Having a holiday party? Need an easy dessert recipe? Make this Hot Chocolate Bark Candy recipe in 10 minutes, let it harden then serve!
One of the best things about the holidays are the parties with friends and family. I love getting together during this time of year and spending time with everyone. Beyond getting to spend time with friends and family the bonus to parties are the food and goodies! I usually go way above my limits and make about a dozen different treats during the holidays. Everything from cookies to fudge, if it’s sweet I am going to make it!
One of my go to treats for the holidays are my bark recipes. These are easy to make and you can make a bark with just about anything! I always make this I always make this Peppermint Bark recipe every year but today I am mixing it up with a different kind of bark, Hot Chocolate Bark. If you have never made bark you are in luck, it’s super easy! It’s almost fool proof. I always use this Almond Bark Chocolate , it’s easy to melt and tastes great! You just have to make sure you don’t scorch it but really all you do is melt it and spread it out flat.
