For the recipe Valentines Chocolate Slab
|75 g||Dr. Oetker 35% Milk Chocolate|
|75 g||Dr. Oetker 72% Extra Dark Chocolate|
|150 g||Dr. Oetker 26% White Chocolate|
|Dr. Oetker Pink Extra Strong Food Colour Gel|
|Dr. Oetker Chocolate Hearts|
|Dr. Oetker Hundreds and Thousands (Also add some additional decoration/sprinkles of your choice)|
Break the Extra Dark and Milk Chocolate into a heatproof bowl and place over a saucepan of barely simmering water to melt.
Meanwhile, line a baking tray with baking parchment. Once the Chocolate has melted, scrape it out of the bowl on to the centre of the paper using a spatula. Carefully spread the Chocolate to form a rectangle approx. 18 x 23cm (7 x 9 inches). Tap the tray lightly on the work surface to smooth and settle the Chocolate and put in a cool place to set.
Melt the White Chocolate in the same way. Remove the bowl from the water and mix in approx. 35 drops Pink Gel Food Colour to make a pretty pink shade.
Once the Chocolate layer has set, scrape the pink Chocolate out of the bowl on to the centre of the Dark Chocolate. Using a spatula, carefully spread the pink Chocolate to almost cover the Dark Chocolate. Tap the tray lightly on the work surface to smooth and settle the Chocolate.
Working quickly, before the pink Chocolate sets, decorate the top with Dr. Oetker Chocolate Hearts, Dr. Oetker Hundreds and Thousands and some sugar hearts. Then put in a cool place to set firm.
Once the Chocolate is firm, break into pieces and either serve and enjoy as they are or pack pieces into boxes or cellophane bags for gifting.
1 serving = 40g
If the room temperature is warm, put the Chocolate in the fridge for about 30 minutes to set.
