Chocolate Bark Recipe


Now, I don’t really know how, but chocolate bark is something I had never heard of. I recently came across a recipe for dark chocolate bark and I couldn’t wait to try it! I don’t think there is a recipe better suited to me in the whole world. I’ve seen home made chocolate recipes around but this is such a simple concept and it only takes about 10 minutes to make! That’s my kind of recipe!
You will need:
Melting Chocolate/chocolate pieces (I used milk chocolate and white chocolate)
Baking Paper
A large flat tray
Toppings of your choice

Step 1: Put each type of chocolate in a bowl to melt. You can do this properly over the stove, but I found it just as easy to melt in the microwave. I don’t have a glass or metal mixing bowl, plus I’m notoriously impatient, so I chose the microwave option. It will differ for each machine, but in mine it took one minute of heat and then the bowl and chocolate was warm enough to stir until smooth.  Be careful the bowl will be hot!
Step 2: Line tray with baking paper to prevent it from sticking. Pour the chocolate onto the paper and using the back of a spoon spread the chocolate into an even layer. The thickness of your layer will depend on how chunky you want your bark. Just remember it needs to be able to hold up your toppings.

Step 3: Prepare your toppings prior to melting so that they are ready for this step. I used: Sprinkles, Chopped Hazelnuts, Honeycomb (crushed Crunchie bar) and left over white chocolate; both chopped pieces and drizzled over the top.
Step 4: Evenly spread your toppings over the chocolate (while still warm). I found that drizzling extra chocolate over the chunkier toppings helped to keep it all together.
Step 5: Repeat for each type of bark. Try not to make yourself sick by licking the bowls….
Step 6: Refrigerate for around 30 minutes or until the chocolate has set. (Make sure to keep the trays flat.)
Step 7: Cut/Break into pieces and serve! Show some restraint and don’t eat too many at once because you will feel sick afterwards.

You can do this with whatever flavour/toppings you like. I’m so excited to try some more exciting combinations next time. I’m already planning to make individually designed packets of bark to give out to my friends as Easter presents. Much more personal that store bought eggs!

Enjoy :)
