Want to make a coconut, almond and chocolate bark.
Ive been researching recipes and 99% of them have the coconut seperated from the chocolate. Most of them were coconut dipped in choc. I had a lot of experience in choc bark but dont want to mess this up. Plus its expensive to make all the different barks I make for the holidays. Why do most recipes dip instead of mixing?
Maybe because it looks more like bark?
One way to get the effect of bark without dipping is to melt and spread your chocolate in sheet pans or forms, then - while it has cooled a little but is still soft - press your fixings (nuts, fruits, chopped candy canes) into the chocolate. chill, cut, wrap and give.
