Maple Mendiants

8 oz. of dark chocolate (70% cacao), broken into pieces
250 ml

1 cup maple sugar nuggets

1/4 cup dried cranberries

1/4 cup whole walnuts (or sunflower seeds), toasted

 Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.

 Take a spoonful of melted chocolate and form a disk about 4 cm (1 ½ in.) in diameter on a sheet of parchment paper set on the work surface. Repeat to create 24 mendiants.

 Top with the maple nuggets, cranberries, and nuts.

 Let set for 2 hours before removing from the paper.

Mendiants will keep in an airtight container in a cool place for two to three weeks.
