Chocolate Bark

Chocolate Bark


Bittersweet and White Chocolate swirled together. A great gifting idea for the holidays or a super simple dessert to whip up for company.


  • 12oz. best quality bittersweet chocolate
  • 8oz. best quality white chocolate
  • 3oz dry roasted, salted peanuts


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside until chocolate is ready.
  2. In a double boiler or in a glass bowl set over a small pot of simmering water, melt bittersweet chocolate until smooth and uniform.  Add peanuts.  Pour melted chocolate onto the baking sheet and spread to a uniform thickness of 1/4″, taking care to ensure that the peanuts don’t cluster.
  3. Melt the white chocolate in the same fashion, stirring until it is smooth.  With a large tablespoon, drop spoonfuls of white chocolate over the bittersweet randomly.  Draw a wooden skewer or butter knife through the chocolate randomly to create a swirled effect.
  4. Let set in refigerator for at least 1 hour, then break into small chunks.
