Dark chocolate in bars is usually much better quality than the cooking chocolate drops, so buy a good high cocoa- percentage bar and chop it yourself. The cocoa nibs really maximise the chocolate flavour, but can be a little bitter, so leave out if you’re not a strong chocolate fan!
40g/1½ oz dark (bittersweet) chocolate, at least 70% cocoa solids, roughly chopped
50g/1¾ oz/1⁄3 cup dried cherries
50g/13/4 oz/1⁄3 cup whole unblanched almonds
30g/1oz/1⁄6 cup unroasted buckwheat groats
10g/1⁄3oz/1 tbsp cocoa nibs (optional)
Mix all the ingredients together, then divide into bags to snack from.
