Mint Chocolate Chip Bark

 Mint Chocolate Chip Bark by JavaCupcake.com

I made a cake recently and garnished it with homemade mint chocolate chip bark.  It was so super simple and so super easy yet so super yummy that I thought it deserved it’s on post.

There are really only three things you need to make this bark – chocolate, mint extract and green food coloring gel.   It takes about 10 minutes plus a little more for the chocolate to set up and BAM – you’ve got chocolate bark.

Not only could you use this to top a cake or cupcakes – but this would make a great teacher gift, topping for ice cream or in your coffee.  Really the possibilities are endless!

Enjoy!
