Campfire Bark

Happy National Chocolate Day! I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than to celebrate chocolate, too! Lucky me! In honor of the special occasions, I made you some chocolate bark; campfire bark to be exact! Have you ever made candy bark before? I’m addicted. I make a crunchy peppermint dark chocolate bark for Christmas so I thought Fall and Halloween deserved a bark all their own. This bark isn’t for the faint of heart, though. It’s incredibly sweet and chocolatey; a little bite goes a long way. The base is chocolate studded with crunchy cereal then topped with marshmallow and cookie butter. This is better than a S’more. Barks are super simple and fast to make! Plus, YOU get to choose what goes into it! It’s very versatile. I dream about which bark I can make next. Campfire bark is the perfect treat for any Halloween party; the perfect pick up and eat snack. Happy Halloween Week!

Our ingredient line up:

From Top Left to Right: Golden grahams cereal, cookie butter (this is from Trader Joe’s, if you don’t have a TJ’s near you, look for Speculoos in your peanut butter aisle), marshmallow fluff, and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Over a make shift double boiler, melt your chocolate. You might be tempted to put your chocolate into the microwave but don’t. There are greater chances of it seizing on you and you will be back at square one. Heating it in a bowl over a pot of simmering water, will allow you to keep an eye on it as it melts. Once melted, mix in the cereal and spread on a baking sheet. Parchment paper or a silpat are key here.

Then, we get real fancy. Our heated marshmallow fluff is plopped down onto the chocolate. We use a tip of a knife to swirl the fluff into the chocolate.

Just when you thought this decadent madness was finished, cookie butter is drizzled over everything. Have you had cookie butter? I never buy it because I could eat it by the jar.

The bark needs to set in the fridge for a bit then we can break it into pieces.

Instructions
  1. In a double boiler or a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water, place chocolate chips. Stir occasionally until chocolate is melted and smooth.

  2. Take chocolate off the heat and stir in cereal. On a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet, spread chocolate mixture into an even layer.

  3. Place into the fridge and let almost set, about 10 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, place marshmallow fluff into a heatproof bowl and put into the microwave for about 15 seconds. Take chocolate mixture out of the fridge and plop the fluff all over the chocolate.

  5. Using a knife, gently swirl the marshmallow fluff so it spreads out and into the chocolate.

  6. Place cookie butter into a heatproof bowl and heat for 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. Drizzle cookie butter all over chocolate and marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired.

  7. Put mixture back into the fridge and let it fully set, about 30-45 minutes. Once set, break apart into pieces and enjoy. Store in the fridge for 1 week.
