- 450 gdark chocolate (64 to 70% cocoa content), coarsely chopped
- ¼ cup(s)pecan halves, roasted
- ¼ cup(s)roasted macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
- ¼ cup(s)pistachio nuts, roasted and shelled
- ¼ cup(s)sunflower seeds, roasted and shelled
- ¼ cup(s)dried cherries
- ¼ cup(s)dried apricots, chopped
Step 1Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Step 2Put the chopped chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Place the bowl in the microwave, set the power to medium and microwave for 20 seconds. Stir the chocolate with a rubber spatula and if it is not completely melted, microwave again for 20 seconds. Then stir again and repeat or stir until the chocolate is smooth.
Step 3Spread the melted chocolate on the baking sheet lined with paper. The layer should be between 0.5cm and 1cm thick, the edges do not need to be perfect, as the chocolate will be broken up anyway.
Step 4Immediately sprinkle the pecans, macadamias, pistachios, sunflower seeds, cherries and apricots over the still-melted chocolate.
Step 5Let the chocolate set until solid. This will take about 20 minutes at cool room temperature or 5 to 10 minutes in the refrigerator.
Step 6Break the chocolate into coarse portion pieces and store in a covered container at cool room temperature until ready to serve.
