Recipe | Easy, Fun Chocolate Slab

Are you ever left with chocolate round the house? I am and surprisingly, I’m not the biggest chocoholic in the world but I do often crave a bar every now and again. Usually I’m fond of some good old fruit and nut or some other wonderful concoction. I’m really not into plain chocolate. When I say plain I don’t mean dark, I mean chocolate that is simply chocolate with no other ingredients in there. So instead of just having chocolate sat around waiting for my next choccy craving, I thought I’d raid my cupboards to see what ingredients I had to mix in with it to create my very own chocolate slab. If you’d also like to make your own chocolate slab check out my little, simple “recipe” below. I reckon this would be a fab activity to do with children or maybe if like me, you like to get a tad creative every once in a while.
What I used:
  • 1 Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Easter egg (A big bar of chocolate is a good alternative)
  • 1 smashed up Cadbury’s Crunchie Bar
  • 2 crusted up plain Digestive biscuits
  • Rainbow Sprinkles
  • Chocolate Sprinkles
  • Hundreds and Thousands
Tools/utensils:
  • Medium sized glass bowl
  • Medium sized pan
  • Sheet of greaseproof paper
  • Tablespoon (to stir the chocolate)
  • Knife (to evenly spread the chocolate)
Step 1:
Select your ingredients you’re going add to your chocolate and of course have your chocolate at the ready. I went for a Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Easter egg (I actually made this slab quite a while a go when I had an Easter egg left over so if you’re confused and thinking I’ve kept my egg for this long, I haven’t) The ingredients I chose were crushed up digestive biscuits, a Cadbury’s Crunchie and various sprinkles to jazz it up. Ideally I would have liked some more interesting ingredients but I sadly didn’t have any in the house but next time I hope to add in popping candy, jelly beans, Smarties and some other great bits and bobs. I also reckon dried fruit would make a nice addition.
Step 2:
Fill your pan with boiling water and pop a glass bowl on top to melt your chocolate in. Remember to keep stirring to stop your chocolate from sticking and to ensure that it all melts properly.
Step 3:
Pour your melted chocolate onto some grease proof paper. To get an even-ish slab, smooth out with a knife and then top with whatever treats you selected earlier. Remember it doesn’t have to look perfect! I personally think a messy approach adds to the look. Once done, leave to cool until the chocolate is at room temperature and then pop in the fridge for around an two hours.

 

 

Step 4:
Check that your chocolate slab is nice and solid. Once completely set feel free to eat until your heart is content (or until it’s all gone) I opted to break my slab up into more nibble friendly pieces.
