Ingredients

    For dark chilli drops

    • 200g dark chocolate (we used 70% cocoa content)
    • a pinch of hot chilli powder
    • red edible glitter (we used splatcooking.com)

    For salted pistachio drops

    • 200g milk chocolate (we used Green & Black's cook's chocolate with extra cocoa butter)
    • an eighth of a tsp flaky sea salt
    • 25g pistachios, finely chopped

    For rose drops

    • 200g white chocolate
    • crystallised rose petals (we used squires-shop.com)

    Method

    1. For the dark chilli drops: break the chocolate into chunks and melt in a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. Meanwhile, line a few flat baking trays with baking parchment. Once the chocolate has melted, stir in the chilli powder. Use a teaspoon to drop ‘drops’ of the chocolate onto the baking parchment. Every 10 or 20 drops, scatter over a small amount of red glitter before the chocolate sets. Leave to set in a cool place, but do not put in the fridge.

    2. For the salted pistachio drops: melt the chocolate and prepare baking parchment as before. Once the chocolate has melted, stir in the salt, then make drops as above, topping with chopped pistachios.

    3. For the white chocolate drops: carefully melt the chocolate as above. Make drops, as above. Once they are partially set, top each with a crystallised rose petal.

    I made these as Christmas presents, and I still make them just for me because they are amazing! Could take or leave the chilli ones, and didn't try the rose ones. But bloomin' 'eck, the pistachio ones were to die for! They are so addictive, I have to scoff loads before the boyfriend finds them! I did some white choc ones with lemon zest mixed into the choc, and dessicated coconut sprinkled on top. They were really lovely aswell

    Just made this recipe and so pleased with the results - really simple to make but the results are stunning (we've also made the mulled suryp) - Christmas presents for friends are now sorted!

    I used dark chocolate with chopped pistachios, white chocolate with pink 'glimmer sugar' and milk chocolate with raisins. Dropped the melted chocolate onto a non stick teflon sheet to set. Peeled them off and put into a couple of gift bags and tied with a ribbon - really nice presents that were appreciated. Really easy to do as well. Would make again and maybe experiment with grated zest from citrus fruits.

    I want to give these as xmas gifts and don't wan them to go off do they need to be eaten in 3 days or can they be kept a bit longer?

    Could someone tell me where/how you get the tiny chocolate mats from? Or were they home made? I really want to make these

    These are different and would be good for Christmas presents too.
