SummarySweet revenge. Both sinful and addictive. So simple and incredibly festive.

Ingredients

  • 500 grams of good quality dark chocolate – I recommend TJ’s Pound Plus varieties/In India, you can use Morde Dark Chocolate
  • 1-2 tbsp instant coffee
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 15-20 hard toffee candies, such as Werther’s or Alpines
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup raisins (optional)
  • Nestle milk powder (optional)

Instructions

  1. Crush hard toffee candies into small bits and set aside. I used a rolling pin, which was incredibly tough. I recommend going for power tools here.
  2. In a double boiler, melt your dark chocolate. As it melts, add the instant coffee, vanilla essence, and salt. Keep stirring it and watch it closely, as burnt chocolate is no good.
  3. Once completely melted, add the 3/4 of the toffee chunks and raisins (optional). Mix well until everything is evenly coated.
  4. Pour the chocolate mixture on a large wax-paper-covered cookie sheet. Spread into a thin layer using a spoon or wooden spatula.
  5. Sprinkle the top with chopped walnuts, more toffee bits, and a dusting of milk powder.
  6. Place in the fridge and let it set for about 1 hour.
  7. Once set, remove the chocolate from the fridge. Lift up the edges of the wax paper and fold them inwards, breaking up the chocolate into uneven shards of chocolate bark.
  8. Share and enjoy!20131105-220854.jpg
