Jack and I were at the store picking out valentines for his class party and I turned around and saw a shelf full of Ghirardelli Strawberry Bark. I’m a huge sucker for dessert bark like Peppermint Bark and S’mores Bark and had never even considered a bark with fruit.

Mind.Officially.Blown.

I looked at the photo and the ingredients and thought “that’s it”? I had almost everything it required on hand leftover from the holiday baking orgy around Christmas. I only had to track down some freeze-dried strawberries to make this happen which I found at Trader Joes for under $4.

Hold onto your butts, it’s Ghirardelli Strawberry Bark makin’ time.

Helpful Ghirardelli Strawberry Bark Supply List

  1. Fill a saucepan with an inch of water and set a double-boiler inside. Melt dark/milk chocolate over medium heat. Once it has melted pour over a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with half of the crushed strawberries.Chocolate with dried strawberries2. While the dark/milk chocolate is in the freezer, clean the double boiler and add white chocolate chips. White chocolate is a notoriously finicky item to melt. You don’t want to stir it constantly, or it becomes a pasty lump. Wait until the chocolate is super shiny on top, and then give it a few gentle stirs. Mine still had a few lumps in it because I was scared to over-stir. Let me tell you a secret. Lean in close. It all eats the same.
    3. Pour the white chocolate over the frozen milk/dark chocolate. You may need to spread it a bit with a silicone spatula.

And um, eat it.

The packaging on the Ghirardelli Strawberry Bark said it is a “limited edition” product, but now that I can make my own, every day could be Strawberry Bark day. But that isn’t going to happen since I should probably make vegetables a priority most of the time.

Being a grown-up sucks sometimes.

Store in an air-tight container in the fridge. 

I would not use fresh strawberries as the juices will compromise the chocolate overtime.
