Chocolate bark is always a hit in my house, so I had to do an Easter themed recipe.
I used my favourite bark silicone moulds to make mine, but it could easily be made in one go and cutting the bark into shards.
The base is a mixture of two thirds dark chocolate and one third of milk chocolate and then topped with a thin coating of white chocolate. I always melt chocolate in the microwave nowadays, but some people think the traditional way in a bowl over simmering water is the only way of doing it! Just take care not to overheat it as it can seize right up – especially the white chocolate.
200g good quality dark chocolate
100g good quality milk chocolate
200g good quality white chocolate
Cadbury’s Mini Eggs – broken into halves
Sprinkles – I used FunCakes Spring mix and Ducks
Break up the dark and milk chocolate into pieces and melt in the microwave.
Pour the chocolate into the moulds, dividing it equally. Agitate the moulds to make sure the chocolate is nice and level and gets into all the corners. This also helps eliminate air bubbles.
Leave to set, before melting the white chocolate. Leave to cool a little before pouring over the dark and milk chocolate layer.
Divide the white chocolate between the moulds, covering the bottom layer. Agitate the moulds again to level out the top layer.
While the white chocolate is still molten, stud with the mini eggs and scatter over the sprinkles. I prefer to break up the mini eggs as they can be a choking hazard and my little girl is only two.
These are a perfect Easter chocolate treat.
