Decadent Chocolates with Dried Cherries and Nuts

Even though they taste decadent, every ingredient in these heavenly confections is good for us: dark chocolate, dried cherries, and nuts are all rich in antioxidants and/or healthy fat and vitamins. Plus the recipe is a cinch to make. May your New Year be utterly delicious!

INGREDIENTS
1 1/4 lb very good-quality bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
Vegetable oil, for greasing the pan
1 1/3 cup dried cherries, or cranberries, or raisins, or a combination
1 1/3 cup roasted, shelled pistachios, salted (or pecans, peanuts, walnuts, or a combination)

1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over simmering water, stirring occasionally, until smooth.

2. Line the bottom and sides of an 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving a 2-inch overhang. Brush foil lightly with vegetable oil.

3. Remove melted chocolate from the heat and stir in the cherries and nuts. Spread the mixture evenly in the prepared pan and chill in the fridge for an hour or so, until firm.

4. Using the foil overhang, lift out the chocolate mixture and place on a cutting board. Peel off the foil, and cut chocolate into rough cubes, about 1-inch square.

Brzmi bardzo smakowicie. Uwielbiam gorzką czekoladę, a połączenie z wiśniami i orzechami jest super.
