Two Step Chocolate Bark
200g dark chocolate, chopped
2 tbsp milk chocolate pieces
small handful pretzel pieces
2 tbsp of any other toppings (other ideas include nuts, instant coffee, honeycomb pieces, etc)
Melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 20 seconds, until smooth. Spread onto a parchment-lined baking tray with a spatula, making a thin layer approximately 35 x 20 centimeters.
Want to take it up a notch?
Top it with this Beer Brittle
- 1/2 cup beer (we used a stout)
- 1 Tablespoon light corn syrup
- 1 cup sugar
Once chocolate bark is set, combine beer, sugar and corn syrup in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn down to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Once it reaches 310 degrees, pull of the heat and set aside to cool. Cool for 7-8 minutes, then drizzle chocolate bark with the brittle mixture. Return to freezer to set.
