These are "heart-healthy" sweets for your sweetie. As you make them, visualize your sweetie's health and happiness.
Melt the dark chocolate in a double-boiler (or microwave). Stir in other ingredients and mix until coated. Spoon onto wax paper and let sit until hardened.
They can also be made with milk or semisweet chocolate, dried cherries, other types of nuts. Mix and match and enjoy!
