“These delicious snacks make wonderful gifts, and although they look and taste like they came from an expensive chocolate shop, they couldn't be more guilt-free. The dried fruit and nuts are heart-healthy and full of fiber. Bet you can't eat just one!” Alina Niemi - Honolulu, Hawaii

I wanted to give it 5 stars when I sent my review but it didn't work...so there it is!

I would definitely make this recipe again and again. Not only was it so easy, you can add any kind of nuts or dried fruit that you like. What a perfect gift for someone, and so good just for yourself!! A keeper.

These were vary easy to make and very good to eat. They did not last long around our house.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 15, 2012

These were very easy and good. I used dates instead of cranberries, almonds instead of sunflower kernels, and walnuts for half of the cashews (and cherries, not blueberries). That's what I had on-hand (strangely enough, I had pepitas). These would work well with most any combination of nuts, seeds, and dried fruits. I got 40 servings.
