"A Chocolate Snack or 2!"



Ok I really couldn't help myself, as Easter is so close I love to make all kinds of chocolaty sweet things. Plus I also do a lot of babysitting for my brother and sisters children which if you have kid's im sure you know they love to get messy and cook! I think it's just the messy part really.

So ive got so pretty easy chocolaty snacks that im hoping you all will try.

****** Chocolate Nibbles ******

Now these are nice if you're watching a movie, or reading a book just to have a nibble on hence the name I called them.

And the best thing about them they couldn't be easier to make!

*** Ingredients ***

125g / 4 ½ oz milk chocolate
75g / 2 3/4 oz mini marsh mellows (or large ones cut up)

You will also need 1 flat baking tray and a sheet of grease proof paper or a baking sheet
1 wooden spoon
1 large mixing bowl
1 sauce pan

*** First ***

Line the baking tray with the grease proof paper or baking sheet.

*** Second ***

Break the milk chocolate into small pieces and place into a large mixing bowl. Then place the bowl over a simmering saucepan, and stir gently until the chocolate has melted. Remember keep it at a low heat!

*** Third ***

Now the chocolate has melted stir in the mini marsh mellows, make sure there very well covered in the chocolate.

*** Fourth ***

Place heaped teaspoons of the mixture onto your baking or greaseproof paper and leave sweets to chill in to refrigerator until they have set.

*** Fifth ***

Carefully now they have set remove them from the baking sheet, and place on a nice plate and share them out, or if your like me cuddle up in bed watching a movie while having a munch hehe.

*** Variations ***

Ok now there are so many things you can do with this, I couldn't possibly list them all.

1. If you not sensitive to nuts add some chopped walnuts to your mixture you would need 25g / 1oz and add a bit more milk chocolate.

2. If you like dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate just change it over same with while chocolate.

3. Another thing what I like doing is chopping up some fresh strawberries in with the marsh mellows. (its one of my person favourites) I promise you its so simple but tastes lovely.

And why stop there add different fruits or nuts this is really a snack to make your own.

****** Chocolate Fudge ******

Ok so this a dish you find easy or hard, so im here to prove it's a easy dish to make and a great snack if your sweet tooth is playing up.

*** Ingredients ***

500g / 1lb 2 oz Dark Chocolate
75g 2 ¾ oz unsalted butter
400g / 14 oz canned condensed milk
½ tsp spoon vanilla essence

You will also need 20cm / 8 inch square cake tin
1 large saucepan
1 wooden spoon

*** First ***

Lightly grease your cake tin, and put to one side. Break the chocolate into pieces and place into your large saucepan with the butter and condensed milk. Heat gently, and slowly stirring until everything has come together, remember do not allow it to boil.

*** Second ***

Remove from the heat, and then beat in your vanilla essence for about 5 minutes until the mixture becomes think and creamy. Pour into your cake tin and leave to chill in your refrigerator until the fudge feels firm to touch.

*** Third ***

Tip the fudge out onto a cutting board and cut into squares then eat up!

*** Variations ***

Again with fudge don't be scared to try things.

1. Add alittle rum to your mixture (which is my Nan's favourite thing to do)

2. Change it to fruit & nut by adding 50g / 1 ¾ oz roughly choppers hazelnuts and the same amount of sultanas.

Please don't be scared to play round, you can come up with great tasting food, by adding new things. Plus it's really fun too hehe.

Thanks for reading how to make some of my favourite snacks
