I know I've made chocolate bark before, and I remember something made with Maltesers, but it hit me that this bark would be a splendid idea! And to be frank ("I told you not to call me Frank!"), I'm looking at something quick for an Easter post. April is going haywire. Birthdays, and blog posts, and writing competitions, and overnight guests etc etc ...
My cousin sent us a lovely little Easter parcel with gloriously dark chocolate, so let's melt it and smother it in broken-up Maltesers, folks. I was going to use puffed rice thinking it would be 'healthier' than rice cereal but checking the ingredients, I found the Rice Bubbles to be 91% white rice, whereas the puffed rice is 79% rice flour. Mmm, I didn't like the sound of that, so Rice Bubbles it was. Maybe it doesn't matter, but who knows?
|chocolatey ricy blingy!
300g./10.5 oz chocolate - Use milk, dark, white, ruby - your fave!
150g./5.3 oz Maltesers, smashed up
20g./0.7 oz puffed rice cereal
Lots of Bling!
First melt your chocolate - I do it in the microwave
Spread it over a baking paper-lined tray
Throw the smashed up Maltesers, the rice cereal and lots of bling all over the chocolate
Whack into the fridge to set, then chop up/break it up as you please
Wrap in cellophane for a lovely Easter gift
Lindt 70% dark chocolate is my go-to, but go ahead, make your day! Use your fave kind, or use more than one kind and swirl 'em around
I blitzed the Maltesers in the food processor, so I ended up with big bits, little bits and some dust
|oops! I've jumped ahead - melt the chocolate and blitz the Maltesers
|all blinged up
|and ready for cutting/breaking up
|eat 'em up
