Aaaagh – I’ve had a blog related trauma and the original of this post has been eaten so I’m having to re-write it and as always is the case, I can’t get it to sound as good as the first time around. 😉
Miss Frugal and I made some Halloween chocolate bark the other day which turned out brilliantly – it tasted delicious and even more importantly (when you’re 14 years old) it looked brilliant so we thought we’d share it with you today so you could have a go at making your own.
Halloween chocolate bark
1 large bar of cooking milk chocolate
1 smaller bar white cooking chocolate
Some spooky sweets
(Optional) Halloween shade food colouring – not the gel types.
- Line the baking trays/dishes that you’re going to be using with greaseproof paper to help you get the Halloween chocolate bark out easier when you’re done.
- Melt the milk chocolate and pour into the mould, spreading it as evenly as you can.
- While you’re doing that, melt the white chocolate and use the back of a spoon to drizzle some of that on the milk chocolate – we were aiming for a cobweb effect.
- Mix the rest of the white chocolate with the food colouring and drizzle that on there too.
- Before the chocolate sets, pop your sweets on top and gently push them in to the chocolate.
- Put it in the fridge to set for a couple of hours and this is what you should get when it’s ready.
- When the chocolate has set, you can simply break it up into pieces to serve.
I’m hoping to make some for Christmas now we know how well this turned out but I’ll use better quality chocolate and hopefully some sophisticated toppings like chilli and sea salt which I’ve read makes a great topping if you use dark chocolate. It would look great in some cellophane bags tied with ribbon!
