Using three sheets of baking paper, draw circles that are equal distance apart using an egg cup or glass as a guide, depending on the desired size of your mendiants.

Turn the baking paper over and place on to baking trays.

Using a saucepan, fill up to a quarter with water and simmer. Break the dark chocolate in to pieces, place in to a heat proof bowl and place on top of the pan of water.

Once the chocolate has began to melt, remove from the heat and allow the remaining solid chocolate to melt.

Now the chocolate has melted completely use a spoon to create the chocolate circles on to the baking paper. Sprinkle a variation of finely chopped ingredients on top and allow to cool on a work surface.

Repeat this process with clean equipment for the white chocolate and milk chocolate. Get creative with your toppings!

When set, peel the mendiants off the paper and place in to a gift box and tie ribbon around as a gift or enjoy as a treat.
