Choc Rocks.

The season of Easter is upon us, despite the weather feeling more like Christmas, and as a non-religious person that means it is Chocoholiday time! So I have been in the kitchen melting the lovely stuff and turning it into variations of itself, and licking the occasional spoon of course. (Hygiene, sshhhh, it’s only for us to eat!)

We bought home some fabulous peanut butter fudge from Treats at Center Parcs last weekend, so I thought we would have a go at making some. And since nothing was ever made worse by adding chocolate, I stuck some of that in too!

Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Ingredients.

375g can of condensed milk
300g of dark or milk chocolate
25g of butter
50g of crunchy peanut butter
100g of icing sugar

Break up the chocolate and add to a pan with the condensed milk, butter and peanut butter. Stir over a gentle heat until completely melted. Beat in the sifted icing sugar. Transfer to a tray and chill for at least an hour before cutting into chunks.

Then we made our own Easter Chocolate Slab. I saw Lorraine Pascal make something like this on telly in the run up to Christmas. It looked easy but effective so I thought we would have a go.

Easter Chocolate Slab


Ingredients We Used
300g Milk Chocolate
100g Dark Chocolate
200g white chocolate
sugar butterflies
However- you can use any combo of chocolate and toppings you like – dried fruits make it healthy (!), nuts are good, we opted for pastel coloured sugar treats for an Easter/Spring feel!

We melted the milk and plain chocolate together (a compromise between the adult and child preferences in the house!) and poured it onto a baking tray covered in greaseproof paper and fashioned it into an egg-ish shape. We then melted the white chocolate and poured it on top, swirling the edges with a cocktail stick. Next we decorated the slab with sugar butterflies. You then just leave the chocolate to re-harden before removing from the paper backing.

You could leave it in giant slab form, and wrap it in a big sheet of cellophane and ribbons for a fab gift. But I needed to share it around, so I broke it into funky looking shards, and then filled cellophane cones with some more of the sugar butterflies, some of the chocolate shards, and fudge, then tied with a ribbon and a chick for Easter kitchness! Perfect pressies!
