Method
  1. Grease a 30cm x 20cm baking tray with oil and line with two layers of cling film. Set aside until needed.
  2. Spoon the yoghurt into a bowl. Then add about 30g of hazelnuts, 30g of dried fruit and the orange juice and zest; and mix thoroughly. Pour into the baking tray and shake gently from side-to-side to level.
  3. Sprinkle the remaining hazelnuts and dried fruit, and the grated chocolate over the yoghurt mix. Gently press into the surface using a clean palate knife or the back of a spoon.
  4. Place in the freezer, ensuring the baking tray is level, and leave for at least two hours.
  5. To serve, remove from the freezer and stand at room temperature for 2–3 minutes before snapping into pieces.
Put any remaining pieces into a sealed pot or freezer bag and return to the freezer until needed. Use within 1 month.
