The traditional chocolate bark, usually a chocolate sheet covered in various toppings, gets a lift with two new recipes. White Chocolate Cinnamon Almond Bark gets a boost from cinnamon, and a refreshing minty flavor from pure peppermint extract and crushed peppermint candy canes.
Chile Chocolate Almond Bark exchanges mint for almond crunch and white chocolate for dark. Can't decide? Make both.
For those who crave spice, fresh made fudge with dark and semi-sweet chocolate, walnuts, marshmallows, ancho chile, cayenne combines to make a thick, creamy, luscious Chile Chocolate Walnut Fudge that is simply irresistible.
Prefer something a little more refined? Throw together a batch of Ancho Almond Truffles. Here, chile chocolate fudge is mixed with chopped candied almonds, rolled in a mixture of cocoa and cayenne powder, and then dipped in dark chocolate and chilled. From bark to fudge, this year share your love of chocolate with the masses.
