Here is a quick, easy and totally versatile recipe from Good Housekeeping. This Independence Day version of “bark” makes it a fun holiday treat. Let the kids pitch in with the decorating, too.
What You’ll Need:
- 2 bags white chocolate chips (reserve 1 cup for swirls)
- Red and blue food coloring
- Assorted red, white, and blue sprinkles, chocolates, and candies
Step #1: Prepare Your Pan
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
Step #2: Melt the Chocolate
Empty 2 bags of white chocolate chips in large glass bowl, reserving 1 cup for later. Microwave for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds or until melted. Spread melted chocolate into a rectangular shape on the pan, about 1/4-thick.
Step #3: Make the Swirls
Microwave 1/2 cup reserved white chocolate chips in small microwave-safe bowl until melted, about 1 minute. Stir in a few drops of red food coloring. Dollop on the surface of the bark and use butter knife to swirl in decorative patterns (This is where you get to be artsy). Repeat with the other 1/2 cup white chocolate chips and blue food coloring.
Step#4: Add Your Toppings
Break out the red, white, and blue sprinkles, chocolates, candies and scatter all over the bark.
Step #5: Chill the Bark
Refrigerate bark 1 hour or until firm.
Step #6: Break It Up!
Break bark into pieces; store in a tightly sealed container in refrigerator up to 1 month.
