Such a fun Christmas recipe, delicious and super easy to make!
Its beginning to feel a lot like Christmas…….there is nothing quite like the taste of candy canes to make you come over all Christmassy! I am delighted to begin to share with you all the fun recipes I enjoy making at Christmas time.
We have a family tradition of our tree and Christmas decorations going up on December 1st so it has been a bit of a treat getting a few things down from the attic space to play with for these photos.
I discovered this recipe last year – and made it even tastier this year with the addition of the dark chocolate as the base. It takes it from delicious to divine! You can of course omit the dark chocolate or change it to Milk Chocolate if you prefer but I like how it looks too!
When I am making recipes like this I always use blocks of chocolate that I enjoy eating rather than cooking chocolate. Sure it looks good but its got to taste good too right? So use your favourite block of chocolate and you will be so impressed with the difference!
There is no point trying to cut this with a knife, I tend to just break it up into shards and it forms a rough bark looking shape hence the name!
If you are making this for a crowd you can easily double or triple this recipe and make in a roasting dish – it will go down well wherever you take it!
In order to smash up your candy canes you can do as I have done with a bag and a rolling pin or briefly pulse them in a food processor. As long as there are several different shapes and sizes it will be delicious! If you have some green and red mini smarties or pebbles then these look good too and very Christmassy.
