This Christmas holiday bark is such a cheerful diy Christmas gift or activity for the kids or the kid in you! This is a super easy Christmas recipe thats pretty much foolproof!
Rudolph the Reindeer chocolate bark is such an easy kid friendly, festive chocolate bark recipe that can be made entirely dairy free gluten free and vegan by using candied strawberries for the rudolph nose. get your kids in on the holiday food arts and crafts! All it takes is a trip to the bulk food store to pickup colorful healthy dairy free alternatives to candy for chocolate bark.
approx 415 grams of 70% dark or semisweet chocolate chips (I was a little short with one 255g bag of chocolate chips and its still doable but youll have less reindeer)
optional, 3 tbsp cocoa butter/cacao butter (to make it more milk chocolate)
3-3 2/3 tsp coconut sugar or sugar, or more to taste, kids may like it even sweeter, Use less if using semi sweet chocolate
optional, pinch of cinnamon
pretzels and colorful candies and dried fruit to make rudolphs reindeer face and to make ornaments around (i used large pretzels as my rudolph nose was big. I used candied strawberry and a red chocolate covered cherry for the nose, but if you can have dairy you can used colored M&Ms and mini pretzels. i used chocolate dabbed peppermint candies for the eyes. for healthy red and ornaments I used cranberries, barberries, and dried cherries and candied lime peel. Also Gluten free pretzels and cookies can be found at many grocers if needed.)
shredded coconut and sea salt flakes for the snowy decorations, sugar if desired too
marshmallows for a snowman (i didnt have them so i used a truffle but marshmallows are better)
line a sheet pan with parchment paper and melt chocolate over double boiler, bain marie or in microwave at 30 sec increments, stirring. stir in coconut sugar and cinnamon. once smooth pour over parchment. top with rudolph reindeer faces (to make pupils on peppermint candy eyes i used a drop of melted chocolate carefully applied with my pinky finger) and decorate with other festive colored toppings.
Rudolph the reindeer peppermint chocolate bark variation: add a few drops of peppermint oil and more of the peppermint candies and marshmallows if desired or mini candy canes on the bark.
