Orange Zest and Sea Salt Bark

Holiday season is in full-force! If you’re like me and are getting homemade gifts ready for your friends and family, you have to make this ridiculously easy and delicious Orange Zest and Sea Salt Holiday Bark. Plus, it’s gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and vegan friendly! 

Sea Salt Orange Zest Bark

This bark is as easy as pour, let harden, place in a bag or a cute little box, and deliver! It’s also totally customizable.

This flavor combination is my absolute favorite right now. If you’ve never had chocolate + sea salt + orange zest, you need to try it!

When I was teaching I received this gift bag of bark in adorable festive cookie cutters and I LOVED the idea. You get the bark and the cookie cutter as a bonus! Plus it looks super cute in a gift bag!
