Call the blogging police. I cheated a bit with the title of this post. There’s none of these in these barks,
and there’s none of these,
and there’s definitely none of these.
*Note* This post has been updated on December 14th. I learned I wasn’t supposed to include the Salted Caramel Recipe here on the blog but I could link you to it.
There’s just gooey caramel, good quality chocolate and lots of other yummy goodness that will be sure to bring a smile, and a few pounds, to the teachers or co-workers, or anyone else, on your holiday gift list.
Chocolate bark is one of my favorite ‘I’m feeling lazy but want to make something’ things to make. It’s unbelievably easy and takes less than 30 minutes to put together. It’s super versatile too. Go ahead and put your favorite ingredients in, or use whatever you have on hand, (which is exactly what I did with the ‘Tropical Christmas Bark’).
I came across the Salted Caramel recipe over on MissInformation’s blog and couldn’t resist giving it a try. While I was at it, I gathered some ingredients and made the ‘Tropical Christmas Bark’ which I adore since I’m a coconut freak (hey, it has cranberries so that kinda counts as Christmasy), and as luck would have it, I came across another recipe in today’s local paper which sounds awesome, but I haven’t tried it so proceed at your own risk. 😉 I’m just including it so I get to say ‘A Trio of Christmas Bark’ in the post title. Sounds better than ‘A duo’, right?
Now here’s the recipe I mentioned that was in today’s paper:
Just in case you haven’t had enough Chocolate Bark for one day, take a look at my Trader Joe’s Copycat Chocolate Bark. OH.MY.GAWD. It’s awesome!

Are you completely bored yet with hearing about my Birth Certificate fiasco? I know I am. Here’s the latest: I sent my Confirmation Certificate last Wednesday certified mail to them. As of today, they are saying they don’t have it, although the post office indicates it was received Monday at 9 a.m. ARRRGGGGHHHHHHH!
