Given how medical science is now touting the benefits of dark chocolate, you have no excuse not to indulge in these healthy little gems. They are also packed with dried fruits and almonds ... and just the slightest hint of naughtiness ... RUM! Spicy and citrus essential oils add subtle aromatic notes.
Using my favourite polycarbonate chocolate moulds will make the bars come out perfectly every time. They are also available in my online, store tenina.com/store

Soak the raisins in the rum overnight.
Place soaked raisins and any residual rum onto a baking paper lined tray with the almond slivers.
