French Dark Chocolate Mendiants
French Dark Chocolate Mendiants, about 18
200g (7oz) good quality dark chocolate
150g (7oz) assorted dried exotic fruits and nuts
A few edible silver sprinkles to decorate (optional)
Line a large baking sheet with baking paper.
Gently melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of barely simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn't touch the surface of the water.
Place teaspoons of the chocolate on the paper and smooth into 5cm circles. Working quickly, sprinkle over the dried fruits, nuts and silver sprinkles.
Leave for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator to set.
