With just a few simple steps, you can transform plain chocolate into a divine treat with this chocolate bark recipe. We stir dried papaya, pepitas and chile powder into this chocolate bark, which is perfect for a gift.

3 dozen 1 1/2-inch pieces | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. (Take care to avoid wrinkles.)
  2. Place chocolate in a medium microwave-safe bowl; microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted. (Alternatively, place in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.)
  3. Combine pepitas and papaya in a small bowl. Stir half of the mixture along with 1/2 teaspoon chile powder into the melted chocolate. Scrape the chocolate onto the foil and spread it into a 9-inch square. Sprinkle with the remaining pepitas, papaya and chile powder, pressing any large bits in. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.
  4. Transfer the bark and foil to a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces.
