Y’all know that I love any hacks to make life easier and this is my new favorite trick! I couldn’t believe how quickly this came together and how easy it to make this adorable Candy Heart Chocolate Bark.

Ingredients for Valentine's Day Treat

Ingredients

A lot of this can be up to you! Melting chocolate works best and I used a combination of pink, red, and dark chocolate for Valetine’s Day, topped with festive sprinkles. (All of these supplies can be found at Walmart!)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  2. Arrange the melting chocolates in rows (approximately 2 inches wide) by color diagonally, starting at the corner.
  3. Place in oven for approximately 7 minutes, until the chocolate melts are soft (they do not need to be completely melted.)
  4. Use a metal spatula or knife to stir the chocolates in a zig zag motion, which will create a swirl pattern. (Mixing the chocolates will also help them melt completely.)
  5. Immediately add sprinkles or candy to the chocolate before it dries.
  6. Let the chocolate cool and harden completely before breaking it in smaller pieces.

Note: If you use a silicone mat, you may need a slightly longer baking time for the chocolates.

You can also change up the chocolate colors and candy per holiday, such as rainbow colors for St. Patrick’s Day, orange and white for Halloween or red and green for Christmas!

Perfect Presentation Platters

This Candy Heart Chocolate Bark looks cute on anything! For a Valentine’s Day theme, here are some fun options:

Valentine’s Day Plates: This heart-shaped pink platter is a great find, as well as this rectangular dish with hearts, or these pink scalloped dessert plates. (All from Target.) Williams-Sonoma also has this beautiful watercolor heart platter made from stoneware from, this round marble LOVE cheeseboard, this heart-shaped cheeseboard, or this set of 4 cute heart plates that you could reuse every year.

For a matching set, you could also get these watercolor mugstea towels, or placemats from Williams-Sonoma as well!

Everyday Platters: If you’d prefer to have platters that aren’t holiday themed, I’ve got you covered! For a fun option you could use all year, I used this set of two white porcelain platters. I also love this beaded wooden cake stand, this gold hammered tray, this wooden serving tray, or this round agate cheeseboard.
