Chocolate Cranberry Nut Candy #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

Today for #SundaySupper we had to make gifts from the kitchen.  I have been looking so forward to today’s posts.  I can’t wait to see what creative gifts everyone has come up with.  I think one of the best gifts you can give people are gifts from the kitchen.  Nothing like homemade goodies to share with friends and family.  For my gift to give I made Chocolate Cranberry Nut Candy.  Oh my gosh, amazing to eat!

These little chocolaty candies are sweet and savory and takes like 10 minutes to make total time. Makes for a quick gift in a pinch. The chocolate mixed with the salted, honey roasted peanuts is a combo to love. Plus you get a nice tart chew from the dried cranberries. I think this is a gift anyone who loves chocolate would like to receive. The only problem is actually giving them away. I think I ate 3 of them while taking the pictures, plus I’m thinking about them right now and I want one.

To make them I microwaved dark chocolate wafers and quickly mixed in my cranberries and nuts. With a cookie scoop, I just scooped them out and added to my pan to cool. This really couldn’t get more simple. I am serious, this took less than 10 minutes to make. It’s kind of scary knowing how simple they are to make.

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set a side.

  3. With a cookie scoop, scoop out candy and place on prepared baking sheet. Let cool completely.
Notes
I made my candies pretty big in size, but you can totally make them smaller.

Since I made my candies so big, they fit great in a standard size cupcake liner, but you can make them smaller in size, so you get more candies than 22. They would be pretty packed up in a white box or a pretty cookie tin or even a mason jar with a red ribbon around it.

I hope you have a great Sunday.

Toodles,

Jennifer

  13. They might be simple but they’re also totally beautiful.

  14. Goooood idea! I love these little nutty and sweet clusters, so I don’t know why I’ve never made them at home before (unless it’s to keep from eating them all at once during photographing sessions too–oops). Great share–have a wonderful week!

  15. These sound so good!!

  16. I absolutely love treats like this! So easy and yummy!

  17. I make my kids teachers gifts each year for the holiday, I’m adding this one to it!! Thanks for the inspiration!

  19. I love chocolate and cranberry together. I’m making these soon!

  20. The sweet and salty, crunchy and chewy combo sounds amazing!

  21. Oh my, I would be all over these, they look so delicious! And now that I’m thinking about it, I have all the ingredients in my pantry or fridge… Hmm… Might be a sign! 🙂
