Makes about 30
You need just two ingredients, quality Brazil nuts and good chocolate, for this fabulous snack. Flavour-wise they will be far superior to the shop-bought variety.
30 good sized, shelled Brazil nuts
250-300 good quality dark chocolate, chopped into pieces
Put the chocolate into a heatproof bowl and place over a pan of simmering water until melted, stirring every so often. Have a cake rack ready over a sheet of cling film or a tray.
Dip the Brazils into the melted chocolate a few at a time, then remove with a fork, tapping it on the side of the bowl to encourage the excess chocolate to run back into the bowl and carefully place on the wire rack.
Place the rack in the fridge for 30 minutes, remove the nuts from the rack and store in an airtight container in a cool place. Eat within a week.
