Servings 30 chocolates

Calories 59 kcal

Equipment

  • Chocolate silicone molds

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Chocolate chips semi-sweet, dark or bittersweet
  • ¼ cup Chopped nuts I have used cashews and almonds
  • 2 tablespoon raisins
  • 2 tablespoon Honey

Instructions

Melt the chocolate

  • You can melt the chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave.

  • In a microwave-safe bowl, add chocolate chips and stir every 20 seconds until the chocolate is melted completely.

  • To each cavity of silicone chocolate mold, based on size, add a teaspoon of melted chocolate and tap so that it spreads evenly.

  • Keep this mold in the freezer for 5 minutes.

Roast the nuts

  • Add chopped nuts like cashews and almonds in a non-stick pan and dry roast on medium-low flame until you get a nice aroma. (Toasted nuts enhance the flavor).

  • Add these toasted nuts to a bowl along with raisins and honey, and mix well.

Fill the chocolate molds

  • After 5 minutes, remove the chocolate mold from the freezer and fill each cavity with some fruit and nut mixture.

  • Fill the rest of the mold with the remaining melted chocolate and tap it so that it evenly spreads.

  • Keep this in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Remove the chocolates from the mold and store them in an airtight container.

Notes

  • Instead of cashews and almonds, you can use salted peanuts, hazelnuts, walnuts, pistachios, etc.
  • Raisins can be substituted with dried cranberries.
  • I have used Ghirardelli chocolate chips. Feel free to use any other similar good quality chocolate chips or compound for best results.
  • You can store the chocolate in an airtight container and keep it in a cool place or refrigerate it.
  • If you do not have a chocolate silicone mold, you can even use an ice cube tray to try this recipe.
  • The number of chocolates will vary based on the size of the molds.
