I’m not much of a winter person, actually I quite dislike it. There are a few things that keep me going this time of the year – strings and strings of twinkling fairy lights in my house and the amazing array of foods we
can get away with eating get to eat. Chocolate tops the list (of course), with this stupendous Dark Chocolate Bark….
Dark Chocolate Bark has got to be hands down the easiest candy to make EVER! You don’t need a recipe, just some really fine quality chocolate and a handful of nuts, seeds or dried fruits. You can use any chocolate you like – dark, milk, white or a combination of these, even some high quality dairy free chocolate will be fabulous here. Flavour your chocolate with a sprinkling of sea salt, chilli powder or cinnamon!
Any kind of nuts will do- raw, roasted plain or the spicy roasted ones. Ditto for seeds. You can use sunflower , pumpkin, melon, sesame…all add that requisite crunch. For additional texture strew some raisins, cranberries, dried apricots, cherries, blueberries, prunes, toasted coconut; anything that catches your fancy. How about some popcorn and a drizzle of caramel on top?
All that is required is your creativity. They are incredibly adaptable and fun to make. I just love breaking the set chocolate into jagged shards studded with various toppings. Great for snacking and as dessert, this chocolate bark also makes a lovely edible gift that will impress anyone. Go ahead share the yumminess and don’t forget to drop in a comment about your customized chocolate bark!
