This easy two-ingredient dessert uses different types of chocolate to create a holiday bark that resembles a snowy white birch tree. It's perfect for the cookie tin, or for setting out on a platter with other wintry, nature-inspired treats like these Moss Sandwich Cookies

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Melt milk chocolate in a heat-proof bowl set over a pot of simmering water, or in a microwave. Just before all is melted, remove from heat; stir with a spatula until completely melted. Repeat with white chocolate.

  • Cut a 12-by-9-inch sheet of parchment; place on a baking sheet. Transfer 2 tablespoons milk chocolate to a piping bag fitted with a small round tip (such as Ateco #3; you can also use a tiny paintbrush). Pipe or brush small dots and dashes and "knots" sparsely across surface of parchment. Refrigerate 5 minutes.

  • Pour white chocolate over pat- tern, spreading to edges of parchment. Refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes. Spread milk chocolate over white chocolate with a spatula. Refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes. Break into pieces; refrigerate until ready to serve.

Cook's Notes

To keep the bark at room temperature without blooming or becoming soft, you'll need to temper them. Follow the procedures for both the milk chocolate and the white chocolate (each chocolate requires a different temperature when tempering) linked here.
