There are a few things that are good to know before you get started.
- The better the quality of your chocolate is, the better your marbled chocolate will taste.
- If you temper your chocolate before you start to marble it, you will make sure it has that gorgeous shine when it sets.

Making Marbled Chocolate
Obviously, you need at least two different colours of chocolate to make marbled chocolate. I like to work with three colours so that you can make one of the colours pop. The greater the contrast between the colours, the more pronounced the marbling is. In this tutorial, I used milk chocolate, purple chocolate, and white chocolate. The white and purple chocolate work well together because the white makes the purple jump out at you. The milk chocolate works great as a base that tastes great and at the same time, keeps the focus on the purple and white. Colours such as red and black or blue and white work great too.
- Have the mould you want to use ready to go. This can be a baking pan lined with parchment paper, a candy mould or something else.
- Pick your chocolate and melt all the chocolate you want to use (in separate bowls).
- Put the least prominent colour on the parchment paper, cake or cookie you want to cover with marbled chocolate. In this tutorial, we start with the milk chocolate.
- Spread out the milk chocolate evenly.
- Pour the other melted chocolate on the first layer of chocolate. You do not have to do this very carefully. The only thing you need to make sure of is that you do not pour all the chocolate of the same colour in only one spot. Try to spread it out a bit.
- Grab a needle or a skewer and move it through the chocolate in circular motions. Keep doing this until you are happy with the way it looks.
- If you are pleased with the result, place your marbled chocolate in the refrigerator and let it harden.
