Chocolate bark is always a fan favorite for dessert, holiday parties, office potlucks, or just as a sweet snack to keep on hand for quick nibbles. Even better...the recipes are fairly easy to make, and allow plenty of room for experimentation with other toppings and chocolate mixes.
The following chocolate bark recipes can be whipped up in no time, and are each unique in their own right. Their one consistency? TCHO Chocolate Discs for the best part of the recipe: the chocolate itself.
Our couverture discs boast various flavor profiles and are particularly great for cooking and baking up a storm! Choose a flavor such as Classic 39% Milk Chocolate, which highlights caramel, butterscotch, and honey undertones, or go for a deeper taste with a dark chocolate choice like TCHO Pro 68% Dark Chocolate, which is rich with notes of coffee and nuts.
Here are some of our favorite easy chocolate bark recipes.
1. Peppermint Bark
For the holidays or for year round (because peppermint never goes out of style), try this three ingredient peppermint bark recipe from The Spruce Eats. All you need is 12 ounces of dark chocolate, 12 ounces of white chocolate, and eight unwrapped candy canes.
Dice up your TCHO dark chocolate discs and use any white chocolate that you prefer. To mash the candy canes, put them one by one into a food processor or lay them between layers of paper towels and use a cooking hammer to crack them into smaller bits.
Melt the TCHO dark chocolate, spread into a ¼ layer thick base in a cooking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Combine the melted white chocolate with half the candy cane crumbles, and reserve the other half to sprinkle on top of the finished product. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, then voila!
2. French Chocolate Bark

Toppings will include 1 cup of dried apricots, 1 cup whole roasted cashews (salted, preferably), and ½ cup dried cranberries, but feel free to add or sub-in any other nuts or dried fruits that you like. Melt the chocolates together in a heatsafe bowl, then spread out onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle on the cashews and dried fruit while the chocolate is still melted and soft.
Finally, let firm for two hours, then cut into 1 by 3 inch pieces when you’re ready to serve!
