Last week we shared our favorite CBD hot chocolate recipes, but we were remiss in not giving you something sweet to pair them with.
Obviously we need to fix that mistake. And there’s no better way than with a recipe for CBD chocolate bark.
This tasty, chocolatey treat is perfect for snacking, and sharing.
CBD Chocolate Bark
First off, we love chocolate bark around the holidays. It’s the perfect little sweet treat for when a chocolate craving hits. We take an afternoon and make all kinds of it a few weeks in advance. And by New Year’s it’s almost all gone.
You can make it with all kinds of added flavors, use milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate. And it makes a beautiful homemade gift to bring as a hostess present or really for anyone on your list.
And, because it’s so simple, if you don’t have an afternoon to spare, it works just as well last minute (as long as you give it time in the fridge to harden).
This chocolate bark recipe is so easy to make. Here’s what you need – and I bet you have all of the ingredients in your pantry already.
- CBD Oil
- As many add-on combos as you like
Some of our favorite add-ons:
- Candy canes or peppermint, crushed
- Nuts (almonds, peanuts, walnuts, pistachios), crushed
- Oreo cookies, crumbled
- Dried cranberries
- Peanut butter cups, chopped up
- Peppermint M&Ms
Step #1: Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step #2: Melt the chocolate:
- In the microwave: in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second increments, stirring after each one. Don’t overdo it.
- On the stovetop: in a heat-proof bowl set over a saucepan of gently simmering water.
The chocolate is done when it’s about 90% melted—keep stirring off the heat and the pieces should completely dissolve.
Step #3: Quickly stir in your desired amount of CBD oil. Stir it really well.
Step #4: Spread the chocolate onto the parchment paper. Try to get it even – aim for about ¼″ thickness.
Step #5: Sprinkle your add on(s) on top of the chocolate.
Step #6: Put the tray in the fridge, or leave it on the counter to harden at room temp.
Step #7: Once the chocolate is completely hardened, use your hands to break it into smaller pieces. Keep it in the fridge for about a week, or freeze it in an air-tight container.
