Chocolate Bark – A Quick, Easy Christmas Recipe

The majority of Christmas revolves around spending time together eating, that’s what’s so great about it!  Homemade food can also work as a thoughtful gift to give at this festive time of year.  Here’s a super easy, but delicious, Christmas chocolate recipe.  It’s name is Christmas bark as it resembles the bark that you see on a tree.  It’s a basic recipe which can be interpreted in as many different ways as you want.

Ingredients:

  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 100g white chocolate
  • Sea salt flakes
  • Nuts / dried fruit of your choice for the topping

Method:

    1. Prepare by covering a large baking tray with baking paper.
    2. Melt the dark chocolate and the white chocolate separately. To do this put the dark chocolate in a glass bowl above a pan of boiling water, and do the same with the white chocolate. Keep stirring both the bowls of chocolate until the chocolate turns to liquid.
    3. Pour the dark chocolate all over the baking paper in the baking tray. Then drizzle the white chocolate over the top of the dark chocolate and drag a fork over it to create a marbled pattern.
    4. Scatter your nuts, fruit, and a little sea salt all over the top of the chocolate, so that it rests on top.
    5. Leave in the fridge or somewhere cool to set and become solid chocolate again.
    6. When it is solid and hard you can break the chocolate back into pieces. Keep it in a box or a bag and give to friends. It will last for two weeks.

Have a very happy Christmas, New Year and Three Kings from everyone at GNP!
