Hey foodies I hope each one of you is well. I have an exciting post today especially for those who have a sweet tooth. I love chocolate but white chocolate preferably white chocolate because of the creamy texture and milky taste. Chocolate brings so much joy into my life and it has been a solace especially during stressful times. It has always been there to offer one the much needed sweetness and happiness that you so badly need. While doing this post I remembered how back in high school me and my friends used to make chocolate , well a version of it though. I am sure most you have tried it , so the three key ingredients we used were sugar , margarine and cocoa. We binged on it every single day , good old memories.
Chocolate bark is one of my favorite snack and I have to indulge in it every week. They are chunks filled with toppings of your choice , easy to make , sweet (of course) and the ingredients are easy to source. It is what I term as a type of dish that doesn’t require any formal guideline on how to make it , in other words it is a laid back one.
When adding the toppings it is good to be unique and adventurous because the possibilities of toppings and flavors are endless. Add in what you like do not restrict yourself , from the pictures below you will notice I went all in . I added all the sugary products that I like. Make yourself happy , think outside the box and bring out the inner child in you. Let the different toppings you add elevate your taste buds. The chocolate barks can be used to gift your loved ones during special occasions. Fill it in a mason jar and present it in a small gift box. Spread the love in a chocolatey way.
As I said there are different toppings you can add such as pistachios,dried cherries, peanuts, oreos, chopped macadamia nuts, broken chunks of granola bar, rice cereal ,mini marshmallows, graham crackers, sunflower, pumpkin and sesame seeds , raisins, currants, chopped dates, figs and apricots.
2 cups of white chocolate chips
¾ cup of sprinkles
Sweet chewy gum balls
Melt the chocolate chips by placing a bowl on a saucepan. The sauce pan should have abit of water just enough to touch the bottom of the bowl. Bring the water to simmer ensure you stir until the chocolate has completely melted.
Using a greaseproof paper line the baking pan. Trickle some sprinkles that will be your base.
Then pour in the melted chocolate slowly. Using a spatula spread it well.
Sprinkle the toppings while the chocolate is still soft. Add in as much as u want.
Refrigerate the bark for two hours.
Cut it into preferred shapes and sizes.
Finally garnish it with more sprinkles.
Do store it in mason jars or ven in airtight containers. I enjoyed making it and more so eating it.
Thank you for stopping by.
