Easy chocolate bites are just the treat to make all season long, ideal for sharing with unexpected guests or indulging in by a cozy fire. Creamy white chocolate with dried cranberries and pistachios makes a festive touch; semisweet chocolate with sweet-tart dried cherries and roasted almonds is decadent enough for even the diehard chocoholic.

Easy Chocolate Bites

Better still, both bites are three-ingredient candies that take less than 15 minutes to make and taste infinitely better than store-bought (my kind of treat!). One tip – prep your toppings before you begin melting the chocolate so you can work quickly before the chocolate sets.

  1. Can i ask if you used regular choc chips or melting discs or bars? I’m planning to do a substantial number of them and want to eliminate any goofs from the start πŸ™‚ … also, once made, how long do you think they’d last still fresh? I’d like to make and then we’re driving crosscountry with them … still ok for a couple of days after Christmas? Thank you for the idea – I’m adding in dried pineapple/coconut to one as well.

    1. Hi Bonnie! I used regular chocolate chips. If you keep them cool and in an airtight container, they should last at least a week or so. Hope that helps, the pineapple/coconut combo sounds delicious! Merry Christmas! πŸ™‚

      1. Thank you so much! I might wait until Christmas Eve day to do to ensure they’ll last until our gathering. You’ve given me a fun idea. I appreciate the reply. Have bookmarked many of your recipes, including many maple ones. Looking forward to trying them. Merry Christmas!
