Some of our lovely readers wanted to know how to make the candy Caitlin got for her birthday. It’s really quite simple and would make a nice gift. It’s just a gourmet bark, really. So all you need is some good quality dark or milk chocolate and some white chocolate. You just melt one of the chocolates over a low heat and add anything you want. While it’s far more beautiful to sprinkle the ingredients on the top, I found they fell off too easily so I have just started mixing them into the chocolate. Once the ingredients are mixed in, pour the mixture onto parchment paper. I just do it right on the counter and then let it cool. Then break the bark into chunks and package in some festive bags. I’m planning to give it out for Christmas so shhhhh don’t tell anyone. I’m sure they’ll never read this post.
I made Caitlin a dark chocolate, dried cherry, and orange bark. Another one was white chocolate, macadamia nut, lime zest, and toasted coconut. And the other was a white chocolate, craisin, pistachio mix. The kids felt left out so I made them a white chocolate oreo bark. I have some grapefruit on the counter that wants to be made into bark so I’m trying to think of a delectable combination- grapefruit and ….. I don’t know what yet.
