As Mother’s Day approaches, many of us search for that perfect gift to express our love and appreciation. While flowers and cards are always thoughtful, why not surprise her this year with something homemade and delicious? Chocolate bark is tasty, easy to make and guaranteed to impress. And when it comes to quality chocolate, Sephra Belgian Chocolate takes this sweet treat to a whole new level.
I prepared two different flavours because chocolate this good never lasts long! For the first bark (pictured above), I used Sephra Belgian White Chocolate. I divided the chocolate in half and coloured one half with Pink Oil-Based Chocolate Colouring. Then, I swirled the two chocolates together using a Skewer to achieve a marbled effect. I topped it with Evolved Freeze Dried Raspberries and Mini Marshmallows for a delightful crunchy and chewy blend. As for the other bark, I again used Sephra Belgian White Chocolate. This time, I incorporated Mini Marshmallows and caramel popcorn, resulting in a delicious combination.
How to make your own Chocolate Bark
To start, gather your ingredients. You’ll need Sephra Belgian Chocolate, which boasts a rich and luxurious flavour that’s perfect for chocolate bark. Choose from Dark, Milk, or White Chocolate, depending on Mum’s preference. You’ll also want to gather an assortment of toppings to add texture and flavour to your bark. Think nuts, Marshmallows, sweets, pretzels, popcorn, and even a sprinkle of sea salt for that perfect balance of sweet and savoury. There really is no right or wrong here! Add all of mum’s favourites to create her the perfect chocolate treat.
Once you have everything you need, it’s time to get creative in the kitchen. Begin by melting the Sephra Belgian Chocolate, taking care to stir it until smooth and glossy. Then, pour the melted chocolate onto a greaseproof paper-lined baking sheet, spreading it into an even layer with a spatula.
Now comes the fun part – decorating your chocolate bark! Sprinkle your chosen toppings generously over the melted chocolate, getting creative with your combinations. Whether Mum has a sweet tooth for Mini Fudge Squares, Milk Chocolate Beans, or Crunchy Honeycomb Chunks, there’s no wrong way to top your bark.
When you’re happy with your Chocolate Bark, pop it in the fridge to set. Once the chocolate has hardened, it’s time to break it into pieces. Channel your inner chocolatier and snap the bark into rustic shards. Package your chocolate bark in a pretty box or tin, tie it with a ribbon, and voila – you have a homemade gift that’s sure to delight Mum on her special day.
Whether enjoyed with a cup of tea in the morning or as a sweet after-dinner treat, homemade chocolate bark made with Sephra Belgian Chocolate is a gift from the heart that Mum will is sure to love. So this Mother’s Day, skip the store-bought sweets and show Mum just how much you care with this easy homemade treat.
