White chocolate is the perfect catalyst for the warm Mediterranean flavors of Corsica: walnuts, dates, and orange zest.

  • 3 oz white chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons walnuts, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons dried dates, chopped
  • 1 ½ teaspoons crystallized orange peel, finely chopped

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes

  • Total Time: 10 minutes


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler filled with barely simmering water. Drop the chocolate onto the parchment in heaping teaspoonfuls, smoothing each drop into a 2-inch circle. Working quickly, sprinkle the walnuts, dates, and orange peel over the chocolate disks before they set up.

Makes 8 servings.
