What Ingredients do I need for the Chocolate Almond Bark?

To make this colorful Valentine’s Day treat, you will need just seven ingredients:

  • Milk Chocolate Chips: While you can use any brand of chocolate chips in the bark recipe, I like to use a high quality brand like Ghirardelli. Since chocolate is the main ingredient, quality and taste are very important!
  • White Chocolate Chips: Once again, I prefer to use high caliber brand of white chocolate. My preferred brand is Ghirardelli; however, you can use whatever brand you prefer!
  • Freeze Dried Strawberries: I love adding freeze dried strawberries to this candy! It adds contrast in sweetness and gives the bark more texture. I ordered a big jar of these freeze dried strawberries from Amazon!
  • Sliced Almonds: Thinly sliced almonds are swirled in to the chocolate for extra crunch!
  • Crispy Rice Cereal: This is a favorite of mine to add to the bark. I am a big fan of Hershey’s Krackel bars and adding in Rice Krispies Cereal gives this candy a similar texture.
  • Red or Pink Melting Chocolate: I used Wilton’s pink candy melts for this recipe. Since I do a lot of baking, I order the candy melts in bulk from Amazon because there is a variety of colors available. However, you could also just use white chocolate chips and add a drop of pink or red food coloring.
  • Valentine’s Sprinkles: The Valentine’s themed sprinkles give this delicious milk and white chocolate almond bark a  festive flare!

Notes

Notes:
1. Be careful when swirling chocolates not to swirl them too much or they will completely mix together and you will lose the swirled look.
2.Be sure to chop the strawberries into small pieces, otherwise they will be hard to coat with the chocolate and the bark won’t stay together as well.
