Prep Time:15 mins

Cook Time:3 mins

Yield: approx. 160g (5.6oz) chocolate (candy) bar

Want to create your own custom chocolate (candy) bars but don’t know where to start? This copycat/homemade/DIY Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Marvellous Creations recipe is a great place to start.

Ingredients:

  • approx. 160g cadbury dairy milk chocolate, chopped and divided into ¾ and ¼
  • 1 tsp popping candy
  • approx. 5 tbsp candy beans (mini smarties or M&M’s)
  • 4 jelly tots, chopped into 4

Directions:

  1. Melt ¾ of the chocolate either over a double boiler or in the microwave on half power in 30 second bursts until approx. ¾ melted with small lumps remaining. Stir continuously with a rubber spatula until completely melted.
  2. With the remaining ¼ chopped chocolate, place one chunk at a time into the melted chocolate and continue stirring until melted. Repeat this process until the chocolate chunks added get to a point where they won’t melt any further. Remove the chunk [and eat it].
  3. Add the popping candy, candy beans and jellies to the chocolate and mix in gently until completely coated in the chocolate. If air bubbles appear, tap the bowl onto a sturdy surface allowing them to raise to the top and gently swirl your spatula in a figure of 8 motion to pop them.
  4. Working quickly, pour the chocolate mixture evenly into the chocolate mould. Tap the mould down quite harshly so the chocolate fills the corners and crevices of the mould evenly. If any further air bubbles rise, pop them with a toothpick.
  5. Remove any access chocolate from the side of the mould with a dry paper if still molten, or scrape with a toothpick if set.
  6. Transfer the chocolate mould to the refrigerator and allow to set completely.
  7. Remove the chocolate from the mould when the chocolate is still refrigerator cold.
  8. Enjoy cold or allow to reach room temperature.

    Look at the gorgeous shine on that chocolate! Way to go, girl! I have never seen that kind of popping candy before. Here in the States we have Pop Rocks; comes in all sorts of fruity flavors. I’m sure it’s about the same thing. I’m loving the other candies, too, especially their funny-sounding names (jelly tots, how cute!). Thanks for the great tutorial; now I don’t have to be afraid of tempering chocolate any more!

      Try local sweet stores or perhaps eBay? The American version is called Pop Rocks. You should be able to find it somewhere, but it might take a little hunting. It’s pretty new to Tesco’s. Just keep an eye out I guess?

      Thanks for stopping by.

        I didn’t, but I went and had a peek and saw their RT. Thanks so much for tweeting it. I’m glad Dairy Milk saw it, I didn’t even think to tweet it to them myself, so thanks so much for doing that.

        And thanks for stopping by too. :)

      I’m pretty sure the spatula was imported from the US anyway, so you should be able to find it locally or online for a better price than I paid. And the chocolate moulds seem to be everywhere these days too. I’ll be picking up some more silicone ones so they can go in the dishwasher too.

      Thanks for stopping by, Paula.

      I’ll send you a bar soon. 😉 But in the meantime why not create one yourself with pop rocks, mini M&M’s or Reeses Pieces and any type of chopped up jelly sweets. :)

    That is awesome Lisa!! Oh how I miss real Cadbury chocolate. The stuff they sell in the states just doesn’t taste the same….and no flakes. :( I was just thinking about making chocolate frogs yesterday, and now I have the perfect tutorial to follow….thank you!! :)

      Thanks Lisa. You would think that since Kraft took over Cadbury that the chocolate would taste the same there. But making your own chocolate bars is so much fun, and you can control whatever you want in there too! :) Win, win.

      There is a more in-depth chocolate tempering post. Do let me know how you get on with your chocolate frogs, I’d love to see them.

      And no flakes? #shocking Looks like you might be in need of a care package. 😉
