Fruit and nuts chocolate bites - these really do what they say on the tin. Add your favourite dried fruits and nuts to your favourite vegan chocolate and you've suddenly created a customised bar.
I love having one of these with an afternoon tea or as dessert in the evenings. Don't underestimate the ability to impress your dinner guests with a beautifully set out dessert board of homemade chocolate and cut up fruit. Don't miss out the rice krispies in this, it gives the chocolate a fun crunch and texture!
Why should you make it?
- Easy to make
- Takes less than 10 minutes to throw together (we're leaving out the painful fridge setting waiting game)
- It's yours to customise

Line a tray with baking paper and set aside.
Place the chocolate into a heat-proof bowl and add the coconut oil. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water and melt, stirring occasionally.
In a separate bowl, add the cashews, apricots, raisins and rice krispies.
Pour the melted chocolate on top and stir until combined.
Pour into a lined tray and shake distribute evenly. Press down with a spatula if needed.
Allow to set in the fridge for a couple of hours.
Once set, slice into squares (see tip) and keep stored in the fridge.
