Sometimes I make my own chocolate for this and other times, which I’ve got here, I melt bought chocolate. Most health food shops and delis have lovely 70% dark chocolate so it is easy to come by. Even the Old Gold will do! So use your favourite chocolate, your favourite glace fruits, your favourite nuts and guess what?! You’ll be making your favourite chocolate!
Hazelnuts and ginger!
2 large blocks (at least 220g) of dark chocolate
Glace apricots (or another glace fruit you love)
Roasted hazelnuts (or another nut you adore)
Break up your chocolate and place in a steel bowl. Boil a cup of water in small saucepan with the steel bowl on top. Stir every now and then to melt the chocolate through. Once melted, take off the heat and whisk your chocolate until smooth.
Pour your chocolate into a bread tin or your fav banana bread loaf pan that is lined with baking paper. Now dot the other ingredients as you wish. I’ve placed the ginger and nuts together in one tin, whilst in another I’ve combined the glace fruits. Set aside for at least 5 hours until set. I usually serve this cut up in random pieces in lieu of after dinner mints. But hey, if its 10am on a Tuesday and you want to go for it, take it from Nike and ‘just do it’!
Cherries and apricots!
