Chocolate Treats

These measurements are quite vague, but that's just to give you flexibility.... For info, I used about 250g of each variety of chocolate and made about 30 of these treats each time. These look great, taste great, and are easy to make. Ideal for a handmade gift.

Chocolate Treats

Makes: Depends on how much chocolate you use
Takes: 10-15 minutes


Chocolate (milk, plain or white)
Toppings - raisins, chopped cranberries, chopped crystallised ginger, chopped nuts, tiny sweets - use your imagination!

  • Melt the chocolate, either in a bowl over simmering water or in short bursts in the microwave.
  • Drop teaspoonfuls onto non-stick baking parchment.
  • Sprinkle over your chosen topping and leave to set.
It's that easy :-) Store in an airtight container in a cool place - will keep for several weeks so can be made in advance for Christmas presents.

Recommended combinations: plain chocolate and ginger, milk chocolate and raisins, white chocolate and cranberries.
