Notes

  • Adding some cashews and dried cranberries instead of goji berries makes it more festive. Add some pecans,raisins and Sultanas, or dried raspberries or coconut chips .
  • If you are making it for kids adding some sprinkles is a great idea.
  • To make it more festive, or if you are gifting it to someone you could add some edible glitter to make these sparkly. Sticking edible gold or silver foil makes this look really indulgent.
  • Adding a bit of vanilla extract enhances the flavour of these chocolate discs. Chocolates and orange is a smashing flavour, so instead of vanilla adding some orange extract and some orange zest will give it a perfect citrus twist.
  • Adding a tiny bit of salt flakes will enhance the taste of these chocolate discs.
