  • Author: Sarah | Away From the Box
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 2 hours 10 minutes
  • Yield: 6-12 bars 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 40 oz. chocolate of your choice
  • 4 crushed candy canes
  • Festive sprinkles
  • OR toppings of your choice

Instructions

  1. Place your mold on a sheet pan or other large, flat surface you can easily move.
  2. Gently melt the chocolate, chopped coarsely, either by using a double boiler (a heat proof bowl set over a pot of simmering water) or a microwave in 30 second intervals.
  3. Pour the chocolate into the mold (see notes for details) and gently lift and drop the sheet pan, tapping to release any trapped air. Run a dough scraper along the surface to even it out. Sprinkle your toppings on top and very gently press to make sure it adheres.
  4. Chill in the refrigerator at least 1 hour, or at room temperature for at least 2 hours, until hardened.
  5. Remove from the mold, separate into bars and enjoy!

Notes

40 oz of chocolate will either yield 6 giant bars if you fill the molds completely. If you stop at the dividers (or slightly above) it will yield 12 bars.
