I celebrate holidays with chocolate!!! Who needs green beer when you can have green chocolate! I might have a green bagel for breakfast but you can bet a bucket of lucky gold coins that I will finish off my day with some delicious St. Patrick’s Day Bark. This is the stuff that leprechaun’s dream of.
Bark has definitely been one of the most fun ways to represent every holiday. Lets start a bark revolution, bring bark back into the limelight that it truly deserves.
This is super easy to make and definitely something you can have your kids help with.
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.
White chocolate chips, green candy melts, St. Patrick’s Day inspired sprinkles.
Directions for making your bark:
Pour your melted white chocolate onto a piece of parchment paper. Spread it out to about the thickness you would like your bark to be. Then pour your green melted chocolate over the top of the white chocolate. I like to use the dull edge of a knife to create a nice swirl effect between the two colors of chocolate. 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.
