I have a bit of a sweet tooth, yet I try to keep it in check with healthier options than a box of cookies or pint of (non-dairy) ice cream.
This was the perfect creation, to curb that chocolate craving.
I found these square popped thin cakes at our new Market Basket ((have you been?! We just got our first location and it is beyond amazing!)) They were the perfect base to my chocolate crack bark, adding a little more substance than just chocolate:
Start by lining your cookie sheet with parchment paper to prevent sticking.
Fill your sheet with enough popped treats to cover the bottom. You can break them up to fit in the corners ((it does not need to be perfect!))
Either use a microwave or double boiler to melt your chocolate
((I used a whole bag of semi-sweet— if I had dark chocolate, I would have used that)) in glass bowl with a tablespoon ((or two)) of coconut oil
If your are using a microwave, start with 30 second intervals, stirring it in between, until the chocolate becomes smooth.
Drizzle some melted chocolate on the popped treats
Add some raisins ((my favorite ”candy” is raisinets so dark chocolate and raisins is all I need- but the possibilities are endless- coconut, nuts, sprinkles, dried cherries or blueberries...))
Cover with the rest of your melted chocolate, set in the fridge ((if you are extra impatient, pop that baby in the freezer to enjoy even sooner!!))
Wait until the chocolate sets, break it apart and enjoy!! I added these to a Tupperware and kept in the fridge for a few days - I don’t think they lasted more than three before the whole container was devoured.
