Pretty simple to make and very impressive.Your guest would think you got it from a gourmet store.
You will need
Some chocolate Dark,Milk or White (I am partial to dark chocolate)
Dried or candied fruits of choice
Divide your chocolate into 2/3 and 1/3.
Melt 2/3 in the microwave at 20 secs interval,stirring it after 20 secs so it doesn’t burn.
When it has melted,add the 1/3 portion and stir it until very blended (this is called tempering,you have to temper your chocolate so that it will have that nice snap to it and not melt in your hands).
Line a tray with parchment paper and drop buttons of chocolate on it with teaspoons
I used these dried and candied fruits. You can find the recipe for the candied ginger here and the recipe for candied orange here,I used candied orange peel but you can use candied orange slices. The candied pineapple and candied lemon have similar steps too.
Now arrange the fruits and nuts as you like it,1 per chocolate button
Sprinkle with a little sea salt from a height.
Or would you prefer White Chocolate……
If it has not yet set up,put in the refrigerator until set,probably about 5 mins.
