Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Marvellous Creations Recipe

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 3 minutes

Yield: 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.


  • approx. 160g (5.6oz) 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 quarters


  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.
