Magic Mint Chocolate Bark

/

You've heard of the "Target Tax" right? You know, when you go into Target to pick up a pair of socks or refill a prescription and somehow you walk out of there spending $100 on stuff that you don't need, plus an overpriced $6 Starbucks coffee.

This was a Target Tax purchase. I went there to see if they had any Grinch decorations in the store and I ended up lingering too long around the candy section. These morsels were on an end-cap display filled with lots of other holiday stuff, just asking me to buy them. You know what that's like!

I'm not even a huge mint fan, but since these morsels said "Winter" on them, I figured they wouldn't be something I could easily find throughout the year, and like any good blogger who enjoys figuring out what to do with something after they purchase it, I picked up a bag.

I figured I would just make mint chocolate chip cookies with the package, but then a recipe for bark caught my eye. I'd never made bark before even though I know its incredibly easy to make. And since it took much less time than cookies would (well minus the chilling part) I made it right away.

Ingredients:
    • 1 10 oz. package Dark Chocolate and Mint Morsels
    • 1/3 cup roasted almonds, chopped
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 325. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Spread the morsels in an even layer on the paper, trying not to have too many of the same color next to each other.
3. Bake for 2 minutes. Remove from the oven and place the baking sheet on a wire rack. Use a toothpick to swirl the morsels together. Sprinkle the almonds on top.
4. Bang the baking sheet on the counter a few times to settle the almonds into the melted morsels. Transfer to the refrigerator and chill for at least 1 hour.
5. Break the bark into pieces. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Minty! I wish there were more of the mint morsels in the package since my bark is mostly brown and not green, but either way it sure it tasty!
