Hello my friends,
I hope you have been enjoying the posts so far!! Today I thought I would share a edible gift idea. I’ve seen for years the chocolate and peppermint bark floating around the internet and wanted to put my own twist on it! I made up the recipe as I went and it turned out awesome!
Sweet and Salty Chocolate Bark
- 1 1/2 bars of white chocolate
- 1 tablespoon of Crisco
- 1 1/2 cups of milk chocolate chips
For my toppings I used pretzels, white choc. shavings, red sprinkles.
I started by combining the white chocolate with the tablespoon of Crisco so it would melt easier. I broke up the white chocolate into small pieces for the same reason. I microwaved the choc. for 30 sec. intervals on power level 5 stirring after every 30 sec. until it was melted. White chocolate is very hard to work with so you have to be very carful to not burn it. After I melted the choc. I poured it on a cookie sheet and leveled it out. I stuck it in the fridge until it hardened completely. While I was waiting I prepared my toppings. I used a knife and a square of white choc. to make shavings. Next I got about a handful of pretzels and broke them into smaller pieces. I also used a little bit of sprinkles. After my white choc. was completely hard I started to melt the chocolate chips. I melted them in the same way. After they were melted I poured it on top of the white choc. While the chocolate was still melted I put on my toppings. I let the choc. harden completely before I took it out. Next I took it and started breaking pieces off. You can either break them or cut it with a knife. I LOVED the taste of this. It’s sweet and salty at the same time. ( Please don’t tell me I’m the only one that likes that combination!! 🙂 ) This would make a great gift for a neighbor, friend, family, or anyone. I hope you try this out!! It’s amazingly good. I may or may not eat the whole thing 🙂 ( Just kidding! I would really have to hit the gym the next day! 🙂 ) If you try it, let me know if you like it!
