How to make chocolate at home

To make them it was way easier than I thought! My girls love chocolate but I don’t really like giving them the shop bought kind. I know that there are products suitable for kids but I do prefer to make my own.

Total time
Recipe type: Dessert
  • Ingredients:
  • - 150g of pure dark chocolate
  • - 50g un-salted butter
  • - few drops of vanilla essence
  • - raisins(Kara's favourite dry fruit)
  • Dish:
  • - Silicon icing tray with flower shape.
  1. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a bowl on top of a pan with boiling water.
  2. When is melted take of the hob and add the butter and mix continuously. When the butter is melted add the vanilla and the raisins and mix until all integrated.
  3. Pour the chocolate liquid into the silicon tray and put in the fridge or freezer depending how fast you want to eat the chocolate.
  4. As it was quite warm these sat couple of days we kept the chocolate in the fridge and took one out every time we fancied.
  5. Kara helped me to make them although we didn't take any pictures and her verdict was - "Mummy this is the best chocolate ever! Thank you mummy!"
  6. I didn't add any sugar to this recipe as Kara doesn't like things to sugary and I love dark chocolate. However you can add some if you wish to make the chocolate sweeter but I would recommend icing sugar.

    I love the flower shapes and the addition of the raisins. We’ve made chocolate before but using cacao powder and coconut oil. 🙂

    I’m not keen on dark chocolate or raisins but that’s a good thing being on a diet – the Mr’s chocolate is safe haha x
