I was going through my good friend Skyes’ blog (http://stonehouseburgundydoor.blogspot.ca – go check it out!) and came across her DIY Valentines Day Chocolate Bark. I’ve never been a huge Valentines Day person, but thought I should be romantic for once and make my boyfriend something (added bonus – I can eat all of it).
I’m not going to lie, it was a really messy afternoon in the t.listed kitchen. There was chocolate everywhere! But everything turned out delicious, so it was well worth it.
I used our ice trays from Ikea – heart and stick shaped. They bend, which makes it easier to get the chocolate out. I don’t know how this would work with non-bendable ice trays.. So if you don’t have one I suggest getting one before making these!
What you’ll need:
– Heart shaped ice trays
– 3 bars of white chocolate (the amount depends on how much you want to make!)
– 3 bars of Hershey’s Cookies and Cream (his favourite)
– 1 package Cadbury Mini Eggs
First, put your Cadbury Mini Eggs in a Ziploc bag and, with a rolling pin, crush them into small pieces.
Once they’re small enough, place them at the bottom of your hearts and sticks. )I also put a little bit into the melted chocolate)
Next, place your chocolate in your double boiler on medium heat and stir until melted and smooth.
Once thoroughly melted and with the help of a spoon, put the melted chocolate into the heart shaped and stick ice trays. When all of them are full, take a knife to smooth out the top.
I melted the Hershey’s Cookies & Cream chocolate and made chocolate sticks with half white chocolate and half cookies & cream (it was the best one!). I wish I made the hearts this way.. So I suggest you mix both chocolates together!
And here is the finished product!
