Cranberry-Almond Chocolate Clusters {American Heritage Chocolate} #MC

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for American Heritage Chocolate. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

With the holidays, it seems chocolate is everywhere. So much of the baking, treats and goodies we indulge in this time of year are centered around chocolate. How much do you know about the history of chocolate in this country? One might think that kids have been eating chocolate treats and candy bars forever, when in fact, the chocolate of the 1750′s is much unlike the chocolate we have today.

Recently, I was able to find out how much different that chocolate was by trying out  American Heritage Chocolate products.

The products are certified Kosher, made with all-natural ingredients and no preservatives.  What makes this chocolate so different is it’s authentic historic recipe. It is made ONLY with ingredients that were available in the 1750′s. Biting into this chocolate, it is a different experience that what we are used to. 

This chocolate has a very one-of-a-kind flavor that is mildly spicy, and slightly sweet – flavored with a blend of spices and ingredients available during colonial times, including cinnamon, nutmeg, chili pepper, orange, anise and vanilla.

American Heritage Chocolate is available for sale at over 130 living history museums and sites across the US and Canada. I received some of their products to try out and was able to use their chocolate bars to create Cranberry-Almond Clusters.

You can find my recipe on the American Heritage Chocolate website, as well as other cool facts about chocolate on their interactive chocolate timeline. 

I chose this recipe because I thought that the spicy, mild sweetness of the chocolate, paired with the crunch of almond and tang/sweetness of the cranberries would be great – and it was! Great for a holiday gift!
