Ingredients

    Milk chocolate squares

    Milk chocolate

    Milk chocolate is classically made from dark chocolate of low cocoa solid content and a higher…

  • 2 x 90g packs mini chocolate eggs
  • 1 heaped tsp freeze-dried raspberry pieces – or you could use crystallised petals

Method

  1. Break the chocolate into a large heatproof bowl. Bring a pan of water to a simmer, then sit the bowl on top. The water must not touch the bottom of the bowl. Let the chocolate slowly melt, stirring now and again with a spatula. For best results, temper your chocolate (see tip).

  2. Meanwhile, lightly grease then line a 23 x 33cm roasting tin or baking tray with parchment. Put three-quarters of the mini eggs into a food bag and bash them with a rolling pin until broken up a little.

  3. When the chocolate is smooth, pour it into the tin. Tip the tin from side to side to let the chocolate find the corners and level out. Scatter with the smashed and whole mini eggs, followed by the freeze-dried raspberry pieces. Leave to set, then remove from the parchment and snap into shards, ready to pack in boxes or bags.

There's not much to this really, but it does transform basic chocolate into a festive treat! I didn't have freeze dried raspberries but used sprinkles instead and it looked lovely.

I made this at the weekend with our five year old son, it was very easy to make and apart from the melting of the chocolate my son was in charge of this creation. He loved bashing the mini eggs and took great care and attention when decorating the top of the bark. He was very proud to hand it around to our friends when they arrived later that day and the bowl was very quickly emptied. A very easy activity to do with young children and tasty too!
