Melt the chocolate according to the package directions, using the microwave or a double boiler. Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment or wax paper that is about 15 inches by 10 inches.
Remove the chocolate from the heat and stir in the dried fruit, if using.
Using a spatula, spread the chocolate thinly onto the parchment paper until it is about 1/4-inch thick (it won’t cover the whole parchment paper but do your best to make it thin).
Sprinkle your chosen toppings evenly over the chocolate, and, using the back of the spatula, press them gently into the chocolate.
Transfer the pan to the freezer for about 20 minutes or refrigerate it for 30 minutes, or until it hardens. Remove the chocolate from the freezer and break it into uneven pieces to serve it.
Store it in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator if it is starting to melt, or wrap it up to give as a delicious gift.
