The Beauty Of Chocolate Bark

Ok, so Easter is over but here at Mummies Club we are still into chocolate big time. This weeks blog takes things up a level and allows you (and the kids) to add some creative style to a chocolate treat. 

Making chocolate bark is possibly one of the most simplest things to do. All you need is a 15 mins to spare, two ingredients (chocolate and bits) and a few pieces of basic kitchen equipment. Scroll past the “bark bits” below to see a mini method.

Bark Bits:

The combinations for your bark creations are endless. To give you some inspiration we’ve gathered together some ideas below. Have fun!

Berries – think dried here, we like gogi, cherry and cranberry the best.

Nuts – either whole or crushed the choice is yours.

Fruits – again sticking to dried versions add some beautiful fruits like chopped apricots, dates or maybe some mango.

Seeds – adding some lovely seeds like sunflower or pumpkin can give your bark a slightly wholesome feel.

Coconut – think the lovely taste of bounty bars – yum!

Seasalt  – combine with some lovely caramel pieces for a spin on salted caramel.

Chilli Flakes – chocolate and chill have been paired together for a while now, add as much or as little as your taste buds can bear!

Sprinkles – choose from the lovely range of sprinkles available in your local supermarket baking aisle.

MORE chocolate – why not create a swirl effect with a contrasting chocolate – think beautiful white chocolate swirls in a rich milk chocolate bark.
