White Chocolate Suckers {Christmas Treats}

I have lots of cranberries & pistachios left over from some shortbread cookies I made {more on those later}. I was watching Ina's Christmas special Saturday evening & decided to try the suckers she made. She used dried cherries & cashews, but any mix of dried fruit & nuts would work. I also smashed up a few candy canes to make some peppermint topped treats. They could not be easier to took me less than 15 minutes to get these done. Wrapped up individually, they make great Christmas treats for neighbors, co-workers, etc.

White Chocolate Suckers
2 bags Ghiradelli white chocolate chips
dried cranberries (Craisins)
crushed candy canes

Place 1 1/2 bags of white chocolate chips in microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 30 second intervals, stirring until melted. Add remaining chocolate chips & stir until combined. Drop by tablespoon full onto wax paper, shaping into circle. Insert sucker stick into each one, twisting stick to coat. Top with pistachios & cranberries or sprinkle with crushed candy cane. Allow to cool & set. Enjoy!

Sorry about the not-so-great picture. Landon had other plans for me. =)
