Chocolate bark, two ways – with honeycomb and pretzels | Recipe

chocolate bark - two ways

As it’s only been Jacob’s first year at school, I’ve never done the whole “buying gifts for teachers” thing. He’d had five teachers over the course of the year, so I didn’t really want to spend too much money. Therefore, I decided we would go for the personal touch and make some chocolate bark!

There are so many variations for chocolate bark – you could chuck in whatever ingredients you want really. We made two different versions; white chocolate with salted caramel pretzels and fudge pieces, and milk chocolate with crushed honeycomb and dried fruit. It’s so easy to make too – it can be done in ten minutes, plus setting time in the fridge.

The ingredients listed are obviously just suggestions – you could just use up whatever you have in your cupboard. This is just a really cheap easy gift idea, or even great to snack on whilst watching a movie. Kids and adults alike will love it!

  • Line a large deep rectangular baking tray with grease proof paper, or use a silicone one with no need to line.
  • Gently melt your chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a pan of lightly simmering water.
  • Leave to cool for a few minutes, then carefully pour into the tray.
  • Top with your chosen ingredients, and gently press down if needed. (For the honeycomb bark, leave a little honeycomb to sprinkle over the top).
  • Put in the fridge to set, then have fun breaking it up!
  • Put in bags to give as gifts, or a bowl to share; either way, enjoy!
