Variations:

  • Add Variety of Candy Melts – Feel free to melt white candy melts to drizzle over the top. White Chocolate Candy Christmas make for a fun and festive look on the Grinch Candy.
  • Sprinkles – Use different candies on top. You can use bright colors or different colors of M&M’s.
  • Mix in Nuts – Add nuts to the top or in the chocolate.
  • Peppermint Candy – To add to the fun and festive look, you can chop up some candy canes to add to the top of the bark. You can even add peppermint extract.
  • Use Different Chocolate – Try using white chocolate chips, milk chocolate or dark chocolate chips for a change. We like using candy melts as they come in a variety of colors.

Step by Step Instructions:

  • Step 1 – Prepare Baking Sheet – Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 5 – Then let the bark sit at room temperature until the chocolate hardens (about 2-3 hours).  Or you can put the mixture in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Then break bark into small pieces with hands or a knife.

Recipe Tips:

  • Room Temperature – Allow the chocolate bark recipe to come to room temperature before breaking so that the layers do not separate.
  • Break into Pieces – If the bark is difficult to break with your hands you can use a wooden spoon to gently help. Don’t break into sizes to small. I like to keep the pieces in larger pieces.
  • Melting Candy Melt – Slowly melt the candy melts in the microwave. You want to melt in 30 second intervals until candy melt is melted. Use a microwave safe bowl to melt the chocolate.
  • Line Baking Sheet – Line baking sheet with parchment paper before pouring the melted chocolate. This will help with cleanup.

Can I Make in Advance?

Yes, this is the perfect dessert to be made ahead of time. Not only is the recipe easy to make, but it is great to prepare ahead of all of your holiday baking.

This is my favorite way to make this as I can have it stocked and ready for any holiday gathering.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I Freeze?

If you want to freeze Grinch bark, allow it to harden after making. Then wrap chocolate candy Christmas bark in plastic wrap and place in a air tight freezer container. When you are ready to serve, thaw in the refrigerator.
This makes it possible to make the Grinch Bark ahead of time.

How to Store Leftovers:

Store any leftover Grinch Chocolate bark in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container.
