Why spend thousands of dollars for expensive chocolates when you can have a near-unlimited supply in your own home?
I purchase slabs of pure milk chocolate at the Bulk Barn in Square one Mississauga. I purchase my raisins at the same place.
Carve out a chunk of chocolate about four cubic inches. I placed mine in a bowl and found it to be 100g.
Melt the chocolate on the mug-warmer next to your computer. I place a small plastic lid to retain the heat and speed the melting process.
Once the chocolate is melted (about 30 minutes),
stir an equal volume of raisins, in my case about 50g, and
allow the lot to cool, or solidify.
Once it is solid, slide it from the bowl (a bit of hot water might help) and carve it into 4 pieces. I wrap mine in aluminium foil and give a piece to my friend Tony for him to give to his daughter.
