Author Notes: We developed this fun bark to go with the Environmental Science section our school theme at Taste of the Nation, New Haven, 2012. We almost feel guilty making it, because it's just so easy. We've put our favorite flavor combinations up here (see also Lavandula Salis and Potatochipus Dulcis), but you can use whatever kind of chocolate or toppings you want!

These measurements are for half a sheet-pan worth, but this recipe is very easy to double, triple and quadruple. Which you'll certainly want to do.
