These Chocolate lovers’ delights are a delicious mixture of nuts and dried fruits.

To add some tang to these scrumptious treats, we have added some homemade orange marmalade. Recipe also includes steps to make homemade orange marmalade though you can also use store bought semi-sweet orange marmalade.

You can make these dry fruit balls with almost any combination of dry fruits. We have used almonds and pistachios.

In the spirit of thanksgiving, you can also use Cranberries and chopped Pecans in these little treats.
