Double Chocolate Bark with MIXED NUTS

I often think about it! I love chocolate anything and if I can have white and milk chocolate together… Oh My!!!

So, I made this mixed nuts double chocolate bark for the first time. I had never done it before but I was craving chocolate with different nuts in it and I said why not mix both chocolates LOL.

I had seen my friend Dana and other friends sharing barks a few times so I decided to try this out and I LOVE how it turned out!!!

This recipe couldn’t be easier to make, seriously. Of course, this is easy if your white chocolate doesn’t turn out bad, never melts and you have to run to the store and get a new one LOL. Yup! that happened to me and I was so freaking out. That’s why quality matters.

Thank God I had Dana to the rescue LOL. My wonderful hubby went to the store for me and found it so I could finish the recipe!

But again if you don’t get the wrong chocolate, everything is super easy to make. Haha

How to Make Double Chocolate Bark with MIXED NUTS

Ingredients:

  • White Chocolate – Chopped or white chocolate chips. I prefer high-quality because of the taste I love Nestle, Lindt, etc.
  • Semi-sweet Chocolate – Chopped. Again High-quality or your favorite, you can use dark chocolate too.
  • Mixed nuts – almonds, pecans, walnuts hazelnuts, pistachios, macadamias, cashews, peanuts, or your favorite ones.

Directions:

Melt each chocolate according to the directions. I used a double boiler but the microwave works too.

In a heat-proof large bowl or medium bowl over a pot with about an inch of water gently simmering.

Cook until the chocolate is almost entirely melted, stirring frequently with a heatproof rubber spatula, and remove from heat.

Once both are melted pour into a 9×9 pan lined with foil or parchment paper.

Drop dots of semi-sweet chocolate randomly on top of the white chocolate.

Using a toothpick, draw random swirls making 8s is the best way.

Sprinkle the mixed nuts evenly all over the chocolate.

Press down the largest nuts a little like almonds and cashews so they get more covered and integrated.

Let it cool for 3 to 4 hours or until it hardens enough. If you are in a hurry put it in the fridge checking every 30 minutes.

Once it has hardened enough, break apart.

Serve and enjoy!!!

Storing and freezing

Store bark in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

I don’t recommend freezing chocolate.

Baking Tips:

The microwave is an easy way to melt chocolate. Heat the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each. You don’t want to get impatient and skip a stir, and neither should you overdo it!

No microwave? Use a double boiler, it’s the best option. Place the chocolate in a large heat-proof bowl over a pot of gently simmering water. Cook until the chocolate is almost entirely melted, stirring frequently, and remove from heat. Keep stirring until all the lumps have melted. It’s critical to make sure that all condensation has been removed from the bottom of the bowl before scooping the chocolate onto the baking sheet (water and chocolate shouldn’t be mixed, especially white chocolate).

If you’re in a hurry, let the chocolate bark sit in the refrigerator. Your chocolate bark will be perfect after a few hours. But whenever possible let the chocolate bark cool at room temperature the chocolate can develop some light condensation on the surface when you bring it out from the fridge creating little swirls of dissolved sugar on top (that’s called sugar bloom).

I personally don’t like candy melt for chocolate barks, the taste is not really good. If the chocolate bark is for you and your family, you don’t need to worry about tempering chocolate, your favorite chocolate will do perfectly!

    I have already bought ingredients to make something really similar as a Christmas gift for a couple of people this year. I have dark and milk chocolate instead of the white, but I was planning for it to hopefully look a bit like this. Fingers crossed.

    Oh yummy Cami, these all look SO delicious but that chocolate bar is something I’m going to have to add to my list and try. We are always looking to try new desserts so I’ll be trying this one.

    Happy Holidays my dear.
