Chocolate Bark

This recipe is as easy as it gets and therefore ideal (with assistance) to make with kids. A holiday activity if you will. You can add anything to it really, including your kids favourite treats. What i’m saying is, you can’t really go wrong. I opted for grown up toppings when I made this,because we were at my mum’s and she was giving my kids WHATEVER they wanted anyway.

Whilst I type this, my daughter is singing at the top of her lungs whilst lying next to me. The mere fact that she is lying down is a miracle and so i am grateful that she isn’t in fact sat on my head..although the lying down may be because it is 6 am. My son is fast asleep. 🙂

I woke up to a horrible realisation this morning.. for the first time in my life, we have run out of teabags. Those who know me, know i’m partial to a brew and the thought of starting my day without one brings me out in a panic. There is no alternative as far as I’m concerned. So i’m sat here with head banging, daughter singing, hood over my ears dreaming about some dark chocolate bark.

I could of course have added layers and depth to this recipe, but why over complicate it? Sometimes, I just want plain chocolate with any topping i desire!

Ok, my husband just did the sweetest thing. He popped in from work with some tea bags! So I’m off for that brew.
