Ice Cube Tray Chocolates

All you need is a few Galaxy milk chocolate bars, white chocolate bars and your favorite fruits like strawberries or cherries.


1. Melt the Galaxy milk chocolate and the white chocolate over a bainmarie, each separately.
2. Add a bit of chocolate milk to the Galaxy chocolate so that it sets well when you refrigerate it.
3. Pour one layer of your milk-chocolate mix into the tray, just enough to cover all sides of each cube.
4. Place it in the fridge for 10-15 minutes until it sets.
5. Add a bit more of the chocolate mix along with your choice of cherries or strawberries and refrigerate for ten more minutes.
6. Add a final layer of white chocolate to seal the cube.
7. Pop them out and you have a set of perfect chocolate cubes, which look as amazing as they taste.
