Ingredients you’ll need to make this vegan holiday chocolate bark

  • Chocolate. You can use a chocolate bar or chocolate chips and melt it with¬†coconut oil. This will make your chocolate melt smoothly for the base chocolate layer for this bark.
  • Pretzels. Place these whole or crushed over the melted chocolate. It adds a crunchy layer to this bark. It also adds the perfect balance of salty to this sweet!
  • Graham Crackers. I only used one whole graham cracker for this since I didn’t want to add too much to the bark, but it adds such a nice crunch and extra bit of salty to the sweet chocolate.
  • Marshmallows. The perfect, most festive holiday addition to this bark! They actually stay quite soft even after keeping in the freezer to harden.
  • Homemade Vegan Peanut Butter Caramel OR Regular Natural Peanut Butter. I recreated the viral Vegan Caramel Apple Bark this fall, and I used vegan peanut butter caramel sauce. It is absolutely delicious to add to this bark, however, you can simply use regular creamy peanut butter here.
  • Sprinkles. Optional, but adds some extra holiday pizzazz.
  • Optional add-ins: Other ingredients I think would be delicious on this holiday bark is crushed candy canes or crushed oreos. You can definitely add anything else you’d like!

Tips on making this holiday chocolate bark

  • Melt your chocolate in the microwave in 25-30 second increments with coconut oil. The coconut oil will help the chocolate become very smooth, and the 25-30 second increments will prevent the chocolate from hardening. Make sure to stir in between each increment so the chocolate will become smooth and easy to spread.
  • Save 1/4 of your melted chocolate. This extra chocolate you melted will be drizzled on top of all your ingredients for an extra indulgent flavour!
  • Press your toppings into the melted chocolate. This will ensure that they stay in place when it’s freezing and will prevent your toppings from falling out when cutting the bark into squares. Some toppings will of course fall out when you cut the chocolate, but pressing them just helps them stay a little more stuck, you know?

How to store your vegan chocolate bark

Place in a container and keep in the freezer for up to one month. I would not recommend keeping in the fridge unless you are planning on eating it within the same day. It will get too soft in the fridge and holds best in the freezer.
