Valentine Chocolate Bark – Ingredients:
– 6 Ounces high quality dark or extra dark chocolate, chopped
– 12 Ounces pink candy melts
– Vegetable oil
– Valentine sprinkles
Step 1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Step 2. Chop chocolate. Melt dark chocolate either in the microwave or a double boiler. If using microwave, place chopped chocolate in a microwave-safe container and heat for 20 second intervals, stirring each time with a silicone spatula. Be careful not to burn the chocolate – when there are just a few small bits left un-melted, stir until it is completely smooth.
Step 3. Pour melted dark chocolate onto your parchment/mat and spread with a small offset spatula until desired thickness is achieved. Freeze for 20 minutes to set.
Step 4. Melt your pink candy melt. Whisk in a couple of drops of vegetable oil slowly at a time, stirring well until you reach a smooth consistency. The oil helps in smoothing out the candy. Let it sit for approximately 3 minutes (or at least until it slightly thickens).
Step 5. Remove pan with set chocolate from the freezer and pour candy melt on top, repeating the same spreading technique as you did with the dark chocolate. Toss sprinkles on right away. Freeze for 20 more minutes.
These make lovely Valentine’s Day gifts from kids to their loved ones.
