Barking Up The Right Tree: Easy Chocolate Bark Recipe

easy chocolate bark recipe - coco cake land

Woof woof – this easy chocolate bark recipe is so simple to make for the holidaze, or top a party cake, or to crunch and munch while slumped out like a potato sack for an evening of couch-sitting. Make it as a hostess gift, or break into shards and set in a candy dish for your own holiday fete.

How’s your holidaze going?? I was reminded recently of this super cute DIY silver fringe letter garland I made last year – made with supplies you have kicking around your house. I should break out those JOY letters … where on earth did I put them again (ie which random box did I stuff them into last January…)

For The Chocolate Bark

Make It!

  1. Over low heat (or in the top of a bain-marie) – carefully melt your chocolate, watching it to ensure it does not burn.
  2. Once melted, pour onto a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet, spreading with an offset spatula to the edges.
  3. Sprinkle your favourite toppings on.
  4. Let set in fridge for an hour until firm.
  5. Break into pieces and enjoy!

    Lyndsay, this bark looks so tasty (and I love how easy it is). I mean, anytime you’re heaping melted chocolate with goodies you can’t go wrong, right? I can’t wait for an excuse to make a cake so I can top it with bark!
