After some lovely weather recently, it finally feels like summer is in sight! Though British summer's are never really a proper sunny summer... unless we're lucky. But I've heard multiple times that we may be in for a 3 month heat wave? Say whaaaat. As long as it happens after my exams though, nothing worse being stuck in the library revising when it's sunbathing weather outside.
So as summer is approaching, that means possible bikini weather. Now I know all my past posts aren't exactly 'bikini bod' foods but this weeks bake is a little 'healthier' in a way.
Made with dark chocolate (the best for our health out of all chocolates, that does not mean go ahead and eat as much as you like, it is still chocolate) topped with seeds, nuts and berries it has added healthiness. So yes it may look healthier than a standard chocolate because of the trail mix but that does not mean it is healthy to eat the whole lot in one go.
Chocolate Bark is this weeks recipe. It is so easy to make, even kids can do it providing supervision of the parents whilst melting the chocolate.
It's a cheap, easy, quick and a delicious treat that anyone of any ability can make!
I can back up the delicious bit from my flatmate - 'ooh it tastes like something from hotel chocolat!' Now who's not going to want to make something that tastes like that!?
- 200g Dark chocolate (or 400g all dark chocolate if you wish)
- 200g Milk chocolate
- 1 pack of trail mix (or any topping you wish)
- Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
- Break the chocolate into two glass bowls, one for the milk and one for the dark.
- Melt the chocolate over a pan of hot water, or you can microwave it (in a microwavable dish) being careful not to burn it.
- When both lots of chocolate has melted, spoon alternately both chocolates randomly onto the baking sheet.
- Then gently run a fork or knife to mix the chocolate so you get a marble effect.
- Sprinkle with as much trail mix as you like.
- Place in the fridge and allow to set for at least an hour.
- Once set, break up into desired sized pieces.
