I love making chocolate bark. It goes back to my childhood. My dad loved bark, he would go cuckoo for it at Christmastime. Anyone who asked what dad wanted for Christmas was told Laura Secord Bark.
My dad was hard to buy for so we all took his shopping advice and he would end up with piles and piles of bark. He would then hoard the bark so it would last all year long.
Since I was also a huge chocolate bark fan I learned the only way to pry dad away from the Laura Secord was to impress him with other homemade variations.
I have so many amazing memories that revolve around chocolate bark. It always put a smile on my dad's face, and let's just say that was not an easy thing to do. So I take great joy in the fact that my chocolate treats made my dad smile.
Now every time I make them they make me smile too, and think about my dad. And his giant love of all things chocolate.
I encourage you to go bond over some chocolate with someone today. You're not just making treats, you're making memories. That's everything in life.
- Chocolate Chips - I used milk chocolate chips for this recipe. If you prefer dark chocolate you can use it.
- Peanut Butter Chips - Most stores carry these now. You can also grab them online if you need to.
- Shortening - This will make sure the peanut butter chips are smooth and easy to work with when making patterns.
- Toffee Bits - I used Skor bits as they are easily available in Canada. You can also use Heath bits.
How to Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Bark:
- First, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set that aside for when you need it.
- Next, grab a microwave safe bowl and toss in the milk chocolate chips. Pop that in the microwave to melt it until it's smooth.
- Then, in another microwave safe bowl, add the shortening and peanut butter chips. Place it in the microwave to melt it until it's smooth.
- Now, spoon alternating mixtures randomly on the parchment lined cookie sheet.
- Then, drag a butter knife through to make patterns with the mixtures. There is no right or wrong way to do this. Just have fun!
- Toss the toffee bits on top.
- Next, place the cookie sheet in the fridge to help it harden.
- Remove the cookie sheet from the fridge and break the bark into pieces.

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Bark
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
- In a microwave safe bowl melt the milk chocolate chips on medium heat for about 1 minute, check the chocolate by stirring it, if not melted you can turn on again for 30 seconds. Check and stir again. Repeat if necessary. The chocolate should be smooth.
- In a second microwave safe bowl combine the shortening and peanut butter chips and microwave on medium heat for 1 minute, check the peanut butter chips by stirring it, if not melted you can turn on again for 30 seconds. Check and stir again. Repeat if necessary. The peanut butter chips should be smooth.
- Spoon each one alternately in lines on the pan you line with parchment paper. Just add it randomly, doesn't need to be any rhyme or reason to it. Continue until all the melted chocolate and peanut butter is on the sheet. Now take a butter knife and start to pull it through the colours to create a marble effect. I like to do mine in lines and pull straight through. I like the look of it. But design yours any way your little heart desires.
- Toss the skor toffee bits on top.
- Place the cookie sheet in the fridge for about an hour to set up.
- Remove from the fridge and break into pieces.
- Serve with a big old chocolate and peanut butter smile!
