Christmas Grinch Bark, easy to work with candy melts and a combination of holiday sprinkles, is a fun festive way to rbing in the holidays without baking. Chocolate bark also goes great for food gift giving as well!
Place a sheet of parchment paper onto a baking sheet. Set tray aside.
Add dark green candy melts into a resealable sandwich bag but do not seal shut.
In a separate bowl, add vibrant green candy melts. Microwave on 50% power for 60 seconds. Stir candy. Return bowl to microwave, heating, and stirring until fully melted. Set bowl aside and keep warm.
Now place the bag of candy melts into a microwave. Heat for 30 seconds at 50% power. Knead bag and flip over. Return baggie to the microwave and continue to heat and knead until candy melts are completely melted.
Seal the bag and snip a tiny opening in the corn tip of the bag.
Working quickly, spread the vibrant green candy melts (the ones from the bowl) onto the prepared parchment paper until about 1/8" thick.
Taking the baggie, draw linear lines of the dark green candy melts across the top of the vibrant sheet of melts.
Drag a knife through each end of the green alternating the end you start the knife at.
Sprinkle bark with candy hearts, green candy pearls, and holiday sprinkles. Lightly press down if needed.
Let chocolate bark stand to harden.
Once hard, break into small pieces before serving.
Store any leftover candy bark in a sealed container at room temperature.
Can you freeze chocolate bark? Yes! You can freeze extra Grinch bark in a ziplock bag or airtight container for up to 2 months. It is best not to freeze individual bags of melting chocolate (prior to melting) as moisture can get into the melt and separate upon heat. Can white chocolate or regular chocolate be used? Absolutely. Any type of real chocolate can be used to make bark and it can even be layered. In fact, a combination of Mint and White chocolate works great for Grinch-Inspired Themes! However, please use the instructions specific to melt the kind of chocolate you are working with. This recipe is only specifically for candy melts and changes when dealing with regular chocolate.
