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.
