  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup nuts
  • 1/4 cup seeds
  • 1/4 cup candies
  • 1/4 cup dried fruits


  • Prepare baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Use double boiler method to melt chocolate chips (fill lower pan with water, bring water to simmer, put bowl over the pot with water, place chocolate chips in the bowl and stir until melted).
    1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • Pour chocolate on the parchment paper. Use knife or spatula to spread nicely.
  • Decorate with candies, nuts, seeds or dried fruits.
    1/4 cup nuts, 1/4 cup seeds, 1/4 cup candies, 1/4 cup dried fruits
  • Leave it for about 3-4 hours on the counter top so the chocolate will harden.


  • You can use any type of chocolate that you like: dark, milk or semi-sweet. However, remember that after adding toppings that are sweet like fruits or sprinkles will make the milk chocolate bark even sweeter. That's why I suggest using dark or semi-sweet flavor.
  • You can use chocolate bark, chocolate chips or wafers are good too.
  • You don't have to add any oil or butter, this might prevent thins to harden.
  • Remember to use parchment paper to prevent chocolate sticking to the pan.
  • Press the topping gently right away after you spread the chocolate, otherwise if the bark will start to harden, toppings might fell out.
  • Break the bark by hands or use sharp knife to make smaller pieces.
