How to Make Strawberry Bark

Fill a saucepan with an inch of water and set a double-boiler inside. Melt dark/milk chocolate over medium heat. If you don’t have a double-boiler and need to use the microwave or a bowl, you’ll find detailed tempering directions in this post on Strawberry Truffles.

Once it has melted, pour over a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with half of the crushed strawberries and then pop it in the freezer.

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.

Pro tip: Wait until the white 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.

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.

How Do You Store White Chocolate Bark?

You’ll want to store it in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to a week.

  1. I made this when you featured it in Dec. 2019. It was beautiful and easy, but I have to admit I had some trouble getting the “brown” chocolate layer to stick to the white “chocolate” layer for some reason for some batches. Those freeze-dried strawberries are little chewy bits of goodness, gotta tell ya. I needed to make a lot of this, though, so I bought a big wonkin’ can and misjudged the amount. Because, 6 oz. is a can the size of my head. So now I have a huge amount of strawberries that I would like to bake with. It would be great if you could feature some recipes with fds for me to use them up in.

  2. Absolutely amazing!!!
    Big wow factor for such a little effort

  3. so freaking good. I’m making again!!!
