IMG 1425 (1).jpg


3 cups dark chocolate chips

14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

1 Tbsp butter

1 tsp vanilla

1/3 cup dried cherries, lightly chopped (may use another fruit)

1/3 cup shelled pistachios, lightly chopped (almonds, walnuts, and cashews are also good)

Optional: ½ tsp sea salt


Line an 8 x 8 baking dish with aluminum foil.

Combine chocolate chips with condensed milk in a microwave safe bowl.

Melt chocolate mixture in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds. This should take 1 ½ to 2 minutes. (This can also be done in a double boiler.)

Stir in butter and vanilla, add cherries and nuts.

Spoon into prepared pan (mixture is thick) and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.

Sprinkle with sea salt if desired, cut into pieces and share with someone deserving!
