Chocolate Bark

I never even try to deny the fact that I am a chocoholic, chocolate addict, a slave to chocolate.  White, milk, or dark I’m not fussy.  In recent months, chocolate bark has become one of the trendiest ways to eat chocolate.  For those of you who don’t know, chocolate bark is not bark dipped in chocolate, it is in fact just really thin chocolate.  Usually it is topped with things such as nuts and dried fruit.  I made this chocolate bark up the other evening, simply because I wanted to consume pretty chocolate.

Serves 6

What you’ll need:

  • 200 g milk chocolate
  • 100 g white chocolate
  • Golden chocolate balls
  • Pink sugar crystals
  • Hundreds and thousands

 

Method:

  1. Line a baking tray with cling film.  This will stop the chocolate from sticking and allow you to lift it cleanly out
  2. In separate bowls, melt the white and the milk chocolate in the microwave on a low heat.  Stop the microwave regularly and stir the chocolate to prevent it from burning
  3. Pour the milk chocolate into the lined baking tray and spread it as thin as possible using a spoon or metal spatula
  4. Using a spoon, drizzle the white chocolate across the milk chocolate
  5. Take a skewer and use it to swirl the chocolate so that it starts to mix together.  You can do this as much or as little as you like, just keep swirling until you’re satisfied
  6. Sprinkle the golden balls, pink crystals and hundreds and thousands across the whole of the chocolate while it is still melted.  Like the swirling, you can add as much or as little as you like
  7. Refrigerate for 1 h until solid
  8. Lift the chocolate out of the baking tray and peel off the cling film

Substitutions:

  • You can use whatever chocolate you like: milk, white or dark and any combination
  • Use flavoured chocolate e.g. orange, to compliment the rest of the dish if you are planning to serve the bark with a dish
  • Top the bark with anything you fancy e.g. mini marshmallows, nuts, dried fruit etc.
