Chocolate bark is easily customized to personal taste, like Peanut Butter Swirl Bark, French Chocolate Bark and Everything Chocolate Bark. Chocolate bark can be topped with almost anything imaginable, from savory to sweet.
Martha Stewart's Peanut Butter Swirl Bark is a mix of bittersweet and milk chocolate topped with peanut butter. Melt the bittersweet chocolate and pour into a parchment-lined baking sheet in an even layer. Melt the milk chocolate and peanut butter and mix together; pour over the bittersweet chocolate layer. Swirl with a skewer or toothpick to give it a fancy look before refrigerating. Break and serve after it has had time to set.
Ina Garten, from the Food Network, makes her French Chocolate Bark using semisweet chocolate and bitter sweet chocolate. She also adds cashews, dried apricots and dried cranberries. Mix the two chocolates together and then pour out into a 9x10-inch rectangle. Sprinkle the fruit and nuts over the top and allow to bark to chill until firm.
For King Arthur Flour's recipe, melt semisweet chocolate and stir in toffee and chopped almonds. Spread into an 8-inch pan and top with broken chocolate sandwich cookies, pretzels and large-flake sea salt, then allow to chill for several hours before serving.
