Chocolate Fruit & Nut Clusters

These are delicious and nutritious, ideal as a sweet treat.

Dark chocolate offers stress-busting antioxidants, while pecans are rich in zinc, good fats, and fibre.

100g dark chocolate (e.g. Green & Blacks or any good quality chocolate 70% cocoa solids or above)

1 tsp maple syrup (optional)

20g dried cranberries or dried cherries

25g ready to eat apricots

40g pecan nuts coarsely chopped

40g flaked almonds

1. Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl set in shallow water over a low heat until melted. Alternatively melt it in the microwave - heat it on medium high for about 1 minute to start with. Remove from the microwave and stir. Repeat heating at shorter intervals, 15 to 20 seconds, stirring in between, until the chocolate is completely melted and has a smooth consistency.

2. Stir in the maple syrup if using.

3. Stir in the cranberries, pecans and almonds and coat thoroughly in chocolate.

4. Immediately drop by level teaspoonful onto a wax paper-lined baking sheet spoon or spoon into 10-12 cake cases.

5. Chill in the fridge until chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.

Store in the fridge.
