Cooking Light JANUARY 2012

  • Yield: Serves 16


  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • 1/3 cup dried cherries, chopped
  • 1 ounce small salted pretzel sticks, broken into 1/4-inch pieces (about 2/3 cup)
  • 1 (12-ounce) package premium white chocolate chips


1. Place almonds in a skillet over high heat. Cook 2 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Combine almonds, cherries, and pretzels in a bowl. Set aside half of mixture.

2. Place chocolate in a 1-quart glass measure. Microwave at HIGH 1 1/2 minutes or until chocolate melts, stirring every 30 seconds. Add chocolate to bowl with pretzel mixture; stir well. Spread chocolate mixture evenly into a 12 x 7-inch rectangle on a jelly-roll pan lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle remaining pretzel mixture evenly over chocolate, pressing lightly to adhere. Freeze 10 minutes. Break into 16 pieces.
