chocolate bark

This is a simple festive treat to make with children. It’s delicious with a cup of coffee, or as an extra sweet treat at teatime. It can also be given as an edible gift, if it ever finds it’s way out of your kitchen…


  • 100g milk chocolate buttons 
  • 100g dark chocolate buttons 
  • 50g sugar and cinnamon almonds 
  • 50g dried fruit of your choice 
  • 2 tablespoons of marshmallows
  • Desiccated coconut (optional)


  • Melt the dark and milk chocolate in separate bowls suspended over pans of gently simmering water, stirring every now and then. 
  • Line a baking tray with baking parchment. Leave the chocolate to cool for 10 mins. 
  • Pour the dark chocolate onto the tray and spread it into a thin rectangle. Drizzle over the milk chocolate and create a swirled pattern by dragging a cocktail stick back and forth across the chocolate. 
  • Scatter over the nuts, fruit, marshmallows and coconut then leave somewhere cool to set. 
  • Break into shards or leave whole. 
  • Eat!…or gift.
