Chocolate bark

Maria’s chocolate bark

Chocolate bark is delicious, and so quick and easy to make. Afternoon Tea supporter Maria has shared her go-to recipe with us - we hope you love it!

Chocolate bark


  • 100g dark chocolate (broken into pieces) 
  • 100g milk chocolate (broken into pieces) 
  • 100g white chocolate (broken into pieces) 
  • 100g mixed dried fruit and nuts 
  • Zest of 1 orange  


  1. Place a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water 
  2. Melt the dark chocolate by placing it in the glass bowl and stirring - once fully melted, put this to one side. Then follow the same process for the milk and white chocolate, so that you end up with a bowl of each type of chocolate 
  3. Line a medium size baking tray with parchment paper. Pour each bowl of melted chocolate onto the tray, one at a time 
  4. Using a wooden skewer, swirl the different chocolates into each other creating a marbled effect, and spread it evenly across the tray 
  5. Chop up the fruit and nuts into slightly smaller pieces, then scatter them over the melted chocolate 
  6. Grate the zest of one orange evenly over the chocolate 
  7. Place the chocolate in the fridge for 1 hour (minimum). Once set, remove the chocolate from the fridge and cut it up into serving-size pieces 

Top tip:

You can serve this on a plate or, to make it extra special, you can put the pieces into individual bags and tie them with ribbon.
