Are you a choco-aholic?
Don’t feel guilty, you are not alone 🙂 .
I can’t help it, give this girl dark chocolate and I am as happy as can be.
School is out for summer and it is time to put my kids to work. This is a recipe that anyone can make. You can toss anything into the melted chocolate, creating custom chocolates that taste like they come from an expensive chocolate shop. Other fun chocolate desserts your kids can make include these White Chocolate Fudge Bites and Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge.
Trader Joe’s Pound Plus chocolate bars are so easy to use when making candy. They are available in Dark Chocolate, Bittersweet, or Milk Chocolate. They are only $4.99 for the giant bar; a fabulous bargain!
For this recipe, we used just three ingredients:
- Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Bar
- Trader Joe’s Macadamia Nuts
- Trader Joe’s Tart Dried Cherries
(But my kids have already decided next time we are also putting in smashed potato chips LOL.)
This easy 3 ingredient chocolate bark is so easy to make.
We melted half of the pound bar of dark chocolate. Next, we broke it into squares and put them in a microwave safe dish. Melted the chocolate in 35 second increments. (We did this to prevent the chocolate from over cooking or burning.) Our chocolate was ready by the 4th increment of 35 seconds.) Stir the chocolate.
Add in 1 cup of macadamia nuts and 1/2 cup of the tart dried cherries and stir to blend. (Or mix in anything you want!!)
Dump the mixture onto a piece of wax paper in a small baking dish. Put into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill.
Break apart and enjoy. You can mix any of your favorite things into this chocolate. This recipe is so simple, even your kids can make it!
