Ever wished you could just bake up a batch of your favourite chocolate bar?
Well, luckily for us, super talented food bloggers have been busy recreating these 11 home-made versions of our favourite chocolate treats…
Sea Salted Fruit and Nut Chocolate Bark
The idea is the same - rich chocolate with dried fruit and nuts set in it - but this one, from the blog Alaska From Scratch, has a twist. There are dried cherries, ginger and almonds, and then all that sweetness is given an edge with a sprinkling of sea salt.
Homemade Walnut Whips
If you didn’t know better, you’d think that Walnut Whips would be really tricky to recreate at home. I mean, how do you get all that fluffy stuff inside the chocolate shell? Luckily for us, Helen from The Crazy Kitchen has cracked it with this incredible home-made ‘cheat’s’ version.
Homemade Jaffa Cakes
Kimberly Low decided to make her own version of these chocolate-orange biscuits, inspired by the original. Check out the recipe, along with step by step photos and instructions on her blog.
Homemade Snickers Bars
“I’m not even going to waste your time trying to convince you to whip up a batch because, uhhh…. look at them,” says Jessica, from How Sweet It Is. “They are irresistible. Literally… considering they ruined two of my family members’ January diets.” Get the recipe for these gorgeous-looking home-made Snickers bars on her blog.
Homemade, Healthy Mars Bars
Here, Michelle from Peachy Palate has given the good old Mars Bar a bit of a healthy makeover and paleo-fied it, using all natural ingredients. Gone are refined sugars and milky chocolate, she’s used raw ingredients such as cacao, dates and cashews.
Homemade Toffee Crisp Bars
When Jenny from the blog Mummy Mishaps decided to recreate a Toffee Crisp, she whipped up this home-made version using just four ingredients. Four ingredients, people. Get the full recipe on her blog.
Homemade Peanut Butter M&Ms
Who wouldn’t want these? They were created by John and Dana from Minimalist Baker, and to make them you need just six ingredients. “These M&Ms were SO so so so delicious,” writes Dana. “I offered them up at a recent party with friends and they got snatched up before the fancy dark chocolate squares did.”
Healthy, Homemade Ferrero Rocher Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles
Here’s another chocolate favourite made healthy - homemade chocolate hazelnut truffles from The Foodie Teen. Alessandra has made them with dark chocolate - and they each have a whole hazelnut in the centre for crunch, too.
Dark Chocolate and Salted Caramel Twix Bars
This homemade version of the Twix bar looks quite difficult to make, but actually it’s easy once you know how. And Ashley from Baker By Nature, has changed them up a bit by using dark chocolate and finished them off with a sprinkling of sea salt, too. Just what it needed, right?
Chocolate Covered Honeycomb
A lot like a Crunchie bar, this. Home made honeycomb, left to set and then covered in chocolate. Get the recipe on the blog Parsley, Sage and Sweet.
The good thing about making your own chocolate buttons is that you can make them to whatever size you need, for example, to decorate a cake. You can also play around with different types and flavours of chocolate, too. Find these chocolate button making tips at Cake Spa.
Home Made Bounty Bars
There’s nothing complicated about these chocolate covered coconut bars, from Louise at Lick The Spoon. You’ll need just five ingredients to make them. And guess what? There’s no cooking, either. Win.
