Fruit and nut bark
This chocolate bark is delicious as a post-dinner treat, and also makes a great gift. Package up three or four pieces in a cellophane bag and tie with your favourite ribbon.
- Place chopped dried fruits and nuts in a bowl and toss well to combine. Line two trays with greaseproof paper.
- Melt chocolate in microwave or by placing in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water for three to five minutes. Stir until smooth. Spread chocolate out thickly in bark-like shapes and sprinkle with dried fruit and nuts.
- Leave in a cool place to set, then remove from paper. Serve with coffee.
