Holiday bark – it’s everywhere during the holiday season, topped with just about everything! If you’re looking for a festive and tasty alternative to the traditional peppermint bark, this is the recipe for you! I bet you’ve never had chocolate bark like this before. I love the combination of sweet and salty and this chocolate bark with freeze-dried strawberries and pretzels hits the spot! It’s the easiest holiday treat to make and to give!
Just grab some chocolate chips, or chocolate melts, and get to melting! I recently switched over to using chocolate melts in most of my chocolate recipes because it sets without having to worry about tempering. To make the bark very pretty and festive, I also swirled the white and dark chocolate together. The swirls look so dainty! Top the chocolate off with slices of freeze-dried strawberries (or raspberries!), which I get from Trader Joe’s. I love the flavor combo of the fruit and chocolate – match made in heaven. I also added crushed pretzels, salted pistachios and dried cranberry. When you’re making this at home, have fun with the recipe and switch up the toppings! Try adding your favorite dried fruit and nuts such as dried apricot, cashews, macadamias, or even dried pineapple or orange! Or, how about kiwi?!
