Chocolate bark is a fantastic thing, guys.
I love it because it’s QUICK, EASY, and you don’t even need a formal recipe.
You can put ALLLL kinds of things on bark, too. And use different types of chocolate.
You can make a whole sheet pan or make little bark bites like these Blackberry Bark Bites I made last year. Remember them? I posted them on my Instagram when I was working with Lily’s Chocolate, but they didn’t have a home on my site until now.
You can find that recipe below! (Psst… it’s even keto/low-carb friendly if you use Stevia-sweetened chocolate like Lily’s!)
I also wrote a tutorial on How to Make Chocolate Bark over on The Pioneer Woman: Food & Friends! I went a little nuts, guys.
You should have seen the look on the kids’ faces when all of these toppings were on the counter. It was like Christmas. Ha.
As for this recipe — bacon + blackberries might seem like a weird combination. Especially with chocolate.
Here was my thought process:
Fact: Chocolate covered bacon is tasty.
Fact: Chocolate covered blackberries is tasty.
Fact: This Bacon, Blackberry, and Egg Salad is tasty.
Therefore: Chocolate + bacon + blackberries should be tasty.
And it is.
