How To Make Chocolate Bark

Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark Recipe

1. Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark Recipe

Classic peppermint bark is one of the most popular holiday snacks around.

Whether it’s store-bought or homemade, you’ll likely get a package at some point this festive season. 

It’s layered with white and dark chocolate, which perfectly balance each other out. Then it’s topped with crushed candy canes. 

Cooling peppermint and rich chocolate are an incredible winter wonderland treat. So make a big batch and watch it disappear!

2. Christmas Chocolate Bark 

This Christmas chocolate bark recipe is sweet, chocolatey, and refreshingly minty. 

Rice Krispies give it a delicious crispy texture that’s dreamy against the smooth chocolate.

Top it all off with festive candies and crushed candy canes for a treat that’s vibrant, flavorful, and full of crunch.

3. Saltine Toffee Bark (AKA Christmas Crack) 

Salty, sweet, and borderline addictive, I have a feeling you’ll crave this all year.

It starts with saltine crackers covered in simple yet delicious toffee. Then it’s covered in a layer of chocolate.

Sprinkle a layer of chopped pecans and Heath bars, and it becomes dangerously delish.

4. White Chocolate Christmas Bark 

White chocolate Christmas bark is fun, delicious, and oh-so-pretty. 

Swirl red and green melted chocolate into beautiful white chocolate for a super festive effect.

This is a great time to get creative and have fun. 

Then top it with red and green chocolate candies and festive sprinkles.

Top tip: make this with different colors to go with any holiday! Orange and purple would be ideal for Halloween.

5. Cranberry Pistachio Bark 

Check out this yummy recipe if you’re hoping for something with a little less artificial color and sugar.

Instead of M&Ms and food coloring, it uses healthy and delicious ingredients to incorporate festive colors. 

All you need is salty pistachios, tart cranberries, and sweet white chocolate. These three ingredients create an excellent balance of flavors.

And the chewy, crunchy, creamy textures are a delight! 

6. Sweet and Salty Chocolate Bark 

Sweet and salty chocolate bark is just like a candy bar. Only it’s way easier to make at home!

You’ll use delicious milk chocolate for the base. Then, add caramel over the top, and its buttery sweetness makes the whole thing ultra craveable. 

Top it with peanuts and pretzels for crunch and a hint of saltiness. Yummy!

7. Oreo Peppermint Bark 

If you’re a fan of cookies and cream, this bark should definitely be on your Christmas list. 

White chocolate and crushed Oreos combined to make a super tasty cookies and cream chocolate bark everyone will go nuts for.

It’s crunchy, rich, and looks terrific to boot.

For classic Oreo flavor with a minty twist, this one is a must-make. 

8. Loaded Christmas Bark 

One look at the ingredient list, and you’ll see why this is called ‘loaded’ Christmas bark.

Chocolatey, colorful, and jam-packed with Oreos, pretzels, peanuts, M&M’s, and sprinkles, it’s sweet, salty, fun, and flavorful. 

This is sure to be a crowd favorite, and the kids will love it. 

9. Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Bark with Sea Salt 

I love the flavors of this dark chocolate and peanut butter bark. It’s a little more grown-up than some of the other recipes (so you won’t have to share!).

Dark chocolate isn’t always the most popular, but when combined with sweet and salty peanut butter? It’s divine. 

Add a little sea salt to enhance the flavors, and this is one recipe you’ll make again and again.

10. Dark Chocolate Bark with Cranberries, Pepitas, Pretzels & Popcorn 

Here’s another dark chocolate bark that’s full of yummy holiday snacks. 

The salty toppings with the rich, intense chocolate are such a treat. And the popcorn has a unique texture I just can’t get enough of.

Plus, you’ll add cranberries to balance the saltiness and add a bright and chewy element.

11. Turtle Bark 

Turtle bark is a twist on a classic chocolate delight. Full of pecans, caramel, and chocolate, it’s a dream come true.

The sea salt is optional, but I love how it enhances all of the sweet and delicious flavors. 

Either way, this turtle bark is decadent and delicious. 

12. Cranberry, Chocolate & Almond Bark 

Cranberry, chocolate, and almond bark is quick and dangerously easy to make. 

The nutty almonds have a fantastic crunch and flavor, while the cranberries are tart and chewy.

Sprinkle them on top of any chocolate of your choice, and dig in!

