Delicious Chocolate Nut/Fruit Clusters #Recipe

Hi! I hope you're having a wonderful holiday week! If you're looking for a super easy chocolate treat to give as a gift or enjoy yourself, give this chocolate recipe a try. You can add whatever you like to the chocolate mix. I've used almonds, walnuts, pecans, raisins, dried blueberries, dried cherries and coconut. I do use mini-size muffin pan liners because this is pure chocolate and it melts in your hand. 

1 cup chocolate chips. I prefer dark chocolate. 

2 tablespoons coconut oil

Put in a glass microwave bowl.

Microwave for 20 seconds, stop and stir. Continue another 15-20 seconds. Stir to melt chocolate chips. They will continue to melt as you stir. If necessary, heat for another 10 seconds. Caution: Don't overheat and scorch the chocolate.

Add nuts or fruit if desired and stir.

 You can pour this into a rectangular pan or dish. Or use a muffin pan with liners. 

 Whichever way you choose, put the pan in the freezer for an hour or so until the chocolate is firm. If you use a dish for your chocolate, you can cut the chocolate into pieces. You need to store the chocolate in the refrigerator in a plastic container until you are ready to eat because the chocolate will soften quickly. Best to pop it in your mouth right away.🙂 Betcha you can't eat just one!
