Chocolate Bark



Chocolate barks are one of the easiest holiday no-bake treats. They are great to pass on as gifts during the holiday season and can be done in no time. Preparation of bark is really a child's play and nothing can go wrong with the preparation. You just melt and stir. Go with dark / milk chocolate or chocolate chips. Nuts / dry fruits / seeds / pretzels / anything you prefer can be the additions. I went with cashews, pistachios, almonds, raisins, dried cranberries and white chocolate chips. They disappear in no time at my home when my daughter is around.

Ingredients:
Dark chocolate / Milk chocolate/ Chocolate Chips - one pound
Preferred toppings - 1/2 to 3/4 cup

Method:
* Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
* Place chocolate /chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl and set over a pot of simmering water. Stir until chocolate melts. Remove from heat.
* Pour melted chocolate onto the baking sheet and spread it evenly. Sprinkle toppings over chocolate. I added the toppings into the melted chocolate directly and spread it on the sheet and so there are few toppings.
* Refrigerate until firm. Remove from the foil and break bark into pieces.

Rajani, I didn't have white chocolate while preparing the bark. If I would have had then there would have been entirely a different recipe. :)
