St. Patrick's Day Bark

about 20 pieces

Chef notes

While chocolate bark is something that you typically think of enjoying around the holidays or Valentine’s Day, this festive treat is an easy and fun way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. It features white and dark chocolate, lots of green-hued candy decorations and a salty surprise that ensures it’s especially fit for the Irish holiday.

Chocolate bark is one of the easiest treats you can make, and this recipe will teach you how. This means it’s a great recipe to get the kids involved in because everyone can help prepare, decorate and break the bark into pieces to enjoy. To make this St. Patrick’s Day bark, start by melting semi-sweet chocolate chips with a little coconut oil, which will make the chocolate shiny when it hardens. Spread this mixture onto a baking sheet and sprinkle crushed pretzels and the extra Irish ingredient — crushed potato chips — onto the chocolate. After this first layer of chocolate has hardened in the fridge for about 15 minutes, pour a second layer of melted white chocolate on top and adorn with green M&M’s and sprinkles. Return the baking sheet to the fridge to harden for another 15 minutes or so. Once it’s solid, all that’s left to do is break it into pieces and dig in.

If you like the flavor of mint chocolate, add 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract to the white chocolate, or make this treat even more colorful and tint the white chocolate with green food coloring. If you're not a big fan of salty and sweet, omit the potato chips and  add more candy in the middle layer.

Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.


Microwave the semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon of coconut oil on high for 30 seconds at a time. Stir after each interval (it will usually take about 90 seconds total) until the chocolate is completely melted.


Pour the melted chocolate onto the baking sheet and, using an offset spatula, spread it in an even layer. Spread the chocolate out to cover most of the baking sheet. 


Sprinkle the crushed chips and pretzel pieces onto the chocolate. 


Place the baking sheet in the fridge for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the chocolate hardens.


Microwave the white chocolate and 1 teaspoon of coconut oil on high for 30 seconds at a time. Stir after each interval until the chocolate is completely melted. This will take about 90 seconds. 


Take the baking sheet out of the fridge and pour the white chocolate on top of the hardened semi-sweet chocolate. Using an offset spatula, spread in an even layer until it mostly covers the hardened chocolate layer. 


Decorate the white chocolate with green M&M's and as many green sprinkles as desired. 


Let the chocolate bark harden in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. Once the chocolate is solid, cut the bark into irregular shapes with a knife, or break pieces apart with your hands.
