Chocolate Bark makes the perfect gift for someone special or as something to snack on. Perfect for satisfying everyone’s sweet tooth. I love making it every year for the Jewish holiday of Tu BiShvat.
*The full recipe is in the recipe card below!
The recipe makes about 20 barks~ 5 small gift bags. You can easily double or triple the recipe.
Dark chocolate: I definitely recommend using a high-quality chocolate bar. Another option is candy melts or wafers. Don’t use chocolate chips if you can help it; they have some additives and tend to be a bit more challenging to work with.
Nuts, seeds, and dried fruit: Everything goes! Orange peel, cranberries, cherries, apricots, coconut flakes, banana chips, sliced almonds, cashews, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, and hazelnuts.
How to Make Chocolate Bark?
It is a good idea to prepare your ingredients in advance.
First, melt your chocolate and coconut oil: The easiest way to melt chocolate is in the microwave, but it can also be melted in a double boiler on the stove.
Once you melt the chocolate, you just have to spread it into a thin layer on parchment paper and add the toppings.
You could use any pan or baking sheet size you want. Just make sure that there is room to spread your chocolate in a nice even layer.
Let the chocolate cool and harden, then simply break the bark into pieces with your hands.
How to Store Chocolate Bark?
Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place, ideally less than 70ºF/21ºC. The bark will last for several weeks and doesn’t need to be refrigerated.
If you have to store it in the refrigerator, make sure it’s in an airtight container to prevent moisture and smells from spoiling the chocolate.
Gift It: This makes a great homemade gift! Gift it in a cute bag with a ribbon on top.
