Indulge in this yummy treat that is easy to make and wonderful to eat.

1 lb. bar of good quality dark chocolate, melted

A mix of nuts including cashews, pistachios and almonds ( about ¾-1 cup total)

Dried fruit, including apricots(chopped), raisins, and cherries ( about ¾-1 cup total)

Melt the chocolate, stirring until smooth.

Spread mixture on parchment paper in a large rectangular shape and allow to cool

Helpful hint: Use the microwave to melt chocolate, or use a double boiler (or a smaller pot set into a pot of slowly boiling water) to prevent the chocolate from burning. Stir often to keep the texture smooth.
