    Make these bites, store them in the freezer and hope-like-hope they last until the weekend so you can serve them up at a BBQ for your friends.

    Step 1: Measure out all you ingredients and place everything except the chocolate into a food processor or high-speed blender.

    Step 2: Pulse all of the ingredients.You want to stop it every so often and scrape down the sides, that way you get a nice even texture without any lumps. It will be good to go in just a minute or two.

    Step 3: Line a small container or baking dish with baking paper (mine was 19 cm x 14 cm). Spoon in the fudge. You want to do your best to smooth out the top and ensure the sides of the paper aren't crumbled, that way your fudge is a little more 'square' when you cut it. Pop it in the freezer to set for a good hour or two. Often, I'll leave mine overnight.

    Step 4: Chop the fudge in to little squares then melt the chocolate over simmering water.

    Step 5: Toss the fudge in the chocolate and then place onto a lined tray to 'harden' in the freezer. I like to sprinkle mine with seeds so they look nice, but you don't have to.

    Keep your Choc-Caramel Bites stored in the freezer, they'll hold together better and boy they taste great really-really cold.
