Create an incredibly tasty energy mix with nuts, dried fruit and chocolate. All you need to do is melt bittersweet chocolate and stir in peanuts, pistachios, cashews and dried tart cherries.



  • 2/3 cup Dried Montmorency Tart Cherries
  • 1/3 cup Roasted & Salted Shell Peanuts
  • 1/3 cup Roasted & Salted Shelled Pistachios
  • 1/3 cup Raw Cashews
  • 10 oz Bittersweet Chocolate


1 Line a large baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.
2 Add the dried tart cherries, peanuts, pistachios, and cashews to a medium mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
3 Gently melt the chopped chocolate (about 70% cacao) in a double boiler (or heatproof bowl placed over simmering water).
4 Pour the melted chocolate over the cherry-nut mixture and stir until evenly combined.
5 Drop by spoonful (about 2 rounded tablespoons each) into clusters onto the lined baking sheet, making 12 clusters.
6 Chill in the refrigerator until firm. Store in the refrigerator or at room temperature. Box up as desired for gifting.
