Making chocolate bark is an easy and fun confection for all ages! Although there are many methods to make bark, our tried-and-true recipe consistently gets good results. We recommend using chocolate chips because they’re easiest to work with and don’t require tempering. Not a fan of cranberries or almonds? No problem! Mix in your favorite dried fruit and nut combinations.

Difficulty: easy
Prep time: 5 min

1 lb chocolate chips of your choice
1 c whole almonds
1/2 c dried cranberries

Line a standard baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Place chocolate chips in a clean, dry and microwave-safe container, such as a 4-cup glass Pyrex measuring pitcher. Melt chocolate in the microwave 1 min, stop and stir, then microwave 1 min more. While hot, pour chocolate onto baking sheet and spread evenly using a rubber scraper, approx. 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick. Sprinkle almonds and cranberries on top, then drizzle with any remaining melted chocolate. Place sheet in the refrigerator to set. When completely chilled, break into pieces and enjoy!
