The easiest Valentine’s sweet treat you can make! This Valentine’s Candy Bark makes a perfect treat to make and give!
Hey guys!!!! So this was my first week back in the blogging saddle after having a fabulous holiday break. Let’s just say it was not a successful first day back. I had planned to share with you some Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Meringues for our Valentine’s series. Well my chocolate seized and was unusable. That was okay, I would just drizzle them with red chocolate. They looked like I murdered a bunch of hearts. It was gruesome, not pretty, not cute and not romantic. Sooooo I am sharing with you one of my favorite Valentine’s Day recipes from last year. It is still a favorite around here!
I think this simple chocolate bark is even better than a box of chocolates and makes an easy valentines treat for the chocolate lovers in your life.
So this weekend Dean had a little cabin fever and I needed something to keep him busy and this Valentine’s Candy Bark was just the thing.
He had so much fun making this valentine’s day chocolate bark recipe and was so proud of himself. He especially loved eating it!
I love making chocolate bark recipes around the holidays, you can change it up to fit whatever occasion it is. Plus they are a no bake recipe which means they are quick and the kids can help. All you need is a few simple ingredients and you will have a Valentine’s Day Treat in no time.
This candy bark recipe is a great project to do with kids because you can set out their favorite candies and sprinkles and just let them go to town! You can even use smaller pans for the chocolate so each kid gets their own to decorate.
We used Valentine’s candy corn (found them at Wal-mart in the seasonal aisle), m&ms and sprinkles (Target dollar spot).
This is the perfect way to get your kids in the kitchen and let them create their own little masterpieces. When they are done, break up the bark into pieces and it makes great little homemade gifts for Valentine’s Day!!
Dean was so happy to help mama “cook”.
I love to give this bark out as gifts for Valentine’s, it is no bake, the kids can help and stays fresh at room temperature in an airtight container forever!
White almond bark – You can use white candy melts, white chocolate melting wafers or even white chocolate chips. White chocolate chips can be difficult to work with and I recommend using the almond bark. You could also make this with red or pink candy melts. You could even use milk chocolate or dark chocolate and skip the white chocolate.
Festive sprinkles – You will want some cute Valentine’s Sprinkles for this recipe and you should be able to find them in the seasonal section of any store.
Candy – I used candy corn and M&Ms but you can use any candy you like. Conversation hearts would look adorable on this bark.
You can top this with whatever you like but here are some things that are really good!
- Festive candy
- Oreo cookies
- Pretzel pieces
- Conversation hearts
- Cinnamon candies
- Candy hearts
How to make this Valentine Bark
- Melt the chocolate in 30-second intervals in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave until smooth, or in a double boiler on the stove.
- Prepare a 9×13 dish or baking sheet with foil lightly sprayed or oiled or parchment paper. I would avoid using wax paper as it would melt.
- Pour the melted chocolate in the pan and gently spread into an even layer.
- Top with all your favorite toppings while the chocolate is still melted.
- Let sit about 4 hours until cooled.
- Break into pieces and serve!
