Fruit & Nut Chocolate / Chocolate with Dried Fruit and Nuts – Valentine Special Recipes / Gift Ideas


I must have posted this yesterday, since this is a real treat for valentines day..I made this to give it for my sweet heart, but unluckily it got over that say itself..Thanks for my sisters….Hmm... I should make it some other day for him..


This chocolate is so rich, Since it has all nuts available on earth..You can add apricots, dates, walnuts and anything which floats your boat..you can use milk chocolate or any chocolate you like..I used a double boiler for this, but you could melt the chocolate in microwave too..I hope you will try this soon and present it for your loved ones..


 
Try it and let me know..


Ingrediants:

Dark Chocolate – 350 gms
Cashews – 50 gms / ½ cup

  27. HII ARTI, GREAT JOB!!!
    WAT SUBSTITUTE WOULD U RECOMMEND FOR TUTI FUITY?
    AND HOW LONG DOES IT HAVE TO COOK WITH ALL THE CHOCOLATE AND BADAMS ETC MIXED UP?

    ReplyDelete
  28. @shravanthiyou can use any glaced fruits in stead of tutti fruity or simply leave that off. You don't need to cook it after you have added the nut mixture. Melt the chocolate take it off the heat and add in the nuts and mix well.

  29. Very nice and easy to make, If you do not have time to make this thing then you can also order dried fruit gifts from internet.

  34. Hi Aarti.luks wonderful but plz suggest for toasted nuts and also goe to keep needs ctispy after adding yo chocolates.

    ReplyDelete
  35. @SonaU can toast the nuts in a preheated oven at 180 degree C for 10 mins till it is toasted, then cool it down and add to the chocolate. You can toast them in a oil less pan on a low heat as well
