5 Ingredients to Make Mars Bar Slice

Chocolate, you gotta love it. Yumm…

There is so much said about what we should and should not eat. They say it about chocolate all the time. Many people love chocolate, yep just plain chocolate. It has less sugar than other types and contains more cocoa solids. Percentages as high as 60-70% show that the chocolate is much smoother and of the highest quality.

Most widely consumed is old fashioned Milk Chocolate. It is sweeter than plain chocolate with sugar and added vanilla.

White chocolate, contains only cocoa butter, milk, sugar and vanilla.

Chocolate drops melt much easier than plain, milk or white chocolate. They are more readily used in cooking or as decorations for cakes.

Adding vegetable fat makes the chocolate easier to melt and work with, although, because of the lack of cocoa butter it does not have the same eating quality as pure chocolate.

Enough of my ramblings, try this for the yummiest chocolate slice you have ever tasted.
