Spicy Chocolate Bark

My biggest regret is not taking photos of them when they were broken up into pieces.  See, i meant to. Then I started eating them and got chocolate all over my hands so I couldn't and then I forgot.  They're really really good.  I always feel slightly guilty when the photos don't do the actual food item justice.  You're just gonna have to trust me.  Spicy and sweet and bitter, all these complex flavors together, it's so good. Just look at all the ingredients!
And they make great gifts.  Nothing quite as thoughtful and loving as the gift of homemade food.  It's something I feel like my friend Sarah would love, and my other friend, Jess, would be at first hesitant, but then I would force her into having a bite and she'd like it too :D  I miss my ex-flatmates dearly.  

120g good quality dark chocolate
1/2 tsp cardamom seeds
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp candied ginger
2 tbsp pistachios
2 tbsp raisins

Break the chocolate into pieces and melt over a double boiler.  When it's melted, add the spices and half of the ginger, pistachios and raisins, and remove from heat  Spread it immediately into a thin layer onto a baking sheet, sprinkle the rest of the ginger, pistachios and raisins on top, and put it in the fridge for a few hours to firm up.  Once firm, break into pieces and indulge.
