Easter is just a bunny hop around the corner and dreams of chocolate are filling the minds of children – and adults, too. A chocolate treat is the perfect way to sweeten your spring, and when it comes to this dark delicacy, the folks at Perth Chocolate Works are the experts.
Since opening their doors in the small town of Perth, sisters Brenda and Heather McKeen have been sharing their favourite recipes and chocolatey treats with customers. The McKeen sisters are big believers that we’re all a little bit of a kid at heart, and they love to make some of their favourites from the shop at home, and bring the whole family into the adventure.
Celebrate spring and Easter’s bounty with the McKeen sister’s fun do-it-yourself chocolate creation, Marshkebab (and if you’re not sure what a Marshkebab is, you’ll have to make it to find out). From their kitchen to yours, Perth Chocolate Works is there for you.
You can indulge in the decadence of a truly excellent Belgian chocolate from Perth Chocolate Works any time of the year. Order online and bring some chocolate goodness right to your home.
1 cup Large marshmallows
1 cup Semi-sweet or milk chocolate wafers, bars, or chips
Skewers or candy sticks
Directions: Set up a chocolate-making station in the kitchen for the kids. Have them stick some large marshmallows on a skewer while an adult melts some chocolate in a bowl in the microwave (if you don’t have a microwave you can also melt chocolate on the stove in a double boiler). Dip your marshmallows into the melted chocolate and sprinkle with candy sprinkles. Allow to sit in a cool place until the chocolate has hardened. Enjoy!
About Brenda and Heather:
Chocolate is a passion for whole McKeen family, including Brenda and Heather. The McKeen’s chocolate business launched from their home in Manitoulin Island, where it was called Manitoulin Chocolate Works. The family has been making chocolate for more than 20 years and there is little about this dark and delicious treat they don’t know about (and love).
