Here’s the recipe from Just One Cookbook,
- 400g good quality dark chocolate (70% cacao)
- 200ml (3/4 cup + 1 tbsp) heavy whipping cream
- 1 tbsp liqueur of your choice (optional)
- unsweetened cocoa powder
- Chop chocolate into smaller pieces for it to melt faster and more evenly.
- Place parchment paper onto a baking dish (preferably 20cmx20cm baking dish size).
- In a saucepan, add heavy cream and let it semi boil in a medium heat. Whisk it evenly.
- When you see small bubbles around the saucepan, remove from the heat.
- Add sliced chocolate into the heavy cream and stir to combine.
- Mix the chocolate and cream until there are no lumps. The chocolate should be completely smooth.
- If you like, add liqueur of your choice.
- Pour the mixture into your prepared baking dish and smooth the surface with a spatula.
- Tap the baking dish onto the counter a few times to evenly distribute the chocolate mixture.
- Place it in your refrigerator and let it chill for about 4 to 5 hours.
- After chilling for 4 to 5 hours, remove the chocolate from the baking dish.
- Cut the excess chocolate around the edges to have nice sharp corners.
- Warm up a sharp knife with a hot towel and cut the chocolate into 1” strips. Make sure to constantly clean and warm your knife before each cut to achieve a nice sharp cut. Then cut the strips into cubes.
- Sprinkle cocoa powder on top. If you want all sides to have cocoa powder, you may dip in cocoa powder to coat all sides.
