Need to top up on pantry essentials?
1. Place a clean bowl over a saucepan of hot water (Bain Marie or double-boiler). Grate the cacao butter, add to the bowl. Stirring with a whisk, heat the cacao butter, allow to melt slowly.
2. Once melted, start to add the cacao powder and syrup one tablespoon at the time and stir in thoroughly with a whisk until dissolved and well incorporated. Finally, add the salt and whisk together.
3. Line three 15x8cm loaf pans or three plastic containers with a baking paper. Pour the chocolate in and let it spread into a thin bark layer. While the chocolate is still soft, add your toppings.
4. Place the chocolate in the fridge for about 1 hour. Keep in an airtight container, in or out of the fridge, depending on how crunchy you like it. It will keep for a few weeks.
