I’m not sure why Christmas has declared itself the chocolate bark holiday. Yet for some reason around this time of year, you can find these decadent chunks of chocolate in nearly every grocery store or at almost any holiday party. While I personally vote for it being around all year long, I’ve officially jumped on the Christmastime chocolate bark bandwagon.
I don’t normally have a huge sweet tooth, so I try to find any excuse I can to add a bit of bitterness or salt to desserts. This recipe for Coffee + Dark Chocolate Bark hit all those notes. I prefer dark chocolate that’s between 70% and 85% cacao, but you can use whatever type you like. (I also made a batch with semi-sweet chocolate chips and that turned out great!)
