This is another easy cookie recipe from the book, 法国经典甜点 La Patisserie Francaise Pour Tous. It is nutty and chocolatey and also great for various occasions or festive seasons!
150g whole Hazelnuts
30g golden raisin (I replaced it with dried apricot)
250g chocolate block
1) Preheat oven at 180 degC.
2) Put hazelnuts and pistachios on a lined baking tray. Roast for about 8 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove and leave it to cool.
Lightly stir the chocolate mixture until all the chocolate pieces has melted. Remove from heat.
4) Spoon half a spoonful of of melted chocolate into the silicone cupcake mould, use the back of the spoon to smoothen the surface.
5) Put in roasted hazelnuts, pistachios and dried apricot according to your liking. Remove from mould when the chocolate is completely solidified.
Store the mendiants in a cool dry place as the chocolate melted easily.
