Gosh, it has been way too long since we've had a chocolate recipe around here, hasn't it? Not to worry, it's not because I haven't been eating chocolate (oh -- that's not what you were worried about? Hmph.) I've been eating plenty of these melt-in-your mouth cookies, and eating my fair share of chocolate chips (Did half of the chips destined to become this bark end up being eaten straight from the bag? ... Maybe).
Anyways -- what you really care about: A chocolate recipe you can enjoy pretty much right now. Like not even kidding. All you have to do it melt some chocolate, top it with some extra goodies, and throw it in the fridge for a few minutes to set. Then all of this chocolatey goodness is yours. You don't even have to wait for the bark to set -- I almost guarantee there'll be a chocolatey spoon or spatula that needs licking.
The bonus? This chocolate bark is a super cute Christmas present. One that's full of homemade thought and sweet with handcrafted love. Tuck some bark into a pretty bag, tie it with a bow, and every chocoholic will love you. I know I would.
✅Last minute present success!
Wishing everyone a happy holiday/solstice/winter break!
