HOW TO MAKE ROCKY ROAD CHOCOLATE BARK
- Step 1: Melt dark chocolate either in the microwave in spurts of 60 seconds or in a double boiler. If using the microwave take care not to burn the chocolate!
- Step 2: Keep a parchment paper lined tray ready and evenly spread the melted chocolate on it. Keep the layer slightly thick.
- Step 3: Sprinkle roughly chopped roasted almonds, mini marshmallows, or chopped marshmallows on the chocolate layer. Press these down slightly so as to embed them in the chocolate.
- Step 4: Sprinkle some sea salt on top.
- Step 5: Transfer the tray to refrigerate for a couple of hours till the chocolate is completely set.
- Step 6: Finally, once set, take a sharp knife and cut into different size pieces and serve.
NOTES ON THESE FUN HOLIDAY TREATS
Making this dark chocolate bark is super easy, just take care of some points
- Use the best quality dark chocolate you can find. Once melted it will be glossy and will have a good viscosity.
- Do not overheat the chocolate.
- The melted dark chocolate layer should be slightly thick.
- These dark chocolate almond barks store well. They can be stored for up to 2-3 weeks in the refrigerator.
Chocolate - I have used 55% Dark chocolate for this recipe. Chocolate with higher or lower cocoa content can be used for more bitter or sweeter taste buds.
Nuts - I love almonds here, but feel free to use peanuts, hazelnuts, pecans, or walnuts. Roasting them will add that extra crunch!
Vegan - You can easily use dairy-free chocolate and vegan marshmallows to make this vegan!
