We're "barking" up the right tree.

We're "barking" up the right tree.

This mocha hazelnut chocolate bark is super easy and great for gift-giving—if you can bear to part with it! Just one bite and you’ll be hooked, but the richness of the chocolate (we hope) will keep you from downing it all in one sitting.

To start, melt the chocolate (we used our favorite brand—Scharffen Berger’s 62% Cacao Mocha) until smooth and stir in a handful of chopped hazelnuts. Pour the melted chocolate onto a baking sheet that’s been lined with parchment paper and spread it out evenly. Sprinkle the chocolate with the remaining hazelnuts and put it in the fridge to set for a couple of hours. Once set, break your bark into bite-size pieces and enjoy.

If you’re feeling generous (we weren’t), we suggest putting pieces in clear gift bags and tying with a colorful ribbon.

Don’t let our recipe limit you though–any chocolate, nut, or even dried fruit will work here so choose your favorite combination.

Let us know how your bark turns out–we’re always eager to try new creations!

Until next time,
