White chocolate is blended with coconut and bright tart dried cherries. The richness of pistachios complements the festive flavors and adds a touch of green.
Line square baking pan with plastic wrap; spray with vegetable pan spray and set aside. Place candy in 2-quart microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on 50% power 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until candy is melted and smooth. Stir in coconut, nuts and cherries. Spread mixture into prepared pan; smooth surface using spatula. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.
Remove candy from pan. Cut out circles, hearts, flowers and squares with metal cutters. Store between pieces of parchment paper in airtight container in cool place for up to 1 week.
Makes about 6 candy rounds.
Substitution: If desired, substitute 1/2 cup chopped pecans, almonds, cashews or macadamia nuts for pistachios.
