Chocolate Slab {recipe}

It's my husbands birthday today!
As a stay at home mum/housewife money is tight. I want to spoil him with lots of presents but its simply not doable.
We're away this weekend, I've paid for it using my child allowance which I've saved a little each month. I wanted to give my husband some presents to unwrap and one of his favourite things in the world is....chocolate.
I could go to the shops and buy bars or boxes of chocolates.
But that's too easy.
What says I love you more than chocolates...homemade chocolates! Thats what!

300g dark chocolate
100g milk chocolate
Mini marshmallows*
Chopped hazelnuts*
*You can use any toppings you want.

First melt down the dark and milk chocolate. I placed mine in a glass bowl over the top of a saucepan filled with water and simmering on the hob.
Once the chocolate is melted, take a baking tray, cover with a sheet of greaseproof paper and then spread your chocolate mixture around the sheet. I found it easier to use a ladel to pour and spread the chocolate onto the sheet, rather than pouring it straight from the bowl.
Once you are happy with that start adding your topping.
I first added the mini marshmallows then the hazelnuts and almonds.
Once the chocolate is covered place it in the fridge for around an hour to an hour and a half [or until it has set].
You can either than serve the chocolate as one big slab or do as I have done and break it into smaller pieces and place in a gift box.
Of course you can always make smaller slabs when pouring out the chocolate on to the greaseproof paper.

Easy and delicious!
