Chocolate Shards

Here’s another recipe from Amanda from Simple home cook. You’re welcome.


This is such an easy dessert that takes only minutes to make and better still – no baking required! It is great to make and keep in a jar in the fridge, make for a party or give to a friend. I have made 2 types to share with you– one with white chocolate and one with milk chocolate and have included both below. I haven’t added quantities of the ingredients as you can add in whatever you like. If you like more coconut and less almonds, then it is up to you. You can also alter the ingredients to suit your personal taste. Delicious!
