Sweetheart Bark: Valentine’s Candy Chocolate Bark

Picking a color or flavor theme for the chocolate bark helps make a cohesive look and flavor profile. The bark featured here is a Strawberries and Cream flavor theme with loads of pink. 

I listed the specific candies I used in the Recipe Ingredients below as a guide. Any candy may be used.

This recipe is a great project to do with kids too since the candy can be added in any way and it chills, ready to eat within about an hour (chilling time may vary depending on conditions).

  • 16 ounces Bittersweet Chocolate; bars or chips (I used Ghirardelli Bittersweet Chocolate bars, chopped)
  • 1 ½ cups (approximately) assorted Valentine’s candy*

Candy used for the Strawberries and Cream flavor bark shown here (for a guide; any Valentine's candy may be used):


  1. Line a large baking sheet with sides with parchment paper.
  2. Place chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and heat according to package instructions to melt the chocolate. For chopped bars: Microwave for 1 minutes at 50% power, stir and repeat for 15 seconds at 50% power, stirring after each heating until chocolate has melted and is creamy in texture. Pour the chocolate onto the prepared baking sheet and smooth out to about 1/8-inch thickness.
  3. Place candy in the melted chocolate and place in the refrigerator to completely cool until solid. Cut into pieces.
