Recipe for chocolate Easter bark

I’ve wanted to try making our own chocolate bark for ages and finally got round to it whilst the children were on holiday. It was actually really simple with endless possibilities for different seasons and flavours. A basic chocolate bark is a really simple sheet of melted, tempered chocolate, usually covered with nuts, dried fruit or sweets. You can make it look pretty professional if you mix two types of chocolate, such as dark and white, and giving it a marbled effect. And in case you’re wondering, it’s called bark because it looks a little like the texture of a tree.
