I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Valentine's Heart Bark

While there are no exact measurements to making this bark I can tell you that I used approximately 8 ounces of white chocolate for the base and another 3-4 ounces of semi sweet chocolate for the swirl. You can also use coloured candy melts, but not chocolate chips. They are made to stay like chips when baked in a cookie so they won't melt properly for bark.



Melt white chocolate in a double boiler. Once it is melted pour onto a parchment lined baking sheet and spread.

Melt the smaller amount of semi-sweet chocolate. I just poppped this amount in the microwave. Heat on high for 20 seconds intervals, stirring each time until almost melted, then remove from microwave. The heat of the chocolate will melt the rest. This will ensure that your chocolate doesn't seize.

Drizzle the chocolate over the white chocolate and give it a swirl. 

Sit conversation hearts and candy-coated chocolates gently in the bark. Add sprinkles or whatever your little "heart" desires!




Set in the fridge 20-30 minutes, then break up. (Oops, not a good choice of words on Valentine's Day! Hope yours is happy)


Got the idea for this bark from
