Seeded chocolate bark

    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 350g dark chocolate, chopped
    • 4 tablespoons raisins, currants, or sultanas
    • 3 tablespoons sesame seeds
    • 3 tablespoons roasted salted pumpkin seeds
    • 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds (optional)
    • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds (optional)

    Method
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:2min  ›  Ready in:12min 

    1. Place 225g of the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 800 watts for 20 seconds at a time, stirring after each 20 second interval. Once chocolate is nearly melted, but a few chunks remain, stop microwaving and stir till completely smooth. Add the remaining 125g of unmelted chocolate. Stir well till all the chocolate has melted (adding the unmelted chocolate tempers the mixture, and along with stirring results in a glossier finish).
    2. Lay out a large sheet of baking parchment or greaseproof paper on a level work surface. Prepare your seeds and dried fruit and set aside.
    3. Pour the melted chocolate onto the parchment. Using a spatula or fish slice, spread the chocolate evenly till very thin, no thicker than a pound coin.
    4. Working quickly, to avoid having the chocolate set, scatter toppings evenly over the chocolate, starting with the dried fruit. (Chocolate will set quickly, especially if cool in the house!)
    5. Leave the chocolate to set fully. Once set, slice or break into randomly sized pieces and store in an airtight container.

    Tip

    Use a good quality dark chocolate with at least 60% cacao for best results.
