Wondering how to say “Merry Christmas” to many without breaking the bank? Homemade baked goods, of course! I decided to make goodie bags for my students in anticipation of the holidays, but with so many tantalizing recipes showing up on my favorite cooking blogs, I had a hard time choosing what to make first. Eventually I decided to start with something that’s simple and classic, but with a fun twist: cake batter chocolate bark! It really could not be easier to make this special treat. Looks like the holidays are here…
6 ounces dark chocolate
12 ounces white chocolate
3 teaspoons white cake mix (I used Funfetti)
Rainbow sprinkles or other festive toppings
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Melt dark chocolate in the microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring in between. When chocolate has liquefied, pour it onto the parchment paper and smooth it over the sheet with a spatula. Freeze for 10 minutes.
Melt white chocolate, again in 20 second intervals. When white chocolate has liquefied, stir in cake mix until smooth and let sit for three minutes. Remove the baking sheet with frozen chocolate from freezer and pour white chocolate mixture on top. Smooth with a spatula and immediately cover with sprinkles. Freeze for 20 more minutes.
Remove sheet from the freezer and break bark into chunks. Try not to eat it all at once! Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
