I don’t know why chocolate bark is not all that common in Australia. Sure, we have our fair share of biscuits, rocky road, slices and other sweet treats, but chocolate bark rarely seems to make an appearance. So when I came across chocolate bark on other blogs, and I realised that it would transport well, I just knew that I had to give it a try as part of my homemade holiday treats series. Actually, I was so excited to try it, that I decided to make two varieties…. Candy cane and orange pistachio. Starting with…the candy cane! Just milk and white chocolate – melted and mixed. Candy canes – crushed. And sprinkled. And next…the orange pistachio. Dark chocolate melted, and an orange zested. Spread… And topped with pistachios and more orange zest. Allowed to set then broken into pieces. The candy cane… And the orange pistachio… Oh my … these turned out to be quite the taste sensations. Very dangerous indeed. I was pleased to discover that not only is chocolate bark super easy to make, it is also super versatile. For it seems that no matter what you are craving, you can make a variety to satisfy. Lollies, nuts, fruit…. The options for toppings are endless! All I know is that many a piece of these two varieties has been sampled already. You know, for quality assurance So much so that I am not sure how many pieces will actually make it to our Christmas festivities safely…. What about you? Do you have a favourite chocolate bark flavour combination?
