Sweet Treats - Valentine's Day Bark

This is a fun and easy recipe for Valentine’s Day and great to make with kids.  This bark is filled with chocolate, pink swirls, festive sprinkles, and lots of conversation hearts.  It is easily adaptable to other candy if you aren't a fan of conversation hearts. 

Ingredients

6 ounces (170g) white chocolate, coarsely chopped.  You can also use white almond bark or while chocolate chips. 
2 ounces (about 1/2 cup) pink candy melts
8 ounces (226g) semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped.  Substitute chocolate chips if desired. 
Candy hearts and sprinkles for topping.  

Instructions

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.

Melt the white chocolate and pink candy melts together. Use a double boiler or microwave. If using microwave, stir the chocolate every 20 seconds to help avoid seizing. Set aside.

Melt the semi-sweet chocolate. Pour onto prepared baking sheet and spread out into a large rectangle. Drizzle the white chocolate mixture on top in lines. Use a toothpick or knife to swirl the layers together.

Decorate the top of the bark with candy hearts and sprinkles.

Allow the chocolate to set uncovered at room temperature or in the refrigerator. It usually takes about 45 minutes in the refrigerator. Once hardened, break into pieces as large or as small as you want.

Store bark in an airtight container at room temperature in a cool, dry place for up to 1 week or in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
