A chocolate bar is a delicacy made mostly of chocolate with layers or combinations of wafers, nuts, fruit, caramel, and nougat. Another name for a flat, breakable chocolate bar is a tablet. 

There are numerous processes involved in making a chocolate bar from raw cocoa components, such as refining, conching, and tempering. Though, it is impossible to pinpoint the exact moment that the first chocolate bar was created. 

The 18th century saw the consumption of solid chocolate. The contemporary chocolate business began to take shape in the 19th century, and most of the current manufacturing methods were developed at this time.

The three basic kinds of chocolate are milk, white, and dark. Since the beginning of the chocolate industry, ingredients other than cocoa have been added to bars, usually to lower production costs. One can try these six homemade chocolate bars if they have a habit of staying up late. 

Try These 6 Choco Bars To Make For Midnight Cravings

1. Dark Chocolate Bar

If you are craving something rich, satisfying, and slightly sweet. Try making this as it is deep, dark chocolate (70%+) balanced by the sweetness of honey and the nutty crunch of sunflower, pumpkin, and chia seeds. Just microwave the ingredients and set them together. You can also experiment with different seed combinations, like flaxseed for extra omega-3s or hemp seeds for a nutty taste. 

2. Berry Chocolate Bar

It is perfect if you are craving a fruity, slightly tart, and creamy taste. It is sweet white chocolate with freeze-dried raspberries and blueberries. The smooth chocolate and the berries add to the delightful experience. One can add dried cranberries or cherries with melted dark chocolate for a more decadent taste. It can be made as a chocolate smoothie, too. 

3. Mint Chocolate Bar

For a refreshing, cool, and slightly sweet taste. Try a mint bar. The taste of it is deep and dark with the cool, minty flavour of melted peppermint bark. It is the most trending flavour among students, too. One can add some crushed candy canes or drops of peppermint extract to the melted chocolate. Also, pop rocks in the mixture or as a topping makes it more fun. 

4. Tropical Chocolate Bar

If you want to taste sweet, fruity, and with a satisfying crunch. Take some white chocolate with chopped dried mango and toasted macadamia nuts. Add, microwave and set for a beautiful flavour burst. To enhance the tropical vibe, consider adding a sprinkle of shredded coconut or white chocolate with some pineapple extract.

5. Nutty Chocolate Bar

This is perfect for rich, chocolatey, and peanut buttery. Milk chocolate is blended with smooth peanut butter. The sweetness of the chocolate complements the rich nuttiness of the peanut butter perfectly. Chopped peanuts or other nuts like almonds or cashews can add extra texture and protein. Drizzle with a bit of honey or maple syrup. Try this for recreating nutty dairy milk at home. 

6. Salted Caramel Chocolate Bar

If you love caramel then you should definitely make this. It is made with strong, dark chocolate with rich caramel sauce and a sprinkle of sea salt. The contrasting flavours of sweet, salty, and bitter create a complex and satisfying taste sensation. For a more rich taste, you can add additional caramel sauce or sprinkle flaked sea salt. Also, a few chopped dried dates will do wonders as a garnish.
