Homemade Fruit & Nut Bars

Fruit and nut is my all time favorite chocolate bar.  Bar none.  I also LOVE chocolate.  I have been known to dream in chocolate from time to time.  Last night I had such a dream, that when I woke up this morning I knew what I needed to do... make Fruit & Nut bars!  And that's just what I did!

I have actually never made this recipe before, but thought the base of it would be a fudge and then just layer the flavors from there.  So here we go!

Fruit & Nut Bars.

what you need.

1-1/2 pkg. (12 squares) Semi-Sweet Chocolate, chopped
1 can (300 mL) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup craisins
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans                                 
1/2 cup coarsely chopped almonds
1/2 tsp. vanilla

make it.
Spray foil-lined 12-inch baking pan with cooking spray, set aside.
Place chocolate in medium saucepan. Add milk; cook on low heat 8 to 10 min. or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring frequently. 

Add remaining ingredients; mix well.

Spread immediately into prepared pan. 

Refrigerate 6 hours or until set. Store leftovers in tightly covered container in refrigerator.

These are super yummy!  And you feel sooooo less guilty about a little treat because they are super thin!  Make a whole batch and then share them with your friends...or hide them in the freezer for a yummy snack just for you. 

Have a great day!
