I love to add dried fruit and coconut shavings, but I also provide suggestions for other ways you can dress up this Chocolate Pretzel Bark.
Chocolate Pretzel Bark Ingredients
Chocolate Chips: I used semi-sweet, but you can use white, dark, or milk chocolate. (Or even a combination of your favorites!)
Coconut Oil: This will help smooth and stretch our chocolate as it melts. It also adds a beautiful shine.
Dried Fruit: Tastes just as good as fresh fruit dipped in chocolate! I used dried cranberries and my favorite dried mango from Trader Joe's.
Pretzels: Crunchy, salty, and amazing paired with chocolate!
Coconut Shavings: Another incredible flavor taken to the next level with chocolate. These guys also add even more texture.
How to make Chocolate Pretzel Bark
1. Heat a sauce pan over low heat. Add coconut oil and give it a swirl with a rubber spatula to coat bottom of pan.
2. Add chocolate chips of your choice. Stir continuously so the chocolate doesn’t burn.
3. After the chocolate is melted, pour and spread evenly onto a sheet pan that is lined with parchment paper.
4. Dice dried mangos, cranberries, and coconut shavings. Break pretzels. Sprinkle on top of chocolate.
5. Place entire sheet pan in the freezer. Let chocolate bark freeze for 20-30 minutes or until hardened.
6. Use a knife to break apart. Store in the freezer. (Or fridge.)
