Chocolate Avalanche

Happy Wednesday Lovelies!

A little bit of chocolate heaven on the blog today...I first made Chocolate Avalanche over Christmas after seeing it on Rosie's blog & let's just say I was ever so slightly totally addicted. Adding chopped up Crunchie bars to melted chocolate is genius. You can also pretty much chuck anything on top that you love - nuts, dried fruit, candied peel etc. 
Because it's one of those set in the fridge recipes, it's super easy. I must admit, I get so impatient waiting for it to set & have to settle with licking the chocolate bowl until it's ready (cooks perks)! 
The recipe makes a lot, but it keeps really well for a couple of weeks in a plastic tub in the fridge... not that it'll last that long, trust me!

chop up your chocolate & melt

cut up your crunchie bars into chunks

add them to the melted chocolate & give it a stir

roast your pecans in the oven for approx 10 mins & chop

sprinkle the pecans & some dried cranberries onto the choc

on go the pistachios & freeze dried raspberry pieces. Add some sea salt flakes which takes the bitterness out of the chocolate

it's best to cover your baking tray with cling film for easy removal of the chocolate slab

leave to set in the fridge for a few hours

once set, chop up into bite sized chunks

...and enjoy!

 Have a yummy Wednesday Lovelies

Yum! I made this same thing for Christmas 2011 and packaged it up into cute mason jars with ribbon as little token gifts for people. It went down very well I have to say.

You can make it with just about anything thrown in. I did a white chocolate candy cane version too. Soooo good!

Mmm this looks delicious! We don't have Crunchie bars here in the US but I'm sure another candy bar would work!
