I love Marbling! I love the concept! Especially when I was young and you got to marble and dye white t shirts in school! I find it fascinating when you cut through a marble cake where all the vanilla and chocolate sponge is entwined into one another.
So I used this marbling technique to make some chocolate bark for Diwali and the new year we celebrate. I couldn’t go without making something sweet like this for my first diwali post.
My little one was extremely eagar to help me?!! I wonder why? He sat on the work surface and watched tentatively at the whole bark making process. The only thing he had his eye on, was the shiny silver spoon smothered in melted chocolate! I gave in and he enjoyed licking the spoon clean!
Ps ~ If he wasn’t there I would have done the same lol!
200g plain chocolate
200g white chocolate
⅓ tsp almond extract
Break the white chocolate into pieces and place on a bain marie. Melt the chocolate gently. Once melted turn off the heat but still leave the chocolate over the water
Simultaneously melt the plain chocolate over another bain marie
Line a rectangular dish with some silicone paper. Once both types of chocolate are melted, pour the plain chocolate into the dish
and then the white chocolate on top. Add the almond extract gently
Get a fork and swirl the two types of chocolate into one another and spread it gently as you go along into a rectangular shape
Take a handful of raisins and place them onto the chocolate and then sprinkle the flaked almonds into the gaps
Set aside for a few hours in a cool place. Not in the fridge as this will discolour the chocolate
Once set, break into shards so that the bark looks rustic…gift it quickly if you want to, as you’ll end up eating it faster than you think!
