Chocolate-Lace Lollipops with Dried Fruit & Nuts

This sweet delight is a classic combination of chocolate and dried fruit but in the form a pretty lollipop. The beautiful and unique chocolate bouquet for your Valentine!

To change things up a bit look for dried fruits that are a bit out of the ordinary, such as pineapple and mango. Having said that, these are delicious made with fat golden raisins or dried strawberries.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Makes: 10 lollipops.
Resting time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 oz. dark chocolate (70% cocoa), chopped
  • mixed dried fruit, such as raisins, cranberries, cherry, apples
  • chopped nuts, such as pistachios, coconuts
  • wood sticks

Instructions

1

On two or three sheets of parchment paper, draw ten 2 3/4-inch circles, and place the paper to the other side (you still can see the circles, right?).

2

Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, making sure the base of the bowl does not touch the water (this setup is called a "double boiler"). Allow the chocolate to melt, stirring occasionally, until it all melts. Remove the bowl from the heat and let it cool for 10 minutes.

3

Fit a piping bag with a small plain tip fill the bag with the chocolate.

4

Place a lollipop stick on each circle with one end of the stick at the very center of the circle. Using the circles as a guide, pipe overlapping lines of chocolate in swirls, making sure you stay inside the lines. Scatter dried fruit and nuts on the lace of chocolate. Pipe a little more of the chocolate on a top of the fruits and nuts so they are well attached. Allow setting for 30 minutes in a cool place before carefully detaching the chocolate lollipops from the paper.
