I buy certain grocer items in bulk. For instance, flour, dry pasta, rice, sugar and other pantry stuff.

I also attempt to buy chocolate chips in bulk. But, no matter how much I buy, it’s never enough. My youngest is an avid baker and everyone else, is, well, chocolate lovers. They can’t resist grabbing a few to satisfy their sweet tooth.

With my recent purchase, I decided to make up this easy bark before the supply ran low. It’s easy, delicious and super-duper versatile.

Just Two Main Ingredients are Needed:

  • Chocolate chips
  • Butter (you can also use oil or shortening)

To Make Your Bark: Grab a microwave safe bowl and melt the chocolate chips and butter together until smooth. Important: Do this in 30 second intervals. This will help prevent it from burning.

Next, spread the melted chocolate on to a flat rimmed baking sheet that is line with parchment paper or wax paper. I used a 10 x 15 sheet and it filled it completely.

The best part: Top with whatever toppings you like. A few ideas: sprinkles, nuts, pretzels, cookie bits, coarse sea salt, candy, assorted flavored baking chips…the list is endless!

Once you have topped it off, place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for about 2 hours to set. Then, break up the chocolate into your desired size pieces.

This bark is crazy good and would make a fun homemade holiday gift!

I like my bark made with almonds, my boys prefer PB cup pieces or smashed peppermint candy canes.
