I put a small bowl over a pot of simmering water and poured 1 cup of chocolate chips in the bowl. Over a medium low heat melt the chocolate. Then I took dried apricots and dipped half and lay them on wax paper to cool. After dipping the apricots, I still had some chocolate left. I poured a handful of cashews into the chocolate and stirred. Next, using a spoon, scoop the nut mixture into mini muffin cups. Allow to cool until chocolate is hardened.
In the past, I have given these sweet treats as holiday gifts. They would also be nice as a quick dessert after a meal. Sometimes you just want a bit of sweetness, and not a whole dessert. Personally, they will be an indulgence over the next week or so, when I want something chocolate.
You can dip any dried fruit or nuts you choose. Adam loves chocolate covered cranberries. Also chocolate covered Spanish peanuts are wonderful. Let your imagination run wild with this one!
