Ingredients to make Chocolate Mendiants

  • 300 grams bitter sweet chocolate or dark chocolate(take two slabs of 150 grams each)

  • Handful golden raisins

How to make Chocolate Mendiants

  1. Break chocolate into small pieces. Melt in a double boiler.
  2. While the chocolate is melting, take a parchment sheet big enough to cover your baking tray. Make circles of 2 1/2 inches with a pencil. Turn the sheet. Circles must be visible.
  3. Pour 1 tablespoon of melted chocolate inside the circle and spread with the back of the spoon to get a perfect circle.
  4. Arrange dry fruits and nuts.
  5. Repeat till melted chocolate is over. If the chocolate becomes firm melt again and continue.
  6. Keep the tray with Mendiants in the refrigerator for an hour.
  7. Remove and store in an airtight container.

My Tip:

Prepare Mendiants with one slab at a time. Reheat chocolate as needed. Use your creativity in decorating the Mendiants. Use pepita seeds, walnuts, cashews etc.
