CHOCOLATE BARK | AFFORDABLE KIDS PARTY FAVOURS


  Nothing like a home made party favour, right? I've always taken massive inspiration from the amazing Briar Stanley, author of Sunday Collector and delightful contributor to The Beetle Shack when it comes to kids parties and all related entities. The woman is a genius with colour, style and food. How good does this Chocolate Bark look?

I wanted to share an easy and inexpensive treat idea that is perfect to make with young ones, and a tasty indulgence for kids and adults to enjoy....




This recipe was originally made as an Easter treat but can be adapted to suit any occasion.


Step One
Line a tray with baking paper and pour melted chocolate of your choice, spreading it around until the slab is about 1cm thick. I chose a mixture of milk, dark and white chocolate. Don’t worry about getting chocolate all the way to the edges of the tray, a bit of mess is ok.

 Step Two
Here’s the fun part! Decorate the melted chocolate with your choice of ‘topping’. I chose crunchy m&m’s (that look like easter eggs), sliced up bounty bar and sprinkles. I then topped it off with splashes of melted white chocolate. Place the chocolate slab/tray in the fridge for over 4 hours, until the chocolate concoction is set, rock hard.

Step Three
Break up the chocolate in to ‘bark’ pieces with a knife. You should be able to pierce the slab with the tip of the knife, allowing the cracking to happen naturally, giving you a much nicer finish than actual slicing.

Step Four
I packaged the chocolate bark in to striped paper bags I purchased from a $2 shop. I made the bunny ear shape by simply cutting the shape with scissors and securing the top of each scrunched bag with some bakers twine. Seriously, too easy.

Enjoy – and make sure you let me know if you make this at home, would love to see how your version turns out!
