Delicious Christmas bark

Make your own personalised Christmas gifts this year, with a few basic ingredients and your Thermomix.

Our delicious chocolate Christmas bark can be dressed up as a delicious stocking filler or kept under the tree as a handy gift for last-minute guests.

It’s perfect for catering for almost everyone (providing they like chocolate), so can help you tick your Christmas list off for your GFFs (gluten-free friends), dairy-avoiding and vegan friends, and even your no-nuts-for-me friends.

If you’ve attempted Chocolate Bark before and been eligible for a #nailedit Pinterest post, never fear!  Our Recipe Development team are sharing their guaranteed No Fail* top tips for the best bark.

Their top tips?

  • Use the best quality chocolate you can afford. We love using Callebaut chocolate
  • Tempered chocolate works best to give that lovely snap
  • Have fun with the toppings to really make it your own

Once your bark has set, snap them up into hand size pieces then wrap them up as elegantly or simply as you wish. We love the popping them into a reusable jar and finishing off with a burlap ribbon and hand-lettered card. If you’re super crafty, wrap your gift in some hand-made (or shop bought – we won’t tell) beeswax wrap.

Handy hint – in an Aussie summer, make sure to transport this in your ThermoServer that’s been pre-cooled so your gifts arrive looking crisp and tasty.  

Get in quick at our latest “Make it Merry” cooking classes to see how it’s done, and enjoy lots of other delicious Christmas and summer entertaining dishes as well.

 

Top Toppings

Gluten free – almonds or salted cashews

Nut free – Roasted coconut shavings

Vegan – use vegan dark chocolate and top with dried berries for extra sweetness
