You might not remember, but once upon a time, sweet shops were common on every street and one of the most popular products was chocolate bark. If you have leftover chocolate after Easter, why not create your own?
400g milk or dark chocolate
100g white chocolate
An assortment of sprinkles, raisins, sweets etc
Line a baking tray with parchment and leave to the side.
Break up the dark or milk chocolate into a glass bowl and create a ban-marie by bringing a small saucepan of water to a slow simmer and placing the glass bowl on top. Over a low heat, melt the chocolate slowly. Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate in a microwave in short bursts until it is smooth and glossy.
Pour the melted chocolate over the baking tray and using a large knife spread it evenly. Melt the white chocolate and blob it over the top, use a skewer or something similar to swirl the two together.
Top the bark with your assortment of treats and then leave to set at room temperature. Break into shards and serve.
