Ingredients

How to make it

  • Place a sheet of acetate or waxed paper on a marble slab or other smooth, cold surface. Melt chocolate in a microwave oven or in a bowl over hot water.
  • Place a scant teaspoonful of melted chocolate on the sheet, and shape into a disk using the back of a spoon. Make several at a time so that the chocolate does not become too cool.
  • Place a pistachio, raisin, almond, and halved strip of orange peel on each disk, and leave to cool completely. The mendiants are ready when they come off the acetate or waxed paper with ease
