Author Notes: This is an easy to make recipe that is very suitable to be made in bulk and be wrapped up as edible gift. It can be made with classic chocolate and nuts combination or chocolate with cranberries but you can also do better with some fancier ingredients like freeze dried fruits which I have used here. Freeze dried fruits are great as they are dry but still maintain its vibrant colour, and is very crispy with intense flavour of the fruit. So in this recipe, it gives the lively colour and contrast along with some added texture.
This recipe is also perfect to make with your children and share with the family. —Ai Pheng Y
