For those days when you need a little pick me up – especially in the afternoon on a rough day. rather than reaching for a candy bar, reach for your pick me ups. Delicious chocolate with a bit of fruit and nuts and some crunchiness to truly indulge all your cravings at once. The best part – a quick easy trip to your kitchen and voila you have a homemade and healthy treat!
All ingredients were on hand already. I usually use what is lingering around the house, be it cranberries, prunes, apricots or any other dried fruit I have on hand. I am not a raisin fan, but you can use those as well. The nuts I usually have a bunch on hand that I munch on here and there through the week.
