Want to know how to make a simple, 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
- Medium sized glass bowl
- Medium sized pan
- Sheet of greaseproof paper
- Tablespoon (to stir the chocolate)
- Knife (to evenly spread the chocolate)
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.
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.
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.
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.
