 Whether homemade Easter Eggs is your thing or chocolate recipes in general, Easter is the time for baking, chocolate and fun! From our Easter Fudge, to our Chocolate Covered Strawberries, it is a sweet tooth lovers dream!

Looking for chocolate recipes? I’ve got you sorted 

You can choose to melt your chocolate on the stove, in the Instant Pot, microwave or Slow Cooker like our Slow Cooker Chocolate Fudge recipe. (I find therapy in slowly melting it in the Slow Cooker) .

What is chocolate bark?

Chocolate bark is the result of taking chocolate, melting it and decorating it with your favourite toppings! The chocolate sets and becomes a colourful tasty treat! 

You can make it in a flat layer and break it into pieces or in small puddles like I have done here. 

Our Halloween Bark, Snowman Chocolate Bark and White Chocolate Bark are all recipes that are done with a particular theme in mind. 

For Easter, I thought it would be a super fun idea to make chocolate puddles for an Easter themed special treat. 

To melt the chocolate in the slow cooker, add it to a heatproof jug, pour water up to the half way line of the chocolate, set the temperature to low and leave the lid off.

Slow Cooker recipes

Using the Slow Cooker to melt chocolate is a simple method. It is not super fast though. If you want to make this recipe is 10 mins then I recommend the microwave or stove top method for melting your chocolate. 

The results of each cooking method will look and taste the same, it only depends on how much time you want to give to the task at hand. 

Please give me a shout if you have questions or make the recipe and want to give feedback.

Melting chocolate in the Slow Cooker just might be the therapy you and I need right now, I’ve got you covered!
