Ingredients

  • 40 g macadamias finely chopped
  • 200 g dark chocolate finely chopped

Instructions

  1. Line two large baking trays with greaseproof paper and put them in the fridge to keep cool while you toast the macadamias and melt the chocolate.
  2. Put the chopped macadamias on a baking tray and toast them under a hot grill for a minute or until they are lightly browned. Remove the macadamias from under the grill.
  3. Put some boiled water in a small saucepan and place a slightly larger heatproof plastic or glass bowl over the top of the saucepan. Put the chocolate in the bowl and stir with a spoon until evenly melted.

  4. Get your chilled, lined baking trays out of the fridge and put them on your kitchen bench along with the toasted macadamias.
  5. Place level teaspoons of melted chocolate on the lined baking trays (spaced apart). Tap the tray slightly so the chocolate spreads out into disc shapes. Sprinkle the chocolate drops with macadamias. Allow the chocolate to set at room temperature (or in the fridge if you live in a warm climate).

Recipe Notes

Wrap the finished macadamia & dark chocolate drops in greaseproof paper and put them in airtight containers in the fridge or freezer.
