chocolate bark

Need an easy chocolate dessert recipe? Chocolate bark is a delicious yet still decadent treat that you can make with any number of nuts, seeds or other inclusions.

Don’t believe that it’s easy? Here’s the general idea: You melt some chocolate jussssst to where it’s almost melted, stir until completely melted, toss in your add-ins, stir until everything is covered in chocolate, then pour onto a baking sheet and chill for an hour or so. Break into pieces and you’re done.

homemade chocolate bark recipe

  •  1 lb  chocolate (I prefer 60-70% cocao bittersweet)
  • 2 cups chopped nuts, coconut and/or seeds
  • Coarse sea salt (optional)

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Break chocolate into chunks into a large glass bowl (preferably one with a pouring spout). Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir. Repeat in 30 second increments until chocolate is almost melted. Stir until chocolate melts completely and add your nuts, etc.

Pour chocolate onto lined baking sheet and, using a spatula, spread out into a thin layer. Sprinkle quickly with coarse sea salt, if desired, before chocolate sets.

Place in refrigerator until chilled, about 1 hour. Break into large pieces and store in a cool place.

I also use white chocolate for bark, when I have it, but be warned that it doesn’t harden back up like real chocolate.

So now, next time you need an easy dessert recipe, you’ve got one! Enjoy!
