These small sweets are so easy to make and they're perfect for impatient people who have a sweet tooth. Smooth dark chocolate pairs wonderfully with crunchy nuts and chewy dried fruit. These also make a great homemade gift, but you might want to double the batch — one for you, and one for everyone else.
