I have used dried cranberries here but i think it would look better if i chopped them into much smaller pieces. I'm sure many of you can make this better than me. Another thing i realised is that it actually melts faster than the chocolate bar that we buy from the supermarkets..maybe a little strange cos it's the same bar of choc i got from the mart..now i think that maybe i have prolonged the melting process and overheated the cocoa butter content in it. I read that cocoa butter is a kind of fat that will stay solid at room temperature , it also helps the choc to stay solid at room temperature, has a low melting point but will change structure if it is at high melting point, so probably that explains why this melts more quicker. Anyway, the reason of this post is to share an idea on making personalized gifts ,not just only for christmas, it can be a gift to anyone anytime, make your own customised bar of chocolate from scratch and top it with your favourites.
