With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we're literally getting ready to start our Christmas gift menu! Nothing wraps a holiday meal like a delicious dessert. A wonderful dessert always brings a smile and best luck! Having said that, we have the following dessert recipes for you to try this holiday season.
Fruit and Nut Skewers This recipe is from a book by Pamela Westland, Celebrating Christmas. It's a sweet candy-type dessert packed with healthy ingredients.
8 ounces white chocolate, broken into pieces 1/3 c sunflower seeds 1/3 c almond strips 1/3 c sesame seeds 1/3 c seedless raisins 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Direction Place chocolate chunks in a double boiler or in a heatproof bowl over a pot of boiling water. The water should not touch the bottom of the top pan or bowl. You can also use a microwave-proof container and place in the microwave on medium setting for three minutes. Stir the chocolate as it melts for a glossy finish and smooth texture. Add remaining ingredients, add chocolate and beat until well combined. Scoop the mixture into the carton with two teaspoons. Allow setting. The 24 clusters made with this recipe can be stored in an airtight container.
