I’ll admit. This is not entirely whole food friendly. But I can’t resist the dried fruit and nuts with chocolate!
These chocolate cups look beyond incredible. Chocolate and cherries are one of my favorite combinations. I love the sweetness of chocolate, and the chewy tartness of the cherries together. Add in some of those delicious, toasted almonds and it gives it a wonderful salty crunchiness. It’s pretty much the perfect dessert on the go.
The one benefit of melting these candies in the slow cooker is you don’t have to worry about sitting over it and stirring it constantly. If you are careful to check that it’s staying on a low temperature, it will melt the chocolate gently and perfectly and make scooping up these into their cups easy and and worth it.
