DIY Gifts: Chocolate Bark with Toffee and Coconut

chocolate bark

There’s nothing like an edible gift. First, you can tailor it to the recipient’s tastes. Second, it doesn’t clutter up your house. And finally, if you don’t like it, someone else will ALWAYS take it.

I had the pleasure last week of helping my husband polish off a box of Caramel Delites Girl Scout cookies (if you’re old like me, you remember them as Samoas).

That yummy candy crunch paired with rich coconut and sweet chocolate was my inspiration for this bark – an easy yet impressive gift.

Just three ingredients:

Chocolate Bark with Toffee and Coconut:

  • 1 14 oz bag of Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Bag of Heath Toffee Bits
  • 1/2 cup toasted coconutĀ (I likeĀ unsweetened organic)

Heat a bag of chocolate chips in a sauce pan on the stove until it’s melted, then slather it in a thin layer onto a silpat on a baking sheet. Seriously, how did I live before my Silpat??

Quickly, while the chocolate is still very warm, sprinkle the coconut and toffee chips very liberally all over the chocolate. You can press it in with a piece of wax paper so it sticks in the chocolate better.

Stick the whole sheet in the freezer for 12 hours or overnight. The next day, break off the chocolate in large chips, and either eat right there standing up in the kitchen (it’s not just me, right?), or store in the freezer for hostess gifts.
