Recipe: Chocolate Slab Easter Edition

After seeing all the Giant Chocolate Slabs at Hotel Chocolate and reading a recipe for Chocolate Bark on Katie’s blog, I thought I would give it a go. Thinking of toppings I could use, I decided to go for an Easter theme as if there wasn’t enough Chocolate around the house at this time of the year!

Ingredients:

  • 200g Galaxy Chocolate
  • 200g Milkybar Chocolate
  • 1 pack of Cadbury Mini Eggs
  • 1 pack of assorted Cadburys Dairy milk mini eggs (Daim, Oreo & Creme Egg)

Method:

  1. Line a shallow baking tray or glass dish with greaseproof paper
  2. Break 150g of Milkybar chocolate into pieces before microwaving in 20-second bursts until melted. Make sure to stir the Chocolate after each 20-second burst.
  3. Pour the Milkybar chocolate into the tray and spread evenly.
  4. Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes or until the Chocolate starts to set. If the chocolate sets fully, there’s a chance it won’t attach to the top layer.
  5. Microwave 200g of Galaxy chocolate in 20-second bursts until melted. Spread this over the Milkybar chocolate to form the second layer.
  6. To give the Cadbury Mini Eggs a hatched look, place them in a food bag before cracking them with a rolling pin.
  7. Press the Mini broken eggs into the chocolate slab.
  8. Melt the remaining 50g of Milkybar chocolate and drizzle over the slab.
  9. Cut the Daim, Oreo & Creme Eggs in half before pressing them into the Chocolate.
  10. Refrigerate until set before breaking into shards.

This quick and simple recipe could be easily adapted by switching out the toppings. I’m looking forward to creating another version with dried fruit; what toppings would you use?
