So, lots of you have come on over from instagram looking for the recipe for the chocolate bark we made for our Girls Easter Day at my place. Thanks for stopping by! This is so easyyyyyy to make, with just a few simple instructions, which I've listed below. Follow these steps, and you'll have yourselves a tasty, girly chocolate bark.
I wanted this bark to be very feminine, but still rustic with beautiful dusky pink + rose tones from the dried rose petals + raspberries, and also with a hint of earthy green and mauve from the pistachios. And then with a light dusting of coconut... The outcome is so beautiful and delicious, and a delight for the eyes and tastebuds. It would be super fun to make with your girlfriends, or to even surprise them with a little bagful! We cut ours up into pieces
and I gave the girls those old fashioned plastic lolly bags to put them in, and tied them with twine.
Here's the recipe!
* 3 x 200g milk chocolate chips (I use cadbury)
* 1 x 200g white chocolate chips
* A handful of fresh raspberries (chopped in half)
* A handful of pistachios (chopped roughly)
* Some desiccated coconut
* Light pink rose petals (colour is totally up to you, and we used dried, but fresh is good too)
Line a baking tray with baking paper
Melt 2 of the 200 gram packets (400 grams) of chocolate in the microwave for approx 20 seconds. Be sure to keep an eye on it as chocolate holds it's shape when it heats up, so give it a bit of a stir to see how it's going. Use whatever chocolate you like, sometimes it's great to add dark chocolate too.
Pour the melted chocolate onto the tray lined with baking paper and spread into a very thin layer, as evenly as you can.
Now put it in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes.
Melt the other two 200 gram packets of chocolate. For this part we used one packet of white chocolate chips, and one packet of milk chocolate chips. Melt them in separate bowls.
Now take the chilled chocolate out of the fridge and pour the white chocolate on one half of the slab, and the milk chocolate on the other side.
Then simply take a knife with a pointy edge and draw swirly lines through the chocolate to mix the white and brown together and make a marbled effect.
Now is time to decorate!
Take your raspberries and press them gently into the chocolate, and then sprinkle the rest on as you please. Whatever feels right to you, it's your own masterpiece!
Of course, you can adapt this in so many ways. It'd also be fun to do with kids using bright coloured lollies and smarties.
