Melted Chocolatey Goodness in Every Bite 

Milk chocolate chips, caramel nibs, mint chocolate candies and even some mint sandwich cookies make this recipe pop! The top of this chocolate bark resembles a mix of white chocolate and green mint that imitates a streak of emerald green that looks super festive in your spread and leaves your guests speechless, (but certainly asking for seconds!)

Perfect for any Occasion 

What’s cool about this DIY recipe is that it’s incredibly versatile! You can swap out the minty ingredients for other flavors including candied fruit or even nuts. The pretzels will still be there to provide an incredible crunchy texture while the melted chocolate takes care of the rest.

How Long Does it Take to Prepare?

This St. Patrick’s Day goodie only takes about an hour and a half until it’s ready to enjoy. That is, after you’ve got all of your ingredients together. The chocolate bark has to sit in the fridge for around an hour after it’s all combined in order to take a hardened form that can be cut up, served and enjoyed!
