Christmas Chocolate Bark Recipe

Chocolate bark UK ingredients

  • 200g milk chocolate – I usually just buy the big Dairy Milk bars for this recipe.
  • 120g white chocolate – I use Milky Bars for our chocolate bark recipe.
  • 100g shelled pistachios – crush the pistachios using the end of a rolling pin to break them up.
  • 50g dried cranberries – if you don’t like dried cranberries just swap them for sultanas or raisins.

How to make chocolate bark

  • Line a small tray (approx. 30cm x 15cm) with greaseproof paper.
  • Break the chocolate into two separate bowls, one for the milk and one for the white. Melt the chocolate by standing the bowls in boiling water and stirring the chocolate until it’s all melted.
  • Pour the melted milk chocolate into the tray and flatten with a spatula, then drizzle over the white chocolate and swirl it into the milk chocolate using a cocktail stick.
  • Whilst the chocolate is still melted sprinkle over the pistachios, cranberries and decorate with gold dust and edible silver stars.
  • Put the chocolate bark into the fridge to set hard. Once it’s set, break it into pieces and eat.

More Christmas chocolate bark recipe ideas

  • switch the milk chocolate for dark chocolate
  • make white chocolate bark and just use melted white chocolate decorated with the cranberries, pistachios and edible glitter and stars.
  • add any type of nuts or fruit you like
  • decorate with whichever sprinkles you fancy
  • one of our lovely chocolate bark ideas is to add a sprinkling of smashed candy canes and make this a peppermint bark

How to break up chocolate bark?

Once the chocolate has set in the fridge, just tip it from the tin and break the chocolate into pieces, I tend to just tap it with the end of a rolling pin.

How do you store chocolate bark?

Well to be honest it never really needs storing for long… but once broken, I do keep the pieces in the fridge in an air tight container – I remove from the fridge about 20 minutes before eating, it just tastes extra nice that way.
