So I am not the first to have combined chocolate with nuts and dried fruit. I had some chocolate and a bag of trail mix lying around and this recipe for simple treats are particularly good. You don't have to use a bag of trail mix, you can add nuts/seeds and dried fruit (or not) of your choice. Whatever you have to hand. So go ahead and give it a try!


175g Milk chocolate                       
25g Dark chocolate
100g Trail mix or (50g Nuts/seeds and 50g dried fruit of your choice)
Sea Salt (optional)


Line a baking tray with grease proof paper (baking parchment). Break up the chocolate and put it in a heatproof bowl. Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Leave the chocolate to melt, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate has completely melted and is smooth.

Stir about two-thirds of the trail mix into the chocolate. Carefully pour the melted chocolate mixture on to the lined tray, then use a pallet knife to spread it as evenly and thinly as you can manage. Scatter the remaining trail mix all over the top of the chocolate mix and add a little sprinkling of salt if you like, but quickly before it starts to set. Leave to set in the fridge completely.


Once the chocolate has set, then carefully remove from the paper and break into shards with your hands or a knife. They make lovely rustic petits fours and are a great little gift. Enjoy......
