Instructions and steps:
Step 1Put cranberries, almonds, pistachios and coconut in a bowl. Mix together well.
Step 2Spoon 1/4 of a teaspoon each of dark and white chocolate in the base of each star-shaped ice-cube tray or mould. Fill each star with the fruit and nut mixture. Gently tap trays on the bench.
Step 3Spoon the same amount of white and dark chocolate over the top of each. Tap on bench again to settle the chocolate. Refrigerate for 15–20 minutes, or until stars are firm.
Step 4Carefully pop the chocolate fruit and nut stars from the moulds and set aside.
Store stars in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for 2 weeks. In warm weather it’s best to keep refrigerated. They can also be easily packaged and make gorgeous Christmas gifts.
