The taste and beauty of a homemade chocolate bar is something else. Instead of buying chocolates with additives, preservatives, and nuts that you might not like, you can easily make your own chocolate bar. Your personalised chocolate bar will have just the right balance between dark and milk chocolate and all your favourite toppings.

But just melting chocolate and adding the usual oats or nuts are a thing of the past. There are many more interesting ways in which you can elevate your usual chocolate bark. Be it adding melt-in-mouth caramel balls or adding edible flowers, your chocolate bark will be your canvas. Excited? Read on and explore the ways you can make your chocolate bark indulgent.

Rose Petal And Pistachio

To add a floral touch to your chocolate bark, you can add dried rose petals. The rose petals will not only make your chocolate bark aromatic and flavourful but also add a beautiful pink colour. The chopped pistachio will balance out the flavour and also add a crunch to the chocolate. You can also add more flavours like peppermint or nuts like almond to the floral chocolate bark.

An indulgent way of elevating your chocolate bark is to add some caramel balls to it. You can make some caramel balls by using caramel sauce or charring sugar from scratch. But ensure that you mix the balls evenly throughout the chocolate bar so that you get an impeccable experience eating the chocolate. You can also add some rock salt if you like to balance out the sweetness of caramel.

Swirled White Chocolate

If you want to make your chocolate bark the way it would look, as if a professional would have made it, you can swirl in some white chocolate. With the beautiful shades of dark, milk, and white chocolate moving across the bark, you can get a heavenly taste. Just remember to balance the sweetness, as white and milk chocolate will be on the sweeter end when mixed together.

Mint And Lavender

You might have tasted mint chocolates on a specific occasion. But when you’re making chocolate bark at home, you can add the refreshing flavour of mint anytime, especially during the summer season. Alongwith the cool flavours of chopped mint leaves, you can also infuse the bark with lavender. You can either add dried lavender petals or extract to infuse into the melted chocolate.

Spices And Fruits

Another interesting way to elevate your usual chocolate bark is to experiment with spices like cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, or even chilli flakes. You can also add a citrus twist to the chocolate by adding orange or lemon zest. Or, if you want to go for a safe option, you can always add some dried fruits like cranberries, raspberries, or even mangoes. All you need to remember is to add your favourites, have fun while making, and enjoy the flavours.
