Mendiants with nuts and fruit

These cute little chocolate treats are so easy to make and are something I’ve found that both adults and children alike enjoy. They’re a great treat to serve with a cup of coffee or a glass och almond milk, and don’t take much time or effort to throw together.

I often use the fruits and nuts I have on hand and found these to go great together in terms of flavors and textures, but you can also use whatever dried fruits and nuts you happen to have at home.
