Recipe Notes

  • When microwaving chocolate to melt, make sure to stir every 20-30 seconds.  Do not overheat or the chocolate will burn and become hard.
  • When chocolate begins to soften, stir to melt any small lumps. DO NOT overheat.
  • To speed up cooling and hardening time, place sheet of bark in the freezer for 15-30 minutes.
  • Store bark in an airtight container or bag at room temperature, fridge or freezer.
