Chocolate Pretzel Bark Ingredients

How to make chocolate bark

Just melt your chocolate, in bowls over pans of hot water.

I like to use two different types of chocolate, usually a milk chocolate and a white chocolate which I dye different colours to suit the occasion.

Just remember you need to use food dye gel or paste, not the liquid as it will spoil the chocolate.

Then pour onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper and sprinkle over your toppings.

All you need to do then is allow to set hard in the fridge then break it up to serve.

This is also a really nice edible gift to take to bonfire parties. Just break the bark into pieces and package in a small food bucket with baking paper.

Just how gorgeous does our chocolate bark look?!

You could turn your bonfire bark into a firework explosion – use dark blue and violet food dye to colour the white chocolate and decorate with bright coloured stars and sprinkles sprinkled in swirling patterns.
