“This is such an easy recipe for a great tasting candy. I originally saw it in the Quick Cooking magazine. I rarely make less than a double recipe and they are always eaten up. These are also great to give away at holiday time or bring to a party. Experiment with flavored chocolates and fruit and nut combinations for something different. Cook time is refrigerator time.”

  1. Melt chocolate chips in microwave for about 2 minutes.
  2. Chips will not appear melted.
  3. However, stir them to distribute the heat and get them melted.
  4. Add nuts and craisins, stirring until well coated.
  5. Drop teaspoonfuls onto a wax-paper lined cookie sheet.
  6. Place into refrigerator for about 1 hour.
  7. Note: if doubling the recipe, microwave time does not double.
