Fruit and Nut Chocolate Bites

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 
Tip: For those who like neat slices, run your knife under hot water and wipe until completely dry, your chocolate will slice better.
