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 strawberries | sustainablecooks.com2. 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.

Sprinkle with the remainder of the strawberries and pop it back in the freezer for 30 minutes.

Break apart with your hands or cut into squares.

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.

Recipe Notes

Store in an air-tight container in the fridge. 

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