If you like chocolate bark, you will love these valentine bark recipes that are simple yet appealing to chocolate candy lovers of all ages.


If you've never made chocolate bark before, let me tell you that this is a valentine candy recipe that would be great to let the kids help out with.


It's incredibly easy, very versatile, and on top of all that, it tastes completely yum!


Making your own Valentine candy is the perfect way to present a homemade gift that will be appreciated by children and adults alike.

In fact, perhaps you can make up a batch with your children and then they can present it in small party favor bags to each member of their class at school or church.


Not to be manipulative, but wouldn't that put your child in everyone's good books?  :) (lol)


If you want to make up chocolate bark for Valentine's Day and store it for a time, you can use glass canning jars, cookie tins, or another air tight container that is free of residual smells.


Okay, here are the recipes so you can get started...

Valentine Bark Recipe #1

valentine bark recipe
  • 16 ounces of chocolate (white, milk, or semisweet chocolate)

  • 2 cups valentine candy (you can use message hearts, cream filled chocolates, gummy candy, crushed peppermints or candy canes, red hots, or any assortment of heart shaped valentine candy)

  1. Prepare a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan by lining it with waxed paper, and set aside.

  2. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over very low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Alternately, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave, by heating in 1 minute intervals, stirring each time until smooth. Do not over heat.

  3. Pour melted chocolate onto the prepared pan and spread it evenly. Sprinkle your chosen valentine candy evenly over the chocolate and press it in gently to secure it. Allow chocolate to set.

  4. When cool, break chocolate into small pieces, and store the bark in an airtight container.
