Cottonwood Cellars


Recipe - Chocolate Candies for Mother's Day
Giradelli's 60% Cocoa Melting Chocolate - 1  10 oz. package
Square Pretzels, roasted Almonds (remove skins), Walnut halves, Pecan halves,
Raisins and/or dried Cranberries.
Slowly heat chocolate in a double boiler or a Babycakes Chocolatier.  Prepare almonds by pouring boiling water over raw almonds.  Allow to cool a bit then remove skins.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees, place almonds on cookie sheet and bake until golden brown (about 15 min.).
Line cookie sheet(s) with tin foil.  Dip pretzels in melted chocolate and place on cookie sheet, dip 2 nuts or fruit in chocolate and place on top of pretzel.  Continue until cookie sheet is full then place into refrigerator for 1 hour. 
This is fun to do with mom or grandma on Mother's Day.  Give her a glass of 2016 Cottonwood Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon or Cottonwood Cellars Tawny Merlot to have with the chocolate.  Yummy!
