Most requested Christmas treat
I have been making this for a few years. I don't add the coconut and I toast the pecans. My family loves these. I take these as a gift when I go to events, potlucks, etc., during the holidays. The recipe is always requested by the recipient and my lady's group requests that I make these for our cookie exchange every year. The dried fruit and type of nut, as well as the type of chocolate can me changed as well. It only takes a few minutes to prepare a batch. My go to recipe for a quick and really delicious treat.
I make these with just almonds (I don't use the coconut) and they are truly delicious. Try pouring the melted candy into foil candy cups - very fancy and VERY fast and easy.
You won't know how really good it is until you try it.
