Recipe | Valentine's Bark


I'm back with my second Valentine's recipe of the year! Don't forget to check out my Peppermint Candy Valentine's Biscuits! There's nothing I love more than a theme, any excuse for theming a recipe, I'll be there! I think Valentine's Day is a love it or hate it dealio, I love it! I love giving themed gifts and I don't think it has to just be about boyfriends/girlfriends etc, especially when it comes to giving homemade gifts, everyone loves a sweet treat! 

Last year was the year I discovered the wonder of bark, I've alway loved the look of it but I thought it would be super faffy, it couldn't be easier! So this Valentine's bark is the second bark recipe I've posted, check out my Peppermint Candy Cane Bark recipe too! This bark really is just a base for lots of yummy toppings, there are so many! My choices this time were freeze dried raspberries, tiny meringue pieces and heart shaped sprinkles, just to make them that bit more Valentine's! 


Ingredients - 

250g milk chocolate
200g white chocolate 
50g of any toppings you like! (sprinkles, candy, nuts etc)

Method - 

1. Firstly you'll want to line a baking tray, I used a square one that was about 8x8. Set aside. 

2. In a microwavable bowl, break up 200g of the milk chocolate into pieces, melt in the microwave in 15 second bursts, stirring after each, it can burn super easily !

3. Pour the melted chocolate into the prepared tray and smooth over with a spatula. Place into the fridge for 20 minutes or until just set, if fully set they layers can separate. 

4. After 20 minutes break up all of the white chocolate and place into a microwaveable bowl, again melt in 15 second bursts. Once melted spoon over the milk chocolate layer and smooth with a spatula. 

5. Scatter your toppings all over the surface of the white chocolate, I used heart shaped sprinkles, mini meringues and freeze dried raspberries. 

6. Melt the remaining 50g of milk chocolate in the same way as before. Use a fork or a squeeze bottle to drizzle over the top of the bark. Refrigerate until set, break up into pieces!

  1. I always thought making bark was a lot more complicated than this. Plus it's chocolate so I have to give this recipe a try! x

  6. I love a good themed bake too! I’m glad you posted this as I’ve wondering about making chocolate bark before and it seems easier than I thought. All the little decorations on top really add a special touch too! I’ve been doing some Valentine’s baking as well if you want to check it out on my blog. Happy Valentine’s!! :-) xx
