Custom Chocolate Slabs – Pic Heavy

This is certainly one of the easiest recipes ever!!!  They are so simple to make, and take about 15 minutes to do (apart from the cooling time).  Just imagine the possibilities…

I am also pleased to announce that making these 2 chocolate bars in to 4 extravagant chocolate slabs cost me about 90p in total!!  Much cheaper than buying a bar of Dairy Milk, or a Mars bar…

Ingredients

Chocolate (white, milk or dark) – I used 2 bars of Asda’s own brand dark chocolate

Toppings (sugar sprinkles, hundreds & thousands, raisins, nuts, chilli flakes, mini marshmallows, etc.)

Method

1.  Place a glass bowl on top of a pan filled with water.  Ensure that the bottom of the glass bowl does NOT touch the water.  Line a baking tray, or somewhere flat (I used a glass cutting board this time around) with baking / greaseproof paper.

2.  Break your chocolate in to small pieces, and place in the glass bowl.  Turn up the heat.

3.  Using a metal spoon, constantly stir the chocolate until it is fully melted.  **You need to keep stirring, as the chocolate can, and will burn if you leave it to its’ own devices.  **The glass bowl will get VERY hot, so ensure that you are using an oven glove / tea-towel to secure as you stir.

4.  Once fully melted, using the metal spoon, scoop out the melted chocolate on to the baking / greaseproof paper in to slabs…  Try to ensure that the slabs are not too thick, as you don’t want to wait around forever for them to set afterwards.

5.  As soon as you have used all of the chocolate up, get the glass bowl in soak, quickly…  Trying to wash dried on chocolate is not as fun as it sounds.

6.  Decorate your chocolate slabs as you see fit – whether you use dried fruit, nuts, sprinkles, chilli flakes, etc.

(the sweet mixed spice was being mixed gently in to the chocolate here)

7.  Allow the slabs to cool for a minimum of 30 minutes…

8.  Peel off the baking / greaseproof paper and enjoy x
