From another food blogger (theDecoratedCookie.com) comes this great idea for snowman chocolate bark. The directions were very easy to follow. And, the result is very cute. Just perfect for the winter season, especially for children of all ages.
Very few ingredients are needed. To make the bark, I used these ingredients: 16 ounces of Ghirardelli dark chocolate melts, 1 tablespoon shortening, Ghirardelli white candy melts, pretzel sticks, white sprinkles and decors, black and orange icing.
Place a silpat mat on a baking sheet. Melt dark chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave following the directions on the candy bag. Spread on the silpat mat to fill as much of the tray as possible. Arrange the white candy melts into snowmen. Add the broken pretzel sticks for the arms. Sprinkle the white sprinkles and decor around the bark. Decorate the snowman heads with the black and orange icing.
Place the baking tray in the refrigerator to set the bark for at least 30-45 minutes. At that time, the bark can be removed and broken into segments for serving. Individual bark pieces could be used as a garnish alongside an ice cream dessert.
