Simple Decadence

It is not uncommon (especially while studying) for me to suddenly have a craving for something sweet, and when this happens I often don’t feel like waiting the hour it takes to bake a cake or some muffins. This little treat takes about 5 minutes to make, and only 10 – 15 minutes to set….and too be honest, it tastes and looks like it would need a whole lot more.

1 block of dark chocolate

Sea Salt

Slivered Almonds

(you can use a whole array of things to top it with but I prefer keeping it simples)


Chop up the chocolate finely


Bring a pot of water to boil. Place the chocolate in a large glass bowl and place over the boiling water


When the chocolate begins to melt, stir well to ensure it doesn’t burn


Pour the melted chocolate on to a large piece of baking paper. Lift up the baking paper by two corners, allowing the chocolate to smoothly run flat down the baking paper (this will ensure you don’t have uneven chocolate from trying to spread it with a spatula)


Sprinkle generously with sea salt and the slivered almonds. Place  in the freezer for 10-15 minutes


When the chocolate has hardened, remove from the freezer and crack in to smaller bits
