Recipe: Chocolate Bark


  
Chocolate bark is so delicious and, best of all, incredibly easy.

Step 1:

Boil water in a sauce pan and line your cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2:

Pour the chocolate, of your choice, into a bowl.

For the dark chocolate, I used a half bag of milk chocolate and a half bag of semi-sweet.

Step 3:

Prepare all toppings ahead of time.

For example, we crushed almonds, pecans, Oreos and had unsweetened organic coconut chips on hand. I have the kids place them in plastic baggies and beat the Baggie against the counter or lightly roll artillery over the bag.

Step 4:

Place bowl on top of the saucepan.

Note: do not allow the water to touch the bowl.

Step 5:

Stir often until the chocolate melts.

Step 6:

Spread your chocolate over your parchment paper and create a rectangle.

Note:  I suggest you wipe off the steam that builds on the bottom of the bowl so it doesn’t fall into your chocolate.

Step 7:

Add your toppings and use the same spoon or butter knife to incorporate it within the chocolate.

Note: licking the spoon is a must!

Step 8:

Place in the freezer or refrigerator for at least 2 hours. I placed mine in the freezer over night.

Step 9:

Once hardened, break into piece. I broke them by hand, carefully, as I didn’t want the toppings to fall off.

Step 10:

Enjoy and be ready to awe your guests.

If you wish, you can microwave it, in a microwaveable bowl, in the microwave, in 10 second increments. Simply mix between each 10 second countdown.

Let me know what you think. . .don't be shy.
