Chocolate Bark FAQs
What is the best way to melt chocolate?
I use a double boiler to melt chocolate. Many people prefer to use the microwave. Use the power on 50% so the chocolate melts properly.
Should I refridgerate the chocolate bark after it is set?
Let the chocolate set on the counter. If it is refrigerated too soon, it can develop condensation marks.
Where should the chocolate be stored?
Once you make the bark, store in a cool dry place.
How long can you keep bark after it is made?
It can keep for quite a while in a well-sealed container.

NotesNote 1: We use raw unsalted nuts for a "better for you option". Note 2: Cranberries, cherries, blueberries, apricots are all great choices. Note 3: You can use sweetened coconut if you prefer the bark a bit sweeter. Note 4: Himalayan salt is my choice. Kosher salt can be used. The salt adds a great pop to the bark. Note 5: Don't fill pot too much. The water should not be hitting the top pot of the double boiler. Note 6: It can take longer for chocolate to set in warmer months. If refrigerating, be aware that condensation can form on the bark.
