Nothing says ‘thank you for coming to my wedding’ better than a homemade sweet treat. Wrapped in some cute paper and twine, or boxed up, a homemade chocolate bar is a gorgeous way to treat your guests, whether it’s a wedding, bridal shower or engagement party favour.
Here are the recipes for a Chocolate Bark, and my all-time favourite party treat, Rocky Road.
I made the Clinker Party Chocolate Bark for a cousin’s wedding last month because I wanted to make them something that reflected their fun-loving personalities. With just two ingredients, this recipe is a super-easy option for a couple that adds a splash of colour to their wedding.
The Blushing Bride’s Raspberry Rocky Road is another quick and easy recipe and would work equally well with white chocolate. You could cut it into long bars and wrap it up in paper and ribbon (like I have here), or cut it into small pieces and box it up.
Both recipes can be adapted to suit your wedding – just pick your favourite lollies that best fit your colour scheme and theme.
The Blushing Bride’s Raspberry Rocky Road
Makes 10 large bars or 30 small pieces
350g milk chocolate
1 cup pink marshmallows
1/2 cup raspberry lollies
1/2 cup raspberry licorice, cup into 2 cm pieces
1/3 cup desiccated coconut
1. Line a square slice tin with baking paper.
2. Combine the marshmallows, raspberry lollies, raspberry licorice and coconut in a bowl.
3. Melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds to ensure it doesn’t burn.
4. Once it is smooth and shiny, pour the chocolate into the marshmallow mixture and stir until well combined and all the lollies are coated in chocolate.
5. Immediately pour into the slice tin and refrigerate until set.
Clinker Party Chocolate Bark
Makes 20 pieces
200 grams milk chocolate
1/2 cup Clinkers
1. Line a large slice tin with baking paper.
2. Place the Clinkers into a food processor and process until crushed into a mix of big and small pieces.
3. Melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds to ensure it doesn’t burn. Once it is smooth and shiny, add half of the crushed Clinkers to the chocolate and stir until well combined.
4. Pour the chocolate into the slice tin and use a spoon to ensure it is evenly spread across the tin. Scatter the remaining crushed clinkers over the chocolate. Refrigerate until set and then use a sharp knife to slice.
