  • 8 ounces Ghirardelli Baking Bars finely chopped
  • Toppings of your choice I used freeze-dried strawberries, flaked almonds, Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Caramel Squares, sea salt, edible sequins, nonpareils, and edible Easter grass
  1. Place the chopped chocolate in a shallow metal bowl.
  2. Nestle the bowl over a small pot of warm (110 to 115 degrees F) water, and allow to stand for 15 minutes, stirring with a silicone spatula every 5 minutes and changing out the water as it cools.  (Take care not to allow any water to drip into the bowl of chocolate.)
  3. When all the chocolate is melted and smooth, pour it onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, and smooth it out into a thin, even layer.
  4. Sprinkle with desired toppings.
  5. Allow to set/harden.
  6. Break into shards.
