  • Glass bowl
  • Small saucepan


  • 150 grams Dark chocolate at least 70% cacao solids
  • 2-3 tablespoons Maple syrup for extra sweetness optional
  • Selection of chopped nuts seeds, dried fruits and coconut
  • Spices such as cinnamon ginger, mixed spice, salt, nutmeg, turmeric (optional)


  • Chop your chocolate up into smallish chunks
  • Place in a glass saucepan over some hot water and allow it to melt slowly, stirring occasionally
  • In the meantime, lay out 12 rice cakes on some flat baking sheets and make sure you have your toppings prepped and ready to use
  • Once your chocolate is completely melted, add your optional maple syrup to desired sweetness
  • Take a spoon and drizzle equal amounts of chocolate mixture over your rice cakes
  • Using a knife, spread out evenly, covering one entire surface of your rice cake
  • Act fast whilst adding your toppings because you don't want your chocolate to set before you have finished
  • Squash the toppings into the chocolate slightly to stop them falling off. You need them to 'set' into the chocolate



Add your chunkier toppings to the chocolate first, and your smaller toppings (ie, desiccated coconut and spices) last. This is the best way to do it if you want your chunkier items to set into the chocolate properly.
