Instructions Checklist
  • In a bowl, microwave the chocolate on high 1 minute. Let rest 30 seconds, then microwave for another minute. The chocolate should be melted by then, but if it isn’t, microwave in 30-second increments, stirring in between, until melted and smooth.

  • Arrange 12 tiny frilled paper cups on a plate. Pour about 2 tsp. melted chocolate into each cup. Before the chocolate sets, arrange the berries, nuts and mint leaves on top, mixing and matching in whatever combinations you prefer. Push down lightly to embed them in the chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate sets, 45 to 60 minutes.

  • Peel the paper cups off the hardened chocolate and arrange the treats on a dessert plate. Keep refrigerated until serving time.
