All The Rage?

I am absolutely in love with chocolate bark. Since I have discovered the idea of chocolate bark I have been making it non stop, how could i when there are endless possibilities and combinations of this savory treat. While I have been busy cranking out variations among variations of this chocolate delight it seems that others have been also discovering their inner bark fascinations. I have come across the bark delights in various food magazines and blogs I also recently visited a local chocolate shop where they were selling bark for a hefty price. I highly recommend to everyone to make your own Bark! Its so easy, cheap and you get to pick you own toppings not to mention people will be impressed with your trendy creation.

First pick what kind of chocolate to use: White, Semi-sweet, Bitter Sweet,
you will need 1 pound of it cut into 1/2 inch pieces.

Next melt 1 cup of chocolate in microwaveable container for 30 seconds, then stir do this 2 more times stir and then add the remaining chocolate (from the original pound)

Place the melted chocolate onto a baking sheet covered foil and spread out till 1/4 inch thick around. Next pick your toppings, I recommend using 3 to 4 toppings that are crunchy or chewy this is your chance to get creative! 

After adding you topping make sure they are in the chocolate deep enough to stay put when dried, then let dry for an hour in at room temperature.
After you Bark has dried , drop the baking sheet above a counter and let the bark break into smaller pieces and enjoy!
