Hi, it’s Ginnie from Hello Little Home! I’m excited to be back and sharing a yummy holiday recipe, Chocolate Fruit and Nut Clusters.

My mom always bought big blocks of chocolate every holiday season. Then we’d spend our free time making all sorts of chocolate treats. It was fun and delicious!

This year, I decided to follow her lead. I picked up some dark chocolate and made these Chocolate Fruit and Nut Clusters. These chocolates are beautiful and taste even better than they look. Plus, they couldn’t be easier to make.

My favorite part about these chocolates may just be how customizable they are. I used a mixture of cashews, pistachios, dried cranberries, and candied ginger. Any combination of dried fruits and nuts would work though, so pick your favorites.

Choose your favorite kind of chocolate, too. Everything from sweet milk chocolate to rich dark chocolate will work. I didn’t want my clusters to be too sweet, so I used bittersweet chocolate.
