Gluten Free SemiSweet Fruity Chocolates

Posted Feb 03 2013 9:48am
Here's another candy making experiment of mine.  My first try at being a Chocolateur used white chocolate, mixed nuts and a handful of cranberries.  This one steers clear of nuts and focuses on being nice-n-fruity. All you need is a bag of semisweet chocolate chips and around 2 cups of chopped dried berries.  I used a combination of dried strawberries, blueberries, cherries and cranberries. 

These chocolates were much more popular than the white chocolate candies I made. I could tell how good they were by the way people tried to hoard them, or how they would force themselves to eat only a few a day in order to savor them:).  Regarding proportions... use about 1/2 cup more chocolate chips than fruity bits, and you can't go wrong.

Ingredients
  • 1 bag of semisweet chocolate chips (about 2-2/12 cups)
  • 2 cups of mixed dried berries
  • Cocoa powder (for dusting)
  • Non-stick baking sheet or wax-paper

  • Directions
  • Chop your dried berries up as fine as you're able.  These chocolates work best if filled with lots of tiny fruity bits, and not large chewy chunks.
  • Melt and stir your semisweet chocolate chips in a double boiler, or in 30-second microwave bursts, until  nice and creamy.
  • Add the chopped berries and stir until completely incorporated.
  • Let cool until the consistency of thick molasses. 
  • Spread some wax-paper out, or use a non-stick baking sheet, and spoon small globs of fruity-chocolate about 1-inch apart.  
  • Let the chocolate cool for a while before dusting your chocolates off with cocoa powder.
  • Once completely cool, dig in and smile big:)
