Chocolate bark is one of those rare, wonderful treats that looks impressive with barely any effort on your part. And because all that is required of you is melting chocolate, it’s incredibly fun to make. You can use any combination of foodstuffs to crumble on top of it before it re-solidifies in the fridge, so this presents a fantastic opportunity to become adventurous with your flavours. And if it doesn’t work out, all you’ve wasted was a bar of chocolate. But, y’know, try to make it work if you can, because chocolate is a terrible thing to waste.

 

White Chocolate Bark

200 g of white chocolate

20 roughly chopped pistachios, or a handful if you’re not into couting

Handful chopped, blanched almonds

Handful chopped cranberries

 

Dark Chocolate Bark 

200 g dark chocolate

1 cup chopped salted pretzel (about 15 mini pretzels)

1 tsp finely chopped crystalized ginger

 

Recipe

1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, or if you don’t own one of those fancy things, melt it in a bowl over a pot of boiling water, making sure the bowl does not touch the surface of the boiling water. Once the chocolate is melted (about 3 minutes), pour it out onto a baking tray covered with greaseproof paper.

2. Sprinkle the other ingredient on the chocolate while it’s still hot.

3. Let cool for an hour and then refrigerate until solid.

4. Eat that bitch.

I consumed the lion’s share of all of that chocolate within 3 minutes and I would do it again. I highly recommend eating this all 400 g of that chocolate alone in a dark room where no one can see you shame. Enjoy!
