Chocolate Bark!

If you like chocolate, you will love chocolate bark🍫 that is basically tempered ( melted ) chocolate!
The fun is you can choose whether, you want the base to be milk, white or dark chocolate. My preference is bitter sweet chocolate. Also you get to add toppings, like sweet or salty nuts, of your choice and create your own style of chocolate.

I like the toppings to be in  many colours, texture and sweet and salty. You can have fun making it your way and surprising your guests for a little chocolate treat after dinner or just indulge in some yourself:) after all its a chocolate, and who doesn't like some!!
Do try out this very simple but special treat.

Ingredients are very basic

8 ounces chocolate, bitter sweet chocolate
2 ounces of white chocolate
Toppings your choice 
1/4 cup salted peanuts, or your choice of nuts
1/4 cup M&Ms
1/4 tsp or less butter ( optional but I used some just for making sure the chocolate doesn't stick to bowl while tempering)

Melt chocolate

Chocolate Bar

 Doesn't it look yum! so do try out the simple steps and make some.

1. Cut the slab of chocolate, into pieces, put into a microwaveable bowl and microwave at intervals of 20 seconds. .In the first batch, chop approximately 5 ounces of chocolate and temper (melt) in microwave. As it melts, don't over melt.
Add remaining 3 ounces, continue and melt.
2. With the help of a pencil and ruler, mark out a rectangular shape on the parchment paper. Turn the paper and pour the melted chocolate on the side that has no pencil marks.Using a spatula, spread out the melted chocolate in a way that it stays within the marked rectangular shape.
3.Start adding toppings of your choice, while the chocolate is still in melted stage. Lightly press with hands, making sure the toppings get embedded. Now refrigerate fo 2 to 3 hours.
4. Temper some white chocolate, in a bowl in microwave and sprinkle on top of ready cooled chocolate bark.
Cut out shapes using a knife or just by your hand. Enjoy with friends and family, or at parties.
