Marshmallow & Walnut Bark

I recently experimented with some homemade easy chocolate barks and as I was trying out the Cookies'N'Cream bark with my son, I came up with another idea: Marshmallows (something my son loves too much for his own good) and Walnuts (I love walnuts!).

We had so much fun experimenting together and combining what we each like to make something delicious.  

It's quick enough to make that you still have time to create a batch, divide it into smaller portions in a baggie or small container, and tuck into stockings, or keep on hand as favors for holiday visitors!

This recipe is super simple (even if you don't own a microwave) and definitely something that you can do with kids without making a huge mess!

Marshmallows & Walnut Bark

2 cup dark chocolate morsels (or semi sweet chocolate morsels)
3/4 cup mini marshmallows
½ cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup white chocolate morsels

Items you will need:
  • cookie sheet lined with tin foil
  • small pot with some water in it and a metal bowl (or a microwave safe dish)
  • rubber or silicone spartula
  • spoon, piping bag or zip lock bag
Makes approximately 1/2 cookie sheet of Marshmallow-Walnut Bark.

Prep time: 5min
Cook time: 5min
Cool time: 20min

Total time: 30min

Step one:
Line your cookie sheet with tin foil, set aside.  Pour the dark chocolate morsels into the metal bowl (or microwave safe dish).

Step two:
Mix your marshmallows and walnuts together in a separatebowl, put aside.

Step three:
Melt the dark chocolate morsels in a double boiler (pot with hot water on stove, metal bowl placed on top) or in the microwave (10 second intervals, stirring in between).

Step four:
Once the dark chocolate morsels are completely melted, add about 2/3 of the marshmallow and walnut mixture and stir until everything is well combined and chocolate covered.

Step five:
Spread the marshmallow-walnut-dark chocolate mixture on the cookie sheet, approximately ½ inch thick, then place bowl back on double boiler and add the white chocolate morsels, so that they also melt.
(it's okay if it mixes with the dark chocolate leftovers).

Step six:
While the marshmallow-walnut-dark chocolate mixture is still melted sprinkle it with the remaining marshmallows and walnuts.

Step seven:
Drizzle with melted white chocolate.
You can either use a spoon and just drizzle all over or use a piping bag (or zip lock bag instead of piping bag). 

Step eight:
Place cookie sheet in the fridge for at least 20min.

Step nine:
Take the marshmallow-walnut bark off the cookie sheet and break it into smaller pieces.

  2. We are bark fanatics here. I make a chocolate bark and never thought of snazzing it up with these goodies. So glad you linked to our Tuesday Talk this week. Certainly gave me some ideas for the next time I make mine. Happy New Year. Hope to see you back next year.
