  • 1 cup each of dried cranberries & candied orange peel


  1. Line baking sheet with parchment, waxed paper, or use a silicone baking sheet. Set aside
  2. Melt chocolate in a small saucepan over a pan with 1" water simmering on low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth, then remove from heat
