This delicious treat is for the holidays for really anytime you want something tasty and easy to make!

This is what you’ll need:

chocolate_bark_002

  • 1 small package of unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 package of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 small jar of honey
  • 1 small jar of coconut oil
  • 1-2 candy canes

As you can see, the measurements are not accurate beyond ‘get a package of this …”. It is really a very adaptable recipe so feel free to experiment!

coconut-dump

Pour the coconut into a large mixing bowl.

oil

Add coconut oil

mix-1

Now mix!

Add your honey … all of it, don’t be shy!

Mix well, until you have a nice soft mixture

Empty entire mixture on to a baking sheet and smooth to fit the entire tray.

Place the tray in the fridge to allow the mixture to get solid.

Leave it for about 30 minutes … or internet magic, until the next paragraph!

Time to melt the chocolate. I just use the microwave!

I find a 2 cup measuring cup is a great container to melt the chocolate in. It is easy to then pour out, as we’re gonna be doing in just a minute!

Mmm … melted chocolate

Time to smash those candy canes!

Don’t crush them too fine, you want some larger pieces to crunch on!

Add some of the finer pieces to the chocolate and mix well

Remove the tray from the fridge.

Pour out the chocolate and use a spatula to spread the chocolate until it covers the whole tray

sprinkle

Before the chocolate cools, sprinkle the remaining candy cane pieces on top.

For extra special taste, I also like to sprinkle a little sea salt on top. Trust me, it’s awesome!

Now the tray is ready to go back into the fridge and harden. Give it again about 30 minutes.

Once hardened, take the tray out of the fridge … time to break this sucker up!

snap

Lift one end and just start to break pieces off!

Just keep snapping and breaking until it all is broken up

Get all your pieces on a plate and serve right away. Kept at room temperature this bark will start to get soft again, so if guests aren’t coming right away, put plate back into the fridge until they arrive!

So there you have it, delicious Candy Cane Chocolate Bark!
