Black forest bites

Ingredients

1/2 c walnuts

1/2 c pecans

1/2 c dried cherries

1/4 cocoa nibs

1/3 unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tbsp honey

1 tsp vanilla

72% dark chocolate chips or bar for topping

crystallized ginger chopped for topping OR  dried cherries chopped

Makes 15 to 20 bites. No baking. This treat tastes like you got it at a confection shop. It is rich, flavorful, and satisfying.

Put the walnuts, pecans, and cherries in a food processor and blend until moist. Add vanilla, honey and cocoa nibs and blend well.

You can put the mixture in molds, roll out (between two sheets of parchment paper) and cut into shapes, or roll a flattened tbsp size ball. Melt 72% dark chocolate in double boiler and drizzle on top of bites and put a small chunk of ginger on top.
