Here's a quick and easy DIY which didn't quite get itself together in time to be posted in the run up to Christmas! Now that all our January detoxes have gone out of the window (what? just mine?) we can indulge in some fun and tasty, pimped out chocolate. This would be nice served at the end of a meal along side some coffee or you could make some for a friend to brighten up a cold January day!
Step 1: Fill a small saucepan about 1/3 full with water. Rest a bowl on the top but make sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. Break the choc into small pieces and place it in the bowl. Bring the pan of water up to a simmering point slowly. Give the chocolate a gentle stir with a wooden spoon every now and then as it melts.
Step 2: Roast some almonds (or other tasty nuts of your choosing) in the oven until golden and fragrant. Once your choc has melted, pour into a mixing bowl and add the nuts. I also added some golden raisins to this batch.
Step 3: Give it all a good stir then spread out the mixture like a cow pat onto some baking parchment.
Step 4: Sprinkle with colourful edible rose petals (I get mine from Neal's Yard Remedies) or other fancy topping of your choice.
Step 5: Leave in a cool place to set then break up into pieces and pop in a little cellophane bag!
