This is hardly a recipe. I've tweaked the ingredients and proportions over time, and this combination is my favorite. Yours may be slightly different, so feel free to play around with different nuts and dried fruit. My one recommendation is to try to keep everything roughly the same size for balance, so you may want to cut up larger pieces of dried fruit.
1 cup salted roasted cashews
1 cup salted roasted almonds
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chunks or chips, or a mix of both
