Chocolate Fruit & Nut Clusters












Dark chocolate offers stress-busting antioxidants, while cranberries may help fend off winter colds and fight stomach bugs.




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.


These are delicious and ideal as a sweet treat following your Christmas meal if you don’t want a heavy pudding. Or serve with tea / coffee later.
