Nuts About You Chocolates

These are delicious.  I originally planned to use only nuts and no fruit, but somehow these little love hearts needed something tangy to balance the flavour.  So I added dried cranberries, and with their beautiful colour and flavour, I think they really finish them off.

Our sweet neighbour gave Beth and Dorothy some lovely vintage tins as a Christmas gift and they kindly let me use one of them for these Valentine’s chocolates.

You will need

200g milk chocolate

Unsalted pistachios

Blanched almonds


Dried cranberries

Heart shaped silicone cupcake cases


  •  Create a bain-marie by placing a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water
  • Break up the chocolate and place it in the glass bowl
  • Heat the chocolate and keep stirring it until it melts
  • Spoon a small amount of melted chocolate into each case.  This amount should be enough for twelve cases
  • Lay a pecan on top of each chocolate along with a couple of cranberries and some crushed pistachio and almond

  • Allow to set completely before turning out from the cases

These passed the yum test with my girls and I already know that Phill will love them because he’s a bit nutty!

Love Rachel ❤️
