Chocolate Dried Fruit Log

I love dried fruits, and to mix them with almonds, walnuts and chocolate, and what more delicious than a touch of cognac to go with? it turned out not only beautiful but delicious

2 1/2 cups chopped assorted dried fruits 
1/2 cup brandy or cognac
1/2 cup peeled almonds
1/2 cup walnuts
300 grs. semi-sweet chocolate
long and narrow rectangular mold
waxed paper
plastic film

Place chopped dried fruit in a glass plate and pour the cognac or brandy all over them, let stand for 24 hrs.
Cover the base and sides of the mold with plastic film
Then cover only the base with waxed paper.
Place at the bottom all the dried fruit
Add the almonds and the walnuts
To melt chocoate place it on top of a double boiler or bowl set over a pan of simmering water, till chocolate is melted.
Pour chocolate over nuts and fruits, let it stand and refrigerate it for 2 hours.
Take it out and wrap it with waxed paper and plastic film if you´re not using it immediately

Ready to be enjoyed!!!
