This Sweetheart Chocolate Bark could not be simpler to make. The heart swirls are so much fun! You'll love my easy oven method of melting chocolate!
1ounce1 tablespoon white chocolate chips
freeze dried berries
Preheat your oven to 250 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
Place the dark chocolate on the lined baking sheet. Put it on the center rack in the oven for about 5 minutes, or until softened.
Place the white chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, then microwave for an additional 15 to 20 seconds, or until melted.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven. With an offset spatula, spread the chocolate to about 1/8 inch thick. Smack the pan down on the counter a few times to get out any air bubbles. This will give you a smooth surface. While still warm, drop small drops of white chocolate randomly over the dark chocolate. Using a toothpick or skewer, run the tip through each dot, creating a heart shape, wiping the tip with a paper towel between each heart. Once you've created all of your hearts, sprinkle on some crushed berries.
Allow the bark to sit for at least 1 hour or until solid. If necessary, place the sheet into the fridge or freezer briefly to harden.
If you plan to package the bark for gift-giving, be sure it's completely solid before handling and keep it in a cool, dry spot.
