    White chocolate

    why-t chok-lit

    To purists, this is not chocolate because it is made only from the fat or butter of the cacao…

  • food colouring gel of your choice (we used pink, purple, blue, yellow and green)
  • 1-2 tsp hundreds and thousands
  • 1 tbsp jelly sweets
  • 4 tsp mini marshmallows


  1. Measure all your ingredients into separate bowls. Heat the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-sec bursts until melted, stirring each time. Or put it in a heatproof bowl set over (but not touching) a pan of simmering water (an adult should help with this bit). Stir frequently until the chocolate has melted smoothly. 

  2. Pour the melted chocolate into four or five small bowls. Use the food colouring to dye the chocolate in the colours you like best. Food colouring can be very strong, so start by adding a tiny amount, mixing well, then add more if you like.

  3. Line a large tray or board with baking parchment and spoon the different coloured chocolates onto the parchment in puddles, in any order you like. The different colours should start to join up and become one big puddle.

  4. Use a skewer or a cocktail stick to swirl the colours together, but don’t swirl too much, otherwise the colours will blend into one. Gently shake the tray from side to side to help the chocolate sit in an even layer and fill in any gaps.

  5. Decorate with your sprinkles, sweets and marshmallows. Leave the chocolate to set in a cool place, or overnight, until set hard. Then break it into pieces and place in gift boxes lined with baking parchment. Will keep in the fridge for up to a week.

So simple but looks so special. I used white chocolate chips so it melted even faster. Also used a spatula to swirl the chocolate round to join it up and make a pattern. Will definitely be doing again.

It looks so special! I put shards of it on top of cupcakes and also am going to box some up as a gift!

Not as easy as it looks! Our chocolate seized! It rapidly turned into a consistancy akin to play doh. After googling tips about how to melt white chocolate successfully and how to rescue seized chocolate, i might give this another go without the kids about!

Can this be made in one day and in the morning will be ready to eat

This will harden quite quickly as long as it is cold, so yes you can make it and eat it on the same day as long as you put it in the fridge or somewhere equally cold to harden for a few hours. I hope this helps.
