How to Make Chocolate Boxes

  • Melt the dark chocolate and spread it evenly over a large sheet of baking parchment.
  • Leave to harden in a cool room.
  • When just set, cut the chocolate into 5 cm / 2 inch squares and remove from the paper.
  • Make sure that your hands are as cool as possible and handle the chocolates as little as possible.
  • Cut the cake into two 5 cm / 2 inch cubes, then cut each cube into half.
  • Warm the apricot jam and brush it over the sides of the cake cubes.
  • Carefully press a chocolate square into each side of the cake cube to give four chocolate boxes with cake at the bottom.
  • Leave to chill for 20 minutes.
  • Whip the (double) heavy cream with the maple syrup until just holding its shape.
  • Spoon or pipe a little of the mixture into each chocolate box.
  • Decorate the top of each box with the prepared fruit.
  • If liked, the fruit can be partially dipped into melted chocolate and allowed to harden before putting into the boxes.
