Raw Chocolate Fruit & Nuts
There is something quite childlike about dipping nuts and fruit segments into melted chocolate and I look forward to doing this every year. It couldn’t be easier, so I’m sure you could get little ones involved too. Simply dip seasonal or dried fruits and nuts into melted chocolate then lay them onto a sheet of parchment paper and pop into the fridge.
- 200g raw, dark chocolate. I really like this one from Ombar
- A selection of dried fruit: Figs, unsulphured apricots, pitted prunes or candied orange (or other fruit or dried fruit of your choice)
- A selection of nuts: such as Brazil nuts, pecans, and walnuts (or other nuts of your choice)
Break the chocolate into pieces, and melt in a bowl over a barely simmering saucepan of water.
You can get creative and add in peppermint or orange oil, sea salt, orange or lime zest, hemp or chia seeds for a little crunch if you’d like.
Gently dip your dried fruit and nuts into the melted mixture, then lay them carefully on a tray and set in the fridge. You could also try dipping mint leaves into the chocolate – these make a perfect alternative to after dinner mint chocolates.
