What could possibly say I love you more than this sweet treat of Valentine’s Day Bark.   This is going to be my new go to treat for all holidays.  It is so super easy to make, with the right color chocolate and the right toppings you have the most festive delicious treat. 

I must admit I adore this.  My boys will be thrilled on Valentine’s Day when they receive their special piece of Valentine’s Bark.  These are the things that make memories that last a lifetime.     

This is super easy to make and definitely something you can have your kids help with. 

 

My ingredients used:

I have used two different kinds of candy melts.  If you happen to use the Wilton candy melts the directions on the back are perfect.   If not I will tell you the perfect directions for melting your chocolate. 

 

Melting chocolate:

In a microwave-safe container microwave candy melts at 50% power or the defrost setting on your microwave.  Melt for one minute to start.  Remove and stir.  Place back in the microwave for additional 30 seconds at 50% power.  Remove and stir.  Continue to do this in 30 second intervals until smooth and creamy.  Remember less is better.  You can help melt some pieces that are still not fully melted by stirring with a spoon.  You do not want to over microwave your chocolate. 

 

Directions for making your bark:

Pour your melted chocolate onto a piece of parchment paper.  Spread it out to about the thickness you would like your bark to be.  Quickly (before your chocolate starts to firm up) add your toppings to your chocolate.  This is where you will want the kids to join in the fun.

    So I’m assuming that the bark is just chocolate chips melted with nothing added to it ?

      Yes nothing added to it at all. Occasionally if you find your chips not to be melting to a thin enough consistency, you can add a little bit of vegetable oil to it.
