Ingredients

  • 1 cup toasted almonds, coarsely chopped

In a medium bowl, toss together the almonds and the cherries. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 1-2 minutes in a microwave safe bowl. Stir the chocolate and reheat if needed.

Stir the fruit-nut mixture into the chocolate. Spoon out heaping tablespoon-sized clusters of the chocolate mixture onto the baking sheet about 1-inch apart. Put them in the refrigerator to set for 15 minutes. Store and serve at room temperature.
