No bake chocolate candy bark

candybark

This is all about turning your favourite sweets into your favourite chocolate bar. No baking is involved and it takes about 5-10 mins to prepare then pop it into the fridge / freezer for 20 minutes and you’re done. This is also a perfect activity for kids on a rainy day without having to actually do any baking whatsoever. It’s not really a recipe in my opinion more of a ‘how to’ So here’s what you will need to create this super sweet, sickly, chocolate creation..
sweets

You will need chocolate and a lot of sweets. Any sweets of your choice.. I choose reeses pieces, teeth and lips, smarties and there’s a few haribo eggs and hearts thrown in there somewhere you know, for good measure. So first off pour all of your sweets on to a plate or into a bowl. Then melt your chocolate either in the microwave if you wish or over a bowl of boiling water on the hob.. remember to stir the chocolate a lot so it doesn’t burn!

After melting the chocolate of your choice either milk, white or dark chocolate carefully pour it onto a plate lined with greaseproof paper. Spread the chocolate out over the plate so its nice and even.. then start decorating you could add anything you want really.. even sprinkles or food colouring. After you’ve finished throwing it all in there decorating leave it to cool on the side or if you want to hurry things along pop it in the fridge or the freezer.

After 20-30 minutes have a look to see if the chocolate has hardened
and if so break it up into generously  sized slabs and enjoy!
(p.s thanks to a beautiful mess for the initial inspiration behind this post)

    Amazing! Never seen anything like this (but I love A Beautiful Mess!). I might have to make some as a present for my boyfriend – he loves sweets and chocolate, so it would be perfect! x

    That's so cute! I might have to do this sometime when I need a sugar rush x

    oh my that looks SO yummy, I think I'd eat all the sweets before I even got the chocolate melted though hahah xx

    This looks so nice! You could do this to make an unusual present for somebody. You'd just need to find a pretty box and line it with funky paper and it would look amazing with the roughly broken up chocolate in 🙂 x

    I love your recipe posts. They're always so cute or excessively indulgent. Exactly what I like to have sitting next to my cuppa tea. Ferrero Rocher cupcakes has zoomed to the top of my list of things to bake.
