Homemade Bark
  • Author: Lexi
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 10 oz. bag dark chocolate or chocolate of choice

Topping ideas:

  • 1 tablespoon All-Purpose Caramel from the Lexi’s Clean Kitchen Cookbook
  • 12 tablespoons orange zest
  • 1/21 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/4 cup dried bing cherries, golden raisins, or dried fruit of choice
  • 1/4 cup nuts or seeds of choice, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut

Instructions

  • Heat chocolate using a double broiler method (Bring one inch of water to a simmer in a small pot. Set the heatproof bowl over the mouth of the pot (water should not touch the bottom of the bowl). Stir chocolate as it softens. When you have just a few small unmelted chunks, remove bowl from heat and stir to melt the rest).
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour out chocolate and lightly spread into a rectangle onto parchment paper. Place into the fridge until bark hardens.
  • If using cookie cutters: lightly grease and pour chocolate to desired thickness (1/4 inch or so). Add toppings and place in fridge until bark hardens.
  • Wrap in cellophane with a bow for the perfect holiday gift!

Notes

Store in the refrigerator until ready to gift.
