Ya’ll!!! 2016 is almost over! And it couldn’t come soon enough. Go home 2016, you’ve been drunk, hung over, and now you’re drunk again. Anyway, I promised myself I wouldn’t work over the holiday break – I’ve had a lot of plates spinning this year, and not all of them the same color/size/type if you know what I mean. I think one of them was a bowl or something – but I made this New Years Eve Dessert Chocolate Bark for a friend’s pre-New Years Eve photoshoot and it was too cute and festive not to share!

Not to mention that I found the mini-marshmallows that usually come in hot chocolate, you know the ones, yeah, those get sold separately. They’re called Mallow Bits and they are the new staple at all of my parties. Hot chocolate bar? Mallow Bits. Chocolate pretzel station? Mallow bits. Anything with s’mores? Mallow Bits. Cupcake bar? Yep. Mallow Bits. I’m having them on everything and you can’t stop me. Day = made.

What you’ll need:
Wilton black chocolate melts
Mallow-bits
Gold and white sprinkles
Glass microwave safe bowl
Spatula
Parchment Paper
Baking sheet
Room in the refrigerator

1. Start by clearing room in your refrigerator. Trust me, when you get into this and there’s melted chocolate in random places in your kitchen because you decided to make this with the kiddos, you’re will thank yourself. Clear out a space to put the baking sheet in for later.

2. In your completely dry microwave safe bowl, melt down the black candy melts. Start by zapping it for 1 minute and stir. If the chocolate is not all the way melted, keep microwaving in 10-15 second bursts while stirring in between. You want a smooth consistency.

3. Spread the melted chocolate out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use a spatula to get it nice and smooth. You want a thinner layer so it’ll break up easier.

4. Sprinkle the mini-marshmallows over the chocolate bark. Finish with a health sprinkle of white and gold sparkle sprinkles.

    Oh, man I wish I had seen this before New Year’s Eve. Love the gold pearls against the dark chocolate, and I totally cracked up at “room in the refrigerator”. I would love it if you would share this at my link party today, where we love to share posts that spread a little happiness!
