If making homemade chocolate is something you’ve always wanted to do, but if you think it might be above your culinary skill level, why not try our mendiant recipe? You’ll love our recipe of a beautiful bite-sized chocolate disc that doesn’t require more skill than pouring and decorating, doesn’t require special equipment.
For these French-style chocolates, you can combine your own favorite combinations and choose from a wide range of nuts. In white chocolate, walnuts, peanuts, pine nuts, coconut raspberries or melon, papaya, orange or lemon, all kinds of sugar will look good. Also candied flowers are a good choice to beautify your mendiants. Candied rose petals or violets will give your mendiants a flamboyant touch. But be careful, 3-4 different materials per Mendiant are enough, otherwise it will be a bit overdone.
