You know by now that I kinda have a thing for s’mores.
I can’t get enough of that flavor! Mallows and grahams and chocolate—oh my. So when I decided to go the edible gift route for Christmas this year, I just knew S’mores Bark
had to make the cut.
Here’s something you should know about making homemade chocolate bark: It’s the easiest thing to do EVER. And it looks pretty fancy, too, so people will likely think it came from a real-live candy shop. Take all the credit and wow them with your newfound chocolatier skills! This is one seriously delicious holiday gift – for your friends, for your family, for that weird neighbor across the street, for Santa on Christmas Eve, even for you.
Let’s spread the chocolatey Christmas cheer!
First, gather your ingredients. It’s best to prepare everything ahead of time (and by “prepare,” I mean break up the graham crackers into coarse chunks and…that’s it) because once you’ve made the warm, melted chocolate, you’ve got to work quickly.
Melt the white chocolate chips in a double boiler on the stovetop (it’s easier to set up than it sounds, trust me!). Then, using an offset spatula, spread the chocolate into a thin, even layer on a lined baking sheet. Let the chocolate set for an hour or so in the fridge…
Then melt the dark chocolate chips and spread them the same way over the white chocolate. DROOL.
Working quickly, sprinkle those chopped grahams and mini mallows on top of the warm chocolate. Now place it all back in the fridge for a couple hours to harden and set and transform into magically delicious chocolate bark.
Once it’s set, use the tip of a sharp knife to break it into smaller pieces.
Divvy it all up among a few bags to give away as gifts, serve it at your next holiday gathering or keep a stash for yourself (I promise I won’t tell). One bite and you’ll be singing Christmas carols about s’mores all the way through the New Year! Stephanie (aka Girl Versus Dough) joined Tablespoon to share her adventures in the kitchen.
