nut clusters

well, valentine’s week is over now and i am still feeling the love. 
here is a great recipe that can be adapted to a variety of occasions depending on the choices made for the clusters.  for valentines day, i chose dried cherries and nuts.

melt approximately 12 ounces of ghirardelli chococlate in a double boiler.  stir in your choice of nuts and dried fruit.  i used about 1 cup of peanuts and 1 cup of chopped pecans with 1/2 cup of dried cherries.

scoop out the clusters with a cookie scoop and allow to harden on waxed paper.  remove and place in decorative paper cups.  store in a covered container in a cool dry place.
