If you know me well, you’ll know that I love things that are cheap, simple and effective. So while I love Pinterest, I usually simplify recipes and craft activities so they are as cheap and as simple as can be. Plus, most Pinterest recipes and crafts call for ingredients or supplies not always readily available in New Zealand, so I often have to modify to suit.
Like this pink chocolate bark. I added in ‘party’ to the title so it feels a bit fancier. As you’ll see down in the recipe, it’s so ridiculously simple, I almost feel bad calling it a recipe. Plus I don’t measure amounts when I’m making recipes up, so it’s a rough guide – just make it to your taste. I have made it a few times, for baby showers and little kids’ parties, and it’s great.
Pink Chocolate Party Bark
1 block white chocolate, or white buttons (I use Pam’s brand from PAK’nSAVE, or Whittakers white chocolate if I’m feeling extra generous)
1-3 Tablespoons oil (optional – I find this makes the melted chocolate a bit smoother)
A few drops red food colouring
Sprinkles (or as we say in New Zealand, hundreds and thousands)
Break chocolate into a microwave safe bowl. Add oil.
Melt chocolate in microwave until completely melted (check on it every 30 seconds).
Take out of microwave. Add food colouring and stir gently.
Pour into baking dish and smooth out with spatula.
Apply sprinkles liberally.
Place in the freezer until firm, and then chop roughly into pieces.
