Microwave chocolate chips in large microwavable bowl on HIGH for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until almost melted, stirring after 1 minute. Stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in orange extract.
Spread on large foil-lined baking sheet to 1/4-inch thickness. Sprinkle with almonds, apricots and cranberries, pressing lightly into chocolate with spatula.
Refrigerate about 10 minutes or until firm. Break into irregular pieces to serve. Store in tightly covered container at cool room temperature or in refrigerator up to 5 days.
I made this last night for a Christmas gathering today with my three best friends. They all loved it and each took some with them at the end of the day. I found that it tasted much better today than it had last night when I'd first made it. One problem: I used Nestle Premier White Morsels. These do NOT melt when microwaved. I wasted two bags of chips learning this. I went to a double boiler and it worked just fine. Since making a mess of two batches of chips, I've spoken to two people who have told me, no, you can't melt white chocolate in the microwave.
