Become a Bark Making Pro with These 3 Tips

Chocolate bark is one of the easiest chocolate candies, it doesn’t require any special equipment or molds and there is no lengthy hand rolling either. Here are a few tips to make bark making even easier. Read on and you’ll be a pro in no time.

  1. A little salt goes a long way – A sprinkle of salt goes hand in hand with dark chocolate. Sprinkle a pinch of kosher salt over your bark and have everyone asking for your recipe. If you want to get really fancy you can experiment with smoked or other flavored salts.
  2. If you have time, temper – But if you don’t, don’t worry about it. The two main advantages of tempered chocolate when it comes to bark are the pleasing snap tempered chocolate makes when you break it and the way that it doesn’t immediately melt in your hands. If you want to temper your chocolate, David Lebovitz has great instructions. If you don’t feel like messing around with tempering, try the training-wheels version by melting only ¾ of your chocolate and adding the rest to the melted chocolate off the heat. The residual heat with melt the solid chocolate, and the solid chocolate will cool down the melted chocolate, mimicking tempering.
  3. Gift away – Chocolate bark is a great, easy gift and with this low-carb sugar-free recipe, your recipients won’t have to worry about indulging.
