Are you one of those people who just dreads Valentine’s day or do you look forward to it? Whether you do or don’t, make this recipe tonight and your sweet tooth will thank you, and kids will love you!! That’s why I decided to name it Sweet Tooth Valentine’s Day Bark, because you can basically throw whatever your candy kryptonite is on top of high quality chocolate to create a treat that would make dentists cower in the corner. Oh yes, it’s true. (I am in no way suggesting that you shouldn’t take care of your teeth.)
This recipe for Sweet Tooth Valentine’s Day Bark is super easy and really fun to make, especially if you have culinary inclined little kids, it’s the perfect recipe for them to get creative with and hard to mess up.
I do consider myself a bit of a chocolate snob, and I only like using high quality chocolate in my recipes. For Sweet Tooth Valentine’s Day Bark, I used semi-sweet chocolate Ghirardelli bars and white chocolate Ghirardelli melting wafers. Using a great tasting chocolate will take your valentine’s day treats to a whole new level! I would advise not using chocolate chips for this recipe.
Simply melt the chocolates in the microwave on half power until smooth, then spread the milk chocolate over the bottom of a baking sheet. Thoroughly mix a few drops of red food coloring into the white chocolate then immediately drizzle it over and drag a knife or skewer through it (this makes it look pretty).
Then top with candies, starting with the largest and working your way down to the sprinkles last. Then comes the hard part; you have to wait for it to set up. This take about an hour, then you can break it apart and have a ball satisfying your sweet tooth or make adorable little Sweet Tooth Valentine’s Day Bark goodie bags for your child’s school valentine’s day party, or your work party or whatever you like! Just make sure you store it in your refrigerator, or you’ll have melt city all over your hands 🙂
