Get the kids involved in making some treats for Red Nose Day with this fun Chocolate Bark topped with malteasers, marshmallows and sweets!
Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day is back again and taking place on 24th March. I’m excited to be teaming up with Pinterest this year to bring you a really fun idea to get the kids involved in fundraising.
I’ve been a big supporter of Comic Relief for years and I think that Red Nose Day is such a fantastic way of teaching our children the importance of charity and of helping people less fortunate than ourselves. Bake sales are a really easy but fun way of getting the kids involved and I have a really simple recipe that the kids can make themselves and sell this year.
Chocolate Bark is a brilliant recipe to make, especially with younger kids as its so easy and takes not too much time at all, perfect for impatient little ones! Apart from melting the chocolate, there’s no cooking or baking involved and so it’s perfectly safe for all ages.
We used milk chocolate in my recipe but you can also use dark chocolate or even white chocolate too. The toppings are totally customisable aswell. We chose malteasers, mini marshmallows, some sprinkles and some cute edible eyes and red sweets, perfect for Red Nose Day!
If you’d like to get involved in fundraising this year, you can order your very own Bake Sale Fundraising Kit for free to help you get started. You can also check out some baking inspiration on Pinterest!
- 400g chocolate
- toppings of your choice, I used:
- mini marshmallows
- edible eyes
- red sweets
- Break the chocolate into small squares and place in a large jug or bowl.
- Microwave on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute at a time, stirring in between, until it is completely melted. Be careful not to let the chocolate burn.
- Line a baking tray or dish with parchment paper and pour the chocolate on top, smoothing down with a spoon.
- Add the toppings to the chocolate whilst it is still warm and then place it in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hour or until the chocolate has set.
- Break the bark up and either eat straight away or pack into cellophane bags to sell!
