YOU WILL NEED

  • Slabs of white and dark chocolate
  • Pansy petals*
  • Nuts, seeds and raisins
  • Baking tray
  • Baking parchment
  • Pan and glass bowl (bain-marie)

HOW TO MAKE IT

Cover the baking tray with baking parchment. Melt the chocolate in the bain-marie. Melt the different types of chocolate separately. When it’s a nice and runny spread it over the baking parchment. Quickly scatter the pansy petals and the nut and seed mixture over the chocolate so that they harden in the chocolate. Place in the fridge to cool and harden completely. You can serve on the same baking tray or an attractive wooden board. One cool effect is to break it up into large chunks, using a tea towel and a hard object.

*One more thing: never tuck in to just any old (cut) flower or plant; only use edible flowers from specialist suppliers that have been grown for human consumption.
