Crazy Good Chocolate Bark

Chocolate Bark is the easiest sweet and tasty treat or snack you will ever whip up at home. It requires simple, real food ingredients and is prepped in minutes! It's an easy and better-for-you festive treat that is perfect for the holidays, or really any occasion.
All you need are 6 simple (and completely customizable!) ingredients – chocolate, pumpkin seeds, dried cherries, coconut flakes, goji berries and any type of nuts. This homemade treat makes the perfect gift!
Why you will love this homemade chocolate bark:
Simple Recipe – Absolutely anyone can make this recipe! It requires nearly zero effort, and the ability to work a microwave.
Giftable – Pack up little packages for gifting! This is a fabulous homemade gift to give out for the holidays, to teachers or to neighbors.
Completely Customizable – Go *nuts* (get it, heh) with your favorite toppings! Add whatever toppings you like best – this is your party, after all, and the flavor combinations are endless!
I love this chocolate almond bark so much as it’s so customizable. Here are a few ways to change the recipe or make it your own. The possibilities are endless – get creative!
Dark chocolate – I like using 60 or 70% cacao, but any percentage will work. You can use a high-quality chocolate bar or chocolate chips.
Almonds – any kind of nut will work. Try peanuts, cashews, pecans, walnuts, pistachios, or hazelnuts.
Shredded coconut – coconut flakes will work instead. You can leave it out if you don’t like coconut.
Dried cherries – most dried fruit will work instead! Try dried cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, oranges, or apricots. You can also try freeze-dried fruit if you can’t find dried.
Here are some additions to change up the flavors:
Ginger – fresh or candied
Spices – cinnamon or ginger would be delicious.
Crushed candy canes – a fun way to add peppermint to the mix. Perfect during the holiday season!
Course Dessert, Snack


  • 2 cups chocolate chips or chopped up chocolate bars
  • 1/4 cup almonds, sliced
  • 1/4 cup goji berries
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  • Line a 9x13 pan, or rimmed baking sheet, with parchment paper. Set aside.
    Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl in 45-second intervals, stirring in between. Don't overcook the chocolate (when there are a few small pieces left, stop microwaving and just stir the chocolate until the remaining pieces melt).
    Spread melted chocolate onto prepared pan. If using a 9x13 pan, spread chocolate to edges of pan. For a baking sheet your chocolate should be about ¼" thick (the chocolate won't fill the entire baking sheet).
    Sprinkle chocolate with goji berries, coconut flakes ,pumpkin seeds, and almonds. Finish with sprinkling the sea salt (see notes).
    Allow chocolate to either harden at room temp, or you can place in the fridge. It will take about 2 hours at room temp or about 30 minutes in the fridge.
    Break into desired sized pieces or use a sharp knife to cut.
    I like to sprinkle with sea salt after the chocolate has just started to set so that it sits nicely on the top of the chocolate and doesn't sink in. If setting in the fridge, let set for about 10 minutes before adding salt. If setting at room temp, give it about 30 minutes before adding salt.
    Store in an airtight container. Will stay fresh at room temperature for up to a week or 2-3 weeks if stored in the fridge. You can also store in the fridge for up to 3 months.
