from Julie Van Rosendaal

1 lb. (454 g.) dark or milk chocolate, melted

1 c. chopped, toasted nuts, dried fruit, seeds, broken pretzels, or anything that goes well with chocolate

Chocolate blocks make use of any kind of chocolate. This recipe is a great cupboard cleaner – tip anything from pumpkin seeds to dried apricots to broken salted pretzels into the melted chocolate, spread into an 8”x8”pan, cool and cut into blocks. They look pretty enough to serve at the end of a dinner party, with port or cappuccino.
