Hello everyone! Our second recipe in our holiday baking series is Bark! Chocolate Bark! This one is awesome because there is little to no actual baking. If you keep your shoes in your oven, this one’s for you. It does require a double boiler though so your probably shouldn’t reenact My Drunk Kitchen whilst making this one.
Basic Chocolate Bark
- Vegetable oil cooking spray
- 1 pound milk chocolate, chopped
Immediately sprinkle toppings over chocolate. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Peel off parchment, and break bark into pieces.
We decided to make a few variations including Fruit & Nut, Peppermint, Pretzel, and Marbled Cranberry Orange! We decided to double the Basic Chocolate Bark recipe, then divide the melted chocolate into four quarters. We set up a tin foil divider so we could arrange two variations of bark on one sheet! Below are the variation ingredients:
Fruit & Nut Bark
Cranberry Orange Marble