13. Cookies and Cream Breakaway 

Since one recipe didn’t feel enough, here’s another one for the Oreo lovers. 

All you need is white chocolate and crushed Oreos. Mix the two, and they transform into an addictive dessert. 

And don’t be afraid to experiment! I’ve made this with all kinds of Oreo flavors (and colors), and it’s always a hit.

14. Salted Pecan Dark Chocolate Bark 

Salted pecans taste incredible with dark chocolate.

But instead of coating a few nuts with a bit of chocolate, this recipe lets you cover a whole lot of chocolate with a ton of nuts!

Simple and super tasty, it’s also low-carb, keto, vegan, and gluten-free. It’s a fantastic treat for any party or cookie tin.

15. Dark Chocolate Pecan Toffee Bark 

This bark recipe is rich, flavorful, and perfect for the holidays. 

It starts with a dark chocolate layer covered with pecan pieces and toffee. The sweet, buttery, and nutty flavors go so well with deep chocolate. 

I love this recipe for Christmas potlucks and other special occasions. It’s always a hit!

16. Cherry Cashew Chocolate Bark 

Cherries and cashews are a wonderful topping for this Christmas bark. 

You’ll make a simple swirl using semi-sweet and white chocolate. Then top it off with sweet and slightly tart cherries before it hardens.

Just be sure to chop the nuts before you add them. If you leave them whole, they might be too much crunch for one mouthful.

17. Melted Snowman Chocolate Bark

How stinkin’ cute are these melted snowmen? They’re so simple but insanely effective.

This recipe will put a smile on everyone’s face – even the Scrooge of the bunch. And all you need is white chocolate and a few simple ingredients.

You’ll have a blast decorating these snowman treats. So get the kids involved and have fun!

18. Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallow Bark

This bark recipe is a delicious classic with a sweet twist. 

White and dark chocolate layers get a little more holiday cheer with cool peppermint and fluffy marshmallows.

This crunchy and chewy peppermint bark will be on your mind well into the New Year. 

19. Gingerbread House White Chocolate Bark 

If you’re sick of trying to get that gingerbread house to stand up, stick with me on this one. 

This Christmas bark recipe has all of the ingredients you’d find on a gingerbread house, from the white chocolate to the tasty toppings.

It even has pieces of gingerbread cookies!

So while it might not be a prize-winning house, it’s super tasty and effortless to make.

20. Chocolate Pomegranate Bark 

Fruity, tart, and a little bit salty, this chocolate and pomegranate bark is super unique.

The red and green colors of pomegranate seeds and pistachios are beautiful, and better yet, it’s all natural!

This bark is great for snacking since it’s full of antioxidants. So make a big batch and munch on it all day long.

21. White Chocolate Bark with Candied Ginger & Pistachios 

White chocolate is the perfect base for the intense flavors of candied ginger and pistachios.

It really allows all of the ingredients to shine, where dark chocolate would likely overpower it.

That said, I bet this would still be amazing with dark chocolate. So maybe try both and let me know which you liked best! 

22. Healthy Festive Frozen Yogurt Bark 

Frozen yogurt bark is a healthy alternative to chocolate. Top it with fresh fruit for a delicious, guilt-free snack. 

Kids will love this, and they’ll have a blast decorating too!

Plus, you can use any yogurt, including vegan and allergen-friendly versions. So it’s super inclusive!

23. Frozen Yogurt Bark with Berries 

I know this looks similar to the recipe above, but there are a few key differences.

The one above just calls for yogurt. So get your fave and freeze it with the toppings.

In this version, you’ll use a mixture of vanilla honey yogurt, powdered sugar, heavy cream, and lime juice.

It makes it much creamier!

This recipe is a hit, especially with kids. 

24. Maple Sweetened Chocolate Almond Bark 

This sophisticated chocolate bark recipe is to-die-for. 

Almond and coconut are a spectacular pair, and when you add maple syrup, dark chocolate, and roasted almonds? It’s heavenly.

25. Triple Chocolate S’mores Bark 

Yes, I saved the best for last. This decadent s’mores bark is full of the best ingredients. 

Layer Hershey’s chocolate, Graham Cracker pieces, and tiny marshmallow bits on top of a white and dark chocolate swirl.

It may not be your first thought when it comes to the holidays, but this one will be on the nice list for eternity.
