This week we're back to Chapter Five of the Prisoner of Azkaban "The Dementor" for our next magical Harry Potter recipe:
"Professor Lupin was breaking an enormous slab of chocolate into pieces"
Time for another chocolate cure!
Chocolate is pretty magical as it is, but this week I wanted to add an extra element of magic by conjuring up some colour Hogwarts House chocolate bars that can be personalised to suit your preferences!
This easy chocolate bar recipe will teach you how to temper chocolate for the perfect shine and snap, as well as how to decorate chocolate bar moulds to create your own custom chocolate bar treats! Once you've mastered the basics you can add a range of toppings to transform your magical creations.

Hogwarts House Chocolate bars Ingredients
(makes 4 large bars and 16 mini bars)
For the chocolate base recipe:
200g milk chocolate
200g dark chocolate
400g white chocolate
For the Hogwarts House toppings:
green and yellow edible food paint
candy pieces in assorted colours
dried fruit and nuts (I've used dried apricots, sliced almonds, desiccated coconut, crystallised ginger and dried cranberries)
cereals (I've used Rice Krispies)
Professor Lupin's Chocolate Bar Recipe Method:
Temper the chocolate (one flavour at a time) by melting in a bowl over simmering water until smooth. (Wizard Tip! You're looking for a temperature of around 50c)
Pour the chocolate onto a tempering board, or glass cake stand, spreading it back and forth to gradually cool it down. (Wizard Tip! Keep working it for 5-10 minutes until it reaches 30c)
Repeat the process for the remaining chocolate flavours.
Decorate the bottom of your chocolate bar moulds with edible paint, fruit and nuts.
Carefully pour the melted chocolate over the top and smooth it into the corners.
Leave to firm up at room temperature before placing in the fridge to set.
Once fully set, carefully remove the bars from the mould. (Wizard Tip! You can neaten up the edges with a sharp knife)
Enjoy the Hogwarts House chocolate bars straight away, or seal in plastic wrap and gift to your Wizarding World friends
