That is, until I made this bark. Now I'm full of so much chocolatey goodness that I don't think I could ever so much as look at a bar of dark chocolate or a marshmallow again.
That's a lie. I just went back for seconds.
Anyway, this is a totally easy and fun dessert to put together. It takes literally minutes, involves fire and melted chocolate stuck to bowls and fingers that require cleaning. And by cleaning, I mean by way of tongue.
Oh, and the crumbs of graham crackers or extra few marshmallows left behind? They don't count. As we all know, there are no calories in crumbs. Since chocolate bark are technically broken pieces of chocolate, they also sort of count as crumbs. Go to town.
Vegan s'mores bark
- 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate (I used Guittard chips)
- 4 graham crackers
- Vegan marshmallows (I used Dandies)
- Melt chocolate by placing the chips in your microwave on medium (50%) heat for two minutes. Stir, then put them back in the microwave for thirty seconds. Continue doing this until chocolate is completely melted.
- Meanwhile, toast marshmallows by putting them under your broiler, over your stove burner or by using a blow torch. Honestly, I stuck each marshmallow to the end of a butter knife and used my stove burner; it worked perfectly. This is optional, but it adds a nice touch.
- Spread melted chocolate on waxed paper and, using a rubber or metal spatula, spread an even layer of your desired thickness.
- While chocolate is still liquid, place graham crackers and toasted marshmallows around in any way you desire. Make it fun! Allow chocolate to harden, then break it apart in random shapes. Store in an airtight container for up to a week.
