After years of wondering how to make a Cadbury Flake bar, we finally thought “let’s look it up on YouTube” — and sure enough, there is a video of a chocolatier Andy Cameron making something very similar.
The YouTube video explains it well, but basically:
- Pour melted chocolate onto a clean flat table or marble into a puddle.
- Flatten the puddle with a (clean new) wallpaper scraper.
- When it’s nearly dry, run the scraper from one end to the other to make a roll of flake. (Do this when the puddle is a bit wetter than Andy does in the video, as we’re making a bar not a curl.)
- Carefully push the roll of flake together and transfer to a foil wrapper, then freeze for an hour.
There is a knack to be had to make these successfully, and they might be best kept chilled.
