White chocolate clusters

  • Print

Day 15 of the Free Press's 21 Days of Holiday Cookies features White chocolate clusters with pistachios and golden raisins. We will be publishing one cookie recipe every day -- Monday to Saturday -- till Christmas.

Winnipeg's Mildred Giesbrecht offers a recipe for White Chocolate Clusters that is quick, easy and very, very rich.

White chocolate clusters with pistachios and golden raisins

227 g (8 oz) white chocolate, chopped

100 g (about 3/4 cup) shelled pistachios, lightly toasted and chopped

53 g (about 1/3 cup) golden raisins

20 ml (4 tsp) candied fennel seeds (optional)

Line baking sheets with wax paper. Melt chocolate in top of double boiler set over simmering water (bowl should not touch water), stirring frequently until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in nuts and raisins. Drop about 15 ml (1 tbsp) of mixture from a small spoon onto prepared baking sheets. Sprinkle with candied fennel seeds (or any kind of decorative topping). Refrigerate until clusters are firm, about 1 hour. Store in airtight container in fridge for up to 2 weeks. Makes about 24.

 

Tester's notes: The candied fennel seeds -- which can be found at some Asian specialty stores -- would add a nice liquoricey flavour, but any decorative sprinkle will work. If you can't find unsalted pistachio nuts, use any nut you have on hand -- I ended up tossing in macadamias.
