Chocolate Raisins & Nuts Bars

Chocolate Chocolate!! Who doesn't like chocolate? I think there is none right..:) We adults always love chocolates but just because of the word "FAT" then we'll try to eat less..at least I'm one of them..haha!
Okay, today's post a very simple and yet rich with chocolate and nuts bars which my family adores..:D

Chocolate Raisin & Nuts bars!! This recipe has been with me for at least 10 years, and this was only the 3rd time I made...;p Why? You know larr...."fattening" was the fact..LOL!
But this time it was meant for my daughter, anyhow this is her 1st time trying...haha!

250g Granita biscuits (break into bite size)
100g mashmallows (small ones, or halved the normal size)
50g black raisins
50g yogurt raisins
1 cup roasted peanuts
375g good quality dark chocolate ( i used Vahrona Chocolate)
60g shortening

~ Prepare a tin (6x9") lined with cling wrap. (make sure the cling wrap enough to cover the top)
~ Combine biscuits with marshmallows, raisins, cherries and peanuts. Set aside.
~ Melt chocolate in a pot, when chocolate is totally melted, add in shortening and mix well.
~ Pour melted chocolate mixture into the biscuits mixture and mix well.
~ Cover the top with the rest of the cling wrap and press firmly.
~ Refrigerate until firm. (at least 5-6 hours)
~ Cut into thick slices or squares.

** Chocolate Bars can be store in fridge for a week.
