3-Ingredient Swirled Chocolate Bark


  • Author: Jasmine @ Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: About 12 pieces

Description

This swirled chocolate bark is the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert! It requires just 3 simple ingredients, is ready in about 15 minutes, and makes for a great gift or after dinner treat.


Ingredients

  • 8 oz. vegan semi sweet or dark chocolate chips (or chopped chocolate)
  • 4 oz. vegan white chocolate* (see notes)
  • 24 tablespoons freeze dried raspberries, as desired* (see notes)

Other topping ideas:

  • Raw or roasted nuts or seeds
  • Dried fruit
  • Freeze dried  fruit (such as strawberries or bananas) 
  • Candied ginger
  • Flaky salt

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the chocolate. Melt the semi sweet/dark chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second increments, stirring after each one, until the chocolate is smooth. Alternately, you can melt it in a double boiler. 
  3. Pour the chocolate onto the baking sheet (all in the middle) and then using a spatula, spread the chocolate evenly into a large rectangle, about 1/4 to 1/2-inches thick. Keep in mind that the chocolate won’t spread over the whole baking sheet (refer to photos in post).
  4. Melt the white chocolate. Using a spoon, add the white chocolate on top of the semi sweet in stripes, either the vertically or horizontally. Using a butter knife or a skewer, in the opposite direction of the stripes, drag through the surface of the chocolate to create the pattern, alternating the direction of the knife/skewer for each row. Continue through the whole surface. Refer to photos if you need help!
  5. Crush the freeze dried raspberries with your hands and sprinkle them over the bark. Add as little or as much as you would like. Add any additional toppings you are using here as well. 
  6. Set the baking sheet into the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes,  or until solid. Be sure that it is on a flat surface in the fridge.
  7. Remove the bark from the refrigerator and break it into about 12 pieces. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator to avoid melting. 

Notes

  • This is the brand of vegan white chocolate that we used. Vegan white chocolate is just starting to become more widely available so if you cannot find it in stores, you can order this other brand online here.
  • Freeze dried raspberries can be swapped for any other freeze dried fruit if you have a preference! Just be sure to use freeze dried. Fresh will spoil quickly and may even be a bit messy!
