It's one of the most popular dessert in France, Opera is dedicated to chocolate lovers. Did you know this pastry was named in 1950 by Cyriaque Gavillon, a pastry chef who owned the emblematic Dalloyau bakery ?
I had some black chocolate in my kitchen so I decided to make some mendiants with It. It's very quick and simple to do and you can put everything you want on them : nuts, dried fruits, pistachios... I put praline roses, dried fruits and nuts on mine. I just melted some chocolate, and with a spoon I did some circles, and added some pralines roses, nuts and dried fruits and I put It in the fridge for 30 minutes and It's ready to eat !
