White Chocolate with nuts and dried fruit

Very quick! Very easy! Very little mess!


Your microwave

1 bag of good white chocolate - i think they are usually about 12 ounces?

1/2 cup toasted and chopped walnuts

handful dried cranberries - chopped

handful dried apricots - chopped

(I have been told I have rather small hands - so I think a handful might be about a 1/4 cup - maybe a little less - and I apologize for forgetting to measure out the quantity...again!)


Toast and chop the walnuts first so they have time to cool - clean baking sheet - oven at 350 - around 7 minutes - give or take a minute depending on your oven. On another clean baking sheet lay out a large piece of parchment paper.  Set aside.  In a microwave safe bowl put all the chocolate in and heat at high in 30 second increments - until all is melted. You will have to stir in between each microwave session. When the chocolate is ready spread out on the baking sheet covered with the parchment paper - spread out to about the size of a standard sheet of printer paper and somewhere between an 1/8 to a 1/4 inch high - i suppose about the size of a thin pancake. Sprinkle all the walnuts evenly across the top - then the dried apricots - then the dried cranberries. Put in fridge for at least 1 hour before breaking into pieces and consuming!  Enjoy!
