I absolutely love these. They were so simple to make. I didn't have any raisins though so I doubled up on the nuts ( which by the way I used Honey Roasted Peanuts). That's all I had handy... but ya know they came out great. They tasted awesome!!!! I would defnitely make these again and again!!!! A+ to the person that submitted this recipe :[]

These turned out really well, and couldn't be any easier to make. The chocolate didn't pool on the bottom, which happens to me a lot with this type of candy. They look very professional and pretty. And taste great! The only problem is that they melt awfully fast in your hand. I'm sure a more experienced candy maker would know how to resolve that.



I have made these with craisins, dried blueberries and chopped dried cherries. Have never been disappointed!
