Spring Chocolate Bark

I love making bark around holidays because: it's so easy (just watch for yourself... I'll be making this Spring Chocolate Bark on FB live with International Delight next Friday!!), Babycakes loves helping to scatter and press on the toppings, it's super great to share with friends and family, annnnnnnnnnd it's DELISH!

This Spring one with its pastel colors and dark chocolate-y goodness is definitey a favorite. But you might also like my carrot cake one, my butterscotch pumpkin one, or my orange walnut one. I told you I love bark!!

The base of the spring chocolate bark includes:

  • 100% cacao chocolate (helllllllllllllllllllllo, dark)
  • Hershey's® special dark chocolate
  • International Delight Hershey's® Chocolate Caramel Creamer

Easy peasy! Then, it's topped with crushed pistachios, coconut shreds, rainbow sprinkles, and robins eggs.

As I said, this is a great recipe to make with kids!! They can help:

  • sort the robins eggs by size -- we separated out all the tiny / partial pieces
  • measure the toppings into individual bowls
  • sprinkle the toppings on top of the melted chocolate
  • press the robins eggs into the chocolate
  • break the bark into pieces once it's set/cooled

This isn't just a dessert full of empty calories. The shredded (unsweetened) coconut and pistachios both add healthy fats that satisfy you, and the higher percentage cacao is full of antioxidants.

So all that's left to do:

1) Make this bark. Then, bring it to a party, package it up to give to friends or your kids' teachers (they will love you forever!), or eat it for dessert at home with the fam.

2) Make sure you're following me on Facebook -- so that you can watch me make this recipe live Friday, 3/23!

3) Sign up for the International Delight newsletter -- to get coupons and more delicious recipe ideas!

Spring Chocolate Bark

Description

Spring Chocolate Bark

Ingredients

4 ounces
unsweetened 100% cacao baking chocolate
3 ounces
Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate (~2 bars)
2 tablespoons
International Delight Hershey's Chocolate Caramel Creamer (or ID Almond Joy Creamer would work too!)
1⁄4 cup
crushed pistachios
1⁄4 cup
unsweetened coconut shreds
1 tablespoon
rainbow sprinkles
1⁄4 cup
mini Robin Eggs

Instructions

  1. Prepare all of your toppings first --- into little bowls so that you can easily grab them quickly once the chocolate is melted. 
  2. Prepare your baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper. 
  3. In a medium stockpot over low heat, break the chocolate bars into pieces and then slowly melt... stirring frequently. 
  4. Once melted, stir in the International Delight Hershey's Chocolate Caramel creamer.
  5. Stir a few more times, then pour the melted chocolate onto the parchment. 
  6. Use a large spoon to spread it out into a thin even layer, approximately 1/2cm thick. 
  7. Immediately, sprinkle on the toppings and press in the robin eggs into the chocolate. 
  8. Put in the fridge or freezer for at least 2 hours to harden. 
  9. Once hardened, use a large knife (or your hands!) to break the bark into pieces. Enjoy!
