  • Add the mixture in two baking pans lined with parchment paper and spread it with a spatula to make it a very thin sheet.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, let it cool, and then break it into uneven pieces.
  • Place the pieces on some parchment paper and dye them with the gold food color mist.

For the chocolate rocks
