This chocolate making, I’m getting the hang of it. And I’m loooooving it. So much.
There are so many yummy vegan and healthy chocolates out there. Making it yourself, although more time-consuming then hopping into a shop and grabbing a bark, is so satisfying. And more importantly: there’s absolutely no junk in your choc.
So I got into the kitchen.
The result: a thin and cripsy chocolate bark with sweet cherries and floral hints of rose and lavender with a touch of salt here and there.
Floral cherry raw chocolate bark
- Raw Chololate Making Kit from Elements for Life OR 150 grams dark chocolate
- 100 grams pitted cherries, cut up in quarters
- rose petals (the edible kind, obv)
- dried lavender (also edible)
- pink Himalayan salt
- a chocolate mould, or little ones (you could also just line a baking tray to make your bark on)
- Pat the cherries dry with some paper towel and spread them over your chocolate mould.
- Follow the recipe card of your chocolate making* kit or melt your dark chocolate au-bain-marie.
- Using a spoon, transfer the home-made or melted chocolate into the chocolate mould and spread evenly over the cherries.
- Once all the chocolate is transferred to the mould(s), sprinkle the rose petals, the lavender and the pink salt on top.
- Put in the fridge for at least an hour before diving in. Try to control yourself, it’s worth the wait!
- I prefer my choc bark to be a bit on the bitter side, so I used just 1,5 tbsp sweetner but the amount you use is totally up to you!
