Super easy to rustle up, Christmas chocolate bark is a scrumptious sweet gift for anyone – from family members (yes, that aunt you forgot last year), to friends and neighbors. And hand to heart, I also LOVE this chocolate for festive mid-meal snacking and to serve at holiday parties.
Homemade holiday bark
While I used white chocolate for my bark, you can choose any chocolate of your liking. I recommend couverture, a high-quality chocolate, which has a finer texture and contains a higher content of cocoa butter. These two characteristics create a richer chocolate flavor in my opinion.
When it comes to decorating, use ingredients according to your taste and what’s available in your kitchen cupboard. I cut out small stars of crystallized ginger to decorate my holiday bark. I also added crushed candied nuts and festive sprinkles for good measure.
Making candy bark is a lot of fun and a great holiday recipe to do with kids. So fold up your sleeves and get ready for a quick homemade chocolate treat.
Package and gift Christmas chocolate bark
I usually double or triple the recipe so I have more to give away. Thankfully, this homemade Christmas chocolate bark is totally doable in under one hour so that you can whip up a batch even last-minute. Package the chocolate bark in cellophane treat bags or mason jars and decorate with a pretty bow and a gift tag.
