Chocolate Love Bark

Make homemade chocolate bark for your Valentine this year; this recipe is allergy friendly and is easily adaptable to include your favorite add-ins.

The perfect Valentine's Day pair is chocolate and nuts. This homemade chocolate bark is super simple to make. Just combine dairy-free chocolate chips and your favorite nut: hazelnuts, pistachios, pecans, walnuts -- whatever you like. Chocolate Love Bark is also kid-friendly; ask kids to help you choose the nuts and sprinkle them onto the melted chocolate. This dessert is perfect for bringing to a Valentine’s Day party or for gifting; it keeps well wrapped up in plastic wrap or in a container.

Mix up this recipe by swapping in some dried fruit or add a dash of peppermint or almond extract for a unique flavor.

Chocolate Love Bark

Serves 14

1 cup dairy-free chocolate chunks, such as Dairy-Free Enjoy Life Foods

1 cup chopped nuts (I used slivered almonds)

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Melt the chocolate according to package using the stovetop. Transfer melted chocolate on top of parchment paper in a single layer, approximately 6 inches by 6 inches.

Evenly sprinkle nuts over the chocolate. Gently push nuts into the chocolate so they stick.

Place baking sheet in the freezer for 25-30 minutes until firm. Remove from freezer; break bark into 14 pieces; serve.
