Fruit & nut chocolates

As you may already know, I’m part british (although many people can’t tell due to my mish-mash of an accent) which automatically makes me a Cadbury lover. And it is no secret that my all-time favourite chocolate is their Fruit & Nut – followed closely by Toblerone, because who better than the Swiss, right? -.

That together with the fact that recently I’ve had this huge craving, and that I’ve had a brand new chocolate mold that was waiting for me to free it from its box (yes, it hadn’t been used, ergo, not opened, since I got it from my bestie for my birthday in July, I know, shame on me)… I had a lightbulb moment! Not that I’m claiming this is the best thing since sliced bread, or am I?

  • 200g / 3/4 cups good quality chocolate
  • 50g / 3 tbsp whole almonds
  • 50g / 3 tbsp whole raisins
  1. Start by tempering the chocolate in a medium bowl. If you’re wondering, this is how I learned. This will allow the chocolate to hold back its shape once it’s hardened.
  2. Add the almonds and the raisins. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour carefully onto the chocolate mold and let it cool.

BONUS TIPS:

  • This might be the most simple recipe in my website so far! Feel free to mix things up, add other nuts or dried fruit of your choice.
  • It should go without saying that you don’t need an actual chocolate mold. An ice tray will also do the trick.
