New Years Chocolate Bark Recipe

Chocolate bark is primarily made of chocolate chips or chocolate wafers that are topped with a mixture of candy, nuts or sprinkles. It’s most commonly made by melting the chocolate in the microwave and lasts up to three months in the panty.

It is called “bark” because once broken into pieces, it often has a craggy surface that resembles tree bark.

Tips for making chocolate bark:

  • Use candy melts for best results, the wafer chocolate melts the best. Add one teaspoon of coconut oil to other chocolate to help it melt and pour better.
  • Pour chocolate onto a parchment lined baking sheet for easy moving and transporting before the chocolate has hardened.
  • Place the chocolate in the fridge or freezer to completely cool before breaking into small pieces.

  • Be sure to use a sharp knife or dry hands when breaking the bark otherwise the colour from the candy tends to rub off if there is any moisture present. 
  • Store the chocolate bark in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three months. It can also be stored in the fridge to prevent the bark from melting.
