DIY Chocolate chalkboard

End of the year is coming so the kids and I decided to make teachers chocolate chalkboards as part of their gift.

Here's what you need:

Chocolate bar (any size)
Powdered sugar

 This is the kind of chocolate bar I used. You don't want any
"additions" in your bar like almonds etc. because you'll 
want the chalkboard to have a smooth surface.
You can use any size chocolate bar, I decided 
to use the larger symphony bars.

Rub the bar with your finger or a paper towel to remove
the shine.

Write your message with a tooth pick.

Sprinkle powdered sugar on the bar and rub in with
your finger.

Wipe the sugar off with a paper towel.

Sorry, tried to turn these but the won't co-operate. This
is what the finished product looks like. 

If you want to be fancy, you can use caramel or fruit leather as a border. You can also use white sprinkles as chalk and press them into the top edge of the border along the bottom edge of the chalk board.  

Till next time!

PS. If your chocolate bar breaks, you can melt the pieces together like I did on the chocolate bar to the right. It's not going to be the cutest thing ever but it will work. If not, go buy another and start over!
