On the ninth day of Christmas YoungWifey shared with me, her cranberry almond bark recipe, chocolate amaretto cherries, pecan turtles, raspberry chocolate truffles, gingerbread fudge, peppermint bark, dark chocolate peanut butter balls, cracked glass candy, and her peanut butter fudge recipe…

This was something I was playing around with one year as I was mixing in food to the leftover chocolate I had melted. Then I found out that other people had made similar candies. This is what mine evolved into.

Ingredients: 8 square of white baking chocolate, 3 squares semisweet chocolate, 3/4 c. almonds, 3/4 c. dried cranberries, 2 tsp. almond flavoring

Directions: If almonds are whole, chop into smaller pieces. In a double boiler, melt white chocolate. Remove from heat, mix in almond flavoring and keep warm. Repeat with semisweet chocolate. Mix dried cranberries and almonds into white chocolate. Spread mixture onto a wax paper lined baking tray. Tap tray on counter to even out mixture. Drizzle semisweet chocolate overtop white chocolate. Use a spoon to swirl mixture. Tap tray on counter again to level mixture. Place in the refrigerator until hardened, break into pieces.
