Marble Chocolate Bark



Our kitchen is vibrant and busy. Kids are talking in high decibels. We visiting our friends in the evening,  and we are making chocolate bark for them.


Who would not love marble chocolate bark jewelled with cranberries, pistachios and cashews. Chocolate expresses love, chocolate expresses happiness, chocolate elevates good mood.


As the melted chocolate is spread on the parchment sheet, kids create swirls and sprinkle Cranberries and nuts. The bark looks beautiful.
Some is packed for our friends and some kept in a box for us. We taste a piece each and get lost in the chocolaty goodness.


Customise chocolate bark by making swirls of dark chocolate in white chocolate or dark chocolate and milk chocolate. Add dry fruits and nuts of your choice.
