To Melt chocolate :
In a large bowl you have to melt chocolate. You have to be very careful in this step and be aware that you do not overheat and burn the chocolate. Stirring is crucial so that the chocolate melts properly and does not stick to the pan.
Using parchment paper:
This shouldn't be missed though using this paper might not always seem to be quite necessary. If you use this paper and then refrigerate, it will be easy for you to bring out the firm chocolate from the tray or else you might get broken pieces and untidy bits of bar.
Keep the chocolate tray to get firm in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Check if the chocolate is firm or else put it back into the refrigerator. If the chocolate does not freeze well, it will not get firm and cutting it will be really difficult. Moreover, it will be almost impossible to get neat chocolate squares and bars.
Now, with this last step you will be almost done. Just use a very sharp knife to cut the chocolate into squares. Store these crunch bars in the refrigerator and serve whenever you feel like biting into them.
