Let the Valentine’s Day treats begin!
I’m kicking off the count down to heart day with an oh-so-easy recipe. This marbled raspberry bark might look fancy but it’s really just 4 ingredients that quickly come together to make the perfect Valentine’s Day treat.
It’s the perfect sweet for your galentines—just package it up in some cute treat bags and add bring over a bottle of bubbly. And if you want brownie points at work, make an extra batch to share with your coworkers. Oh an don’t forget to make some for your valentine, too!
Marbled Raspberry Dark Chocolate Valentine’s Day Bark
- Place the dark chocolate in a small glass bowl. Heat in microwave in 20 second increments until almost completely melted. Stir with a spatula until fully melted. Repeat with the white chocolate.
- Add a couple of drops of red oil based food coloring to the melted white chocolate until it’s the desired shade of pink.
- Immediately after, use an off-set spatula to spread out the dark chocolate onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat. Pour the pink tinted white chocolate on top and use a knife to swirl it into the dark chocolate. Top with freeze dried raspberries and allow it to harden (you can speed up this process by placing the entire tray in the refrigerator for 15 minutes). Once hard, break into 2-3” size pieces.
White chocolate can be really finicky to melt. Just a few degrees to hot and it becomes a clumpy mess. The fix? Have all your ingredients ready and melt the dark chocolate first. Then slowly melt the white chocolate in the microwave in 20 second increments, stopping it before it’s totally melted. Stir it like crazy using a spatula until it’s completely melted. If you wait to melt it completely in the microwave that’s when it will become too hot, trust me on this—it took me 2 attempts to get it right!
