From simple and easy-to-make slabs to mouthwatering flavour combinations, we've got you covered with these tempting chocolate slab recipe ideas. And don't worry, we've got some adult favourites at the bottom for you too!

First off, you need to make the chocolatey base.

Making your own chocolatey slab base:

Step 1

Grease a large baking tray and line it with baking paper. Place approximately 400 grams of your favourite chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, ensuring the bowl doesn't touch the water. Stir until melted and smooth.

Step 2

Spread the chocolate in a roughly 5mm-thick layer over the prepared tray. For alternative chocolate melting methods, check out Best Recipes!

Once you have your melted chocolate, it's time to add your favourite ingredients, and you can add as much or as little as you like! Obviously, your children will have a ridiculous idea of what to include already, but here are our suggestions to get the ball rolling. And don't worry, we've added a few adult favourites at the bottom for you to enjoy too!
