During December we will be adding a small chocolate gift to our orders, which we hope will be used to try out one of our delicious recipe ideas found below.
If you don’t like or can’t eat chocolate you can always give your creation as a gift to someone special you think would enjoy it.
The recipes are relatively simple and quick to make, but if you don’t feel for making anything the chocolate is also perfectly tasty on its own.
All the recipes require that you to melt the chocolate. This can be done in the microwave or on the stove.
Break the chocolate into pieces and place in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds, take out and stir, then heat for another 30 seconds and stir. Heat for an additional 10 seconds if it hasn’t melted completely.
Break the chocolate into pieces and place in a glass bowl. Bring a pot of water to boil and remove it from the heat. Place the bowl above the pot and ensure the water doesn’t touch the bowl. Stir until the chocolate has melted.
We recommend to use a microwave if possible as this is the easiest option.

The possibilities are endless with this recipe as you choose the toppings. If you have kids they will surely have fun making this with you.

Place a sheet of baking paper on a baking tray
Melt the chocolate and pour it into the tray
Using a spoon, spread the chocolate out (the shape doesn’t matter)
The chocolate should be spread out evenly and should be about half a centimetre thick
Add your choice of toppings to the chocolate and leave to set.
Once set break the chocolate into shards/pieces
