Strawberry Peanut Butter Bark

Strawberry Bark is a recipe ‘sensation’ that has been circulating the internet for some time now. If there’s one trend I can get behind, it’s this viral Strawberry Bark. As soon as I saw this trend pop up, I had to make it. I mean, how cute are these?!
It’s the most fun twist on chocolate covered strawberries. And we already know how I feel about any sweet treat that involves a chocolate-peanut butter combo. Making this was truly a no-brainer.
Its a triple threat kinda treat: so easy, so delish, and so pretty. There are minimal ingredients involved. So ideal!
It's a quick and easy way to make chocolate covered strawberries for the perfect grab and go snack. The best part about this is because it’s made with fruit and chocolate, I’d argue it can also be enjoyed as a snack, not just a dessert. Who’s with me?
Strawberries are packed with vitamin C and antioxidants, which are naturally detoxifying and a great way to support your digestive system. And of course, vitamin C can be helpful in boosting your immune system, but did you know it’s great for your skin and can also boost collagen production? Might have to categorize this one as a superfood sweet treat!
I know the combination of peanut butter, chocolate, and strawberries sounds kind of strange, but it somehow just works well; it’s kind of like eating a chocolate peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich without the bread and a nice change from the frozen yogurt bark with berries.
Chocolate covered strawberries will always hold a place in my heart, but spreading peanut butter over the slices first makes the best frozen bark snack!
It was the melty dark chocolate and the peanut butter poured over top that had me drooling.
Why I love this recipe:
Quick and easy to make
Uses only 3 ingredients (plus oil to melt the chocolate)
Berries, chocolate, and peanut butter are a trio you must try
Perfect sweet and salty treat for parties, pot lucks, dessert platters or family gatherings. Or just an any time snack!
Good old peanut butter provides the best nut-buttery flavor and is a good source of healthy fats and protein. PB also contains a small amount of fiber and essential vitamins and minerals, such as magnesium, potassium, and zinc. I prefer to use a creamy, natural peanut butter made with just peanuts and salt – the less ingredients the better!
To add a healthy crunch you could top your bark with iron and magnesium-rich cacao nibs, crushed peanuts, plus some flaky sea salt. This is the most perfect little fruity dessert, sweet and salty frozen treat that tastes just as delicious as described on the internet.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups strawberries, fresh
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • Flaky sea salt - optional

Instructions

  • Line a large cutting board or baking sheet with a 9×13-inch piece of parchment paper. Or use a silicone baking mat.
    Cut the tops of the strawberries creating a flat surface. Slice each strawberry into thick slices. Place strawberries on parchment paper in rows, alternating their direction so the triangular end of each strawberry fits into the gaps in the previous row.
    Arrange them as closely as possible on the baking sheet so they touch each other so it creates a solid base layer to support the upper layers when frozen.
    Melt the peanut butter in the microwave for 15-20 seconds and drizzle or spread it into an even layer over the strawberries. Place the board in the freezer for 5 minutes while you prepare the chocolate.
    Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in small dish and microwave at 50% power with 30 second bursts stirring between each one until melted and smooth.
    Or use double boiler method - (pot of boiling water with a bowl resting on top) melt the chocolate chips and the coconut oil together.
    Pour the melted chocolate over the peanut butter and spread it into an even layer. Immediately top with a sprinkle of sea salt.
    Place the board back in the freezer for at least two hours to allow the layers to firm up and the chocolate to set.
    Break bark apart with your hands or cut into pieces with a knife and enjoy!
