Chocolate Bark

Chocolate bark

This is such an easy recipe to do and perfect if you need to do any last-minute gifts for Christmas, after all who doesn’t love a gift of chocolate?!

There are a number ways you can flavour the bark from dried fruit, nuts, candy canes, stem ginger, marshmallows etc.  The choice is entirely up to you.  The trick to a good chocolate bark is to use really good quality dairy free dark chocolate.  If you can tolerate dairy then you can use milk chocolate to replace the dark chocolate.

As this is my last post before Christmas, I would just like to thank you all for reading my blog and for the positive feedback I receive it is truly appreciated.

I’d like to wish you and your families a wonderful Christmas xx

Ingredients

-200g good quality dark chocolate

Topping Ideas

dried fruit, chopped nuts, chopped stem ginger, rose water, crumbled freeze-dried fruit, edible rose petals, mini marshmallows, chopped candy canes.

How To Make

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place a heat proof bowl over a pan of gently boiling water – ensure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl.

Break the chocolate up and place in the bowl.  When it starts to melt give it  a stir.  When it is nearly all melted remove from the heat and continue to stir until there are no more lumps of chocolate.

At the point you can add some of your toppings/flavourings into the chocolate.

Pour the melted chocolate onto the parchment paper and spread out in a thin layer.

Sprinkle over the toppings and place in the fridge.

Once the bark is solid, break up into smaller pieces and either place in gift bags to give as gifts or place in an airtight container and keep in the fridge.
