13 Chocolate Barks with a Bite

Chocolate bark. Truly one of the easiest chocolates to make, and yet, one of the most satisfying. My favorite part of this confection is its versatility. Simply take your favorite chocolate, and add in your favorite ingredients- nuts, caramel, peanut butter, marshmallows, candy, cookies, dried fruit, pretzels, bacon…the possibilities are endless.

Personally, I like a bark that combines different textures, and dueling flavors, such as dried tart cherries with salted pistachios, or chewy caramel with crunchy pretzels.

Take a look at these 13 flavor combinations. There’s a bark to suit everyone’s taste.

What’s your favorite combo?

Every day we seem to be honoring a different food. The best part about this tradition is trying new foods and recipes. Today we celebrate the Candied Orange Peel. Alone, or in one of these chocolate recipes, the candied orange is a stampede of flavor on your palate.

Leftover Chocolate?

Of course, I’m joking!  There is no such thing as “leftover” chocolate.  It’s more like, “chocolate I haven’t gotten to yet”.

 

 

 If you find yourself with a surplus of this Easter candy you-have-yet-to-get-to, here are some recipe ideas.


Easter Candy Bark

When making bark, anything goes. Dark, milk, or white chocolate. And your choice of fillers- crushed Robin eggs, candy corn, marshmallows, peanut butter cups, chunks of Creme eggs.  It’s all good.
