Dark Chocolate and Hazelnut Tiles



Cooks in:        Serves:Makes 12-15

  • 300g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup roughly chopped roasted and salted hazelnuts
  • Pinch of sea salt flakes (optional)

What to do

1. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

2. Heat the chocolate over a double boiler until it is almost melted, then stir gently until you have a silky consistency.

3. In a dry pan, roast the hazelnuts over low-medium heat until golden. Set aside to allow to cool.

4. Pour the mixture onto the baking paper, using a spatula or palette knife to spread it out as thinly as possible (roughly ½ cm) into a rough square, then sprinkle over the chopped nuts and sea salt flakes.

4. Leave to set at room temperature, or refrigerate for about 2 hours, before slicing or breaking into tiles to serve on a small platter.
