Place the nuts, fruit and rose petals in a large frying pan and add the rice syrup. Gently heat the pan and stir thorough for about 5 minutes until all the ingredients are coated in the rice syrup.
Line a baking tray with baking paper and using round metal rings, fill the ring with the mixture and press it down flat to make a flat biscuit. Continue until all the mixture is used up.
Bring a pan of water to boil, and while the water is heating break the chocolate into a stainless steel bowl. Once the water is boiling turn off the heat and lay the bowl over the pan to melt the chocolate.
