Toast and Marmalade chocolate slices

I adore quality handmade chocolate bars. Especially unusual flavours such as my Toast and Marmalade Slices. If I added up the hours of my life spent dreaming up exciting gifts made with chocolate, I could probably have grown a cocoa tree plantation to feed my addiction. These Toast and Marmalade chocolate slices do make a wonderful homemade gift for him or her. But, also, they are a great handmade chocolate treat to offer your guests with a steaming cup of tea.

Give them a go, they are super easy to make and taste absolutely divine. Don’t worry these toast and marmalade slices are NOT stuffed with stale bread and sticky marmalade. Instead, they are full of crispy textures and peel. I’ll walk you through my step by step recipe for a perfect result.

How To Make Toast and Marmalade chocolate slices

Ingredients

  • 200g Milk chocolate
  • 2 large Butter Galettes (28g)
  • 1 Krisproll
  • 4 butter crisps
  • 20g cut mixed peel

 

Method

Cover a baking tray with 2 sheets of cling film.

Break up the chocolate into small places and place in a heat proof bowl. Place over a saucepan of barely simmering water to melt.

Meanwhile, prepare your butter crisps by using a rolling pin to gently crush them.

Use a knife or your fingers to break up the more gentle Butter Galettes.

And finally, do the same to the Krisproll.

Keep an eye on your chocolate. It should melt slowly and gently.

Once melted, tip the Krisproll and the Butter Galettes into the chocolate (leave back the Butter Crisps for the top) and stir through.

Tip the crunchy chocolate mix onto the cling film. Spread the ‘toast’ piece evenly, but don’t mess with the chocolate mix too much (chocolate has a sensitive soul and can easily de-temper).

Now sprinkle over all those sweet Butter Crisps along with the jewel like mixed peel.

Leave to harden overnight in a place away from direct heat or leave in the fridge for a few hours until set.

Now cut into slices. I cut it into 15 pieces, but you can have them whatever size suits you.

I used clear bags, golden ribbon and brown card tags to dress these bejewelled treats up. They don’t need anything more.
