Author Notes: This recipe is fabulous, if you need a last minute Valentine's gift for the chocolate lovers in your life (that includes yourself, of course).
I just love the rustic look of homemade chocolate, broken into big chunks. Besides, it only takes ten minutes to make. That's a winner in my book. Even better, you can go completely nuts with toppings and let your chocolate-creativity run free. You can make your own chocolaterie-display-worthy deliciousness, for a fraction of the price. Convinced yet? Ok! —Maja
Makes a big stash of homemade chocolate
- 7 ounces of good quality chocolate (I often use the leftovers from my baking adventures. Great way to use them up!)
- Add-ins of your choice; think: nuts, dried fruit, coconut flakes, puffed rice...
- Put chopped chocolate in the top part of a double broiler and let melt slowly. Around christmas, I love to add some cinnamon and chili at this point.
- Pour melted chocolate on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Now comes the fun part. Put your favourite nuts, seeds or dried fruit on top. Anything goes! For this recipe, I used roasted almonds and coarse sea salt. Let your creation dry on the baking sheet, then roughly brake into smaller pieces. Done!
