Valentine Bark

This fun holiday bark with its collection of heart shaped candies is almost as fun to give as it is to eat. Any assortment of Valentine's candy can be used in this recipe with great results. We especially liked message hearts, cream filled chocolate hearts, and small cinnamon hearts.
1 pound white chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, or milk chocolate
2 cups assorted Valentine's Day candy

Detail of Valentine Bark Line a large jelly roll pan with parchment or waxed paper and set aside. Melt the chocolate in a large heavy saucepan over very low heat or in a microwave, stirring frequently until the chocolate is smooth and melted. Spread the melted chocolate evenly on the prepared pan. Sprinkle the candy evenly over the chocolate and press the candy into the chocolate to make sure it will not fall out later. Set aside the chocolate to cool. Once the chocolate has set, break into small pieces. Store the bark in a tightly sealed container at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Wrap the candy in plastic wrap or brightly colored cellophane and tie into small bundles with bright ribbon for gift giving. Add a special tag or Valentine to each little bundle.

Makes about 1 1/2 pounds candy

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
