Sweet Citrus Chocolate Bark

I’m not exactly religious, so for me Easter basically has always been synonym for: YAY long weekend where I get to stuff my face with chocolate. My mum used to hide easter eggs in the garden and my brother and I would spend the morning finding about 70% of them (the rest we would become ant-food or would spend the summer chillin til we find them the following October when raking the leaves). This year Easter is combining with Spring Break, and since I’m staying at home taking it easy, it’s perfect timing to spend the weekend doing some Easter recipe testing. So I asked myself k…what’s traditional Easter food I can cook up? Literally have no idea cuz all I remember eating on Easter was those Lindt chocolate bunnies and Cadbury Cream Eggs…guess I’m cooking up chocolate? I got inspired for this citrus chocolate bark by thinking about what colours are usually associated with Easter, and when I thought yellow and orange, plus chocolate…done and done. Citrus chocolate bark sounds amazing, let’s do it. As usual the recipe is vegan, gluten-free and free of refined sugar. Plus it’s easily customizable, add any nut, fruit or spice to switch up the flavour. Oh and it’s pretty much fool-proof cuz chocolate is chocolate, it will always and forever be delicious and loved by everyone (except for those few people out there that feel the need to tell people that they don’t like chocolate… like who are you, where are you from, go back to your home planet pls cuz clearly it’s not this one).ย
