Fruit & Nut Chocolate Drop Candy

I have been seeing so many “Christmas Countdowns” on social media and it seems everywhere I look. It got me to thinking about Christmas baking and all the fun treats I like to make for gifting. I made a bark similar to this candy a while back and yesterday I thought I would make Chris a treat (He LOVES Fruit & Nut chocolate bars) and make a batch of this candy.  As with the bar and most of the fudge recipes I make, this is very quick and easy to make using condensed milk and the microwave!

These are the ingredients I used to make the candy.

I added the condensed milk, corn syrup and chocolate chips into a large microwave safe bowl and on medium high heat I microwaved it until the chocolate had melted and the mixture was smooth.

I added the nuts, raisins and coconut….

And mixed until fully combined.

I dropped the mixture by the tablespoonful, onto parchment paper lined baking sheets.

And put the pans in the fridge for about an hour to chill and set.

A whole plate of fruit and nut chocolate goodness!!!
