Chocolate Making: California Fruit and Nut Coins aka Mendiants

Chocolate Making: California Fruit and Nut Coins aka Mendiants

Posted by Chocolatier Jason on 4th Sep 2016

We used Organic Dark Chocolate 70% and the super easy microwave tempering method

Make your chocolate coins on wax paper or parchment so the chocolate doesn't stick.

You can add any type of crunchy nut and fruit combination to your chocolate coins.  In France this traditional chocolate candy is called a mendiant. Here in the California chocolate factory we call them California Chocolate Fruit and Nut Coins - it is more descriptive plain English.

OlĂ©, California Chocolate Fruit and Nut Coins or Voila, French Chocolate Mendiants. Take your pick. They are extra yummy by any name.
