I don’t know about all of you, but I am seriously loving this revival of terrazzo! If you don’t know what terrazzo is, it’s basically chips of glass, marble, granite, and quartz sealed together with cement. It makes a super cool colorful pattern and is used a lot in flooring. It may sound new but it’s actually been around forever, and the Hollywood Walk of Fame is actually terrazzo! (Random fact of the day)
Every time I see a swatch of it, I always think it looks like white chocolate (exhibit A). I loveee making chocolate just because it’s so easy and the aftermath is super rewarding, so today we’re making colorful terrazzo chocolate bars! Kyle and I made these together one night and we had a lot of fun making our own patterns and seeing the reveal of the finished chocolate once we took it out of the mold. Hope you all love this one as much as I do!!

1. Using a knife, chop your colored chocolate melts into different sized chunks. These will act as the granite, glass, and marble shards.
2. Place them in the chocolate bar mold in a nice pattern. Make sure to place a lot, as some of them will get covered up in the next step.
3. Melt your white chocolate melts 30 seconds at a time until they are completely melted. Allow the white chocolate to cool for a few minutes so it doesn’t melt the colorful chocolate when you pour it into the mold.
4. Once the white chocolate has cooled slightly, pour it into the mold. Gently tap the mold on the table to remove any air pockets.
5. Place the mold in the fridge until the chocolate hardens completely, and pop it out of the mold to reveal your finished terrazzo pattern!
How cool are all the ways people are making terrazzo crafts and desserts? I love how each one is unique, and I really like the colorful and geometric patterns they make. I can’t wait to see all of your chocolate bars and the colors everyone uses!
