Grinch Bark

Do you love The Grinch movies? Well, the Grinch stole Christmas but he missed this delectable Grinch chocolate candy bark! I love this famous Dr. Seuss character and how his small heart grew three times it’s size and realized the true meaning of Christmas. Does it get any sweeter than that?

Cozy up with some hot chocolate, watch your favorite version of The Grinch movie and snack on a plate of this sweet Grinch chocolate bark. Feeling extra festive? Bake Grinch cookies or make Grinch Cupcakes for a full Grinch themed dessert night.

This festive treat is also perfect to take to a Christmas party. It’s easily portable and will stand out on the Christmas dessert table. Make more than one batch because this fun treat will disappear fast!

Looking for a homemade food gift? Grinch bark makes a great gift! Simply wrap in plastic wrap then wrap in a pretty green or red cellophane wrap. Tie up with a bow and add a gift tag for an adorable hostess gift.

Ingredients

Chocolate bark recipes are so easy, anyone can make this perfect treat with just 4 simple ingredients.

You might notice this recipe does not use green candy melts. This is because I wanted to create a true chocolate bark instead of a melted candy bark. The chocolate is deliciously rich and makes amazing bark candy!

How to Make The Grinch Bark

Here are the quick and easy, step by step directions:

Step 1: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (you can also use wax paper).

Step 2: Melt the white chocolate chips over a double boiler. Add 1-2 inches of water in the bottom pot and place the other pot on top and add white chocolate chips. Use medium heat. As the steam melts the chocolate, stir it with a spatula until the chocolate is completely melted.

Note: You can use a microwave-safe bowl to melt your white chocolate chips. If you do this, heat in 30-second increments, stirring in between each heating session. The double broiler method is just as easy and is a much better way to melt the chocolate. The microwave method has a tendency to over heat the chocolate. If you do not have a double broiler, here is an excellent article on how to easily make a double broiler with the kitchen tools you do have.

Step 3: Remove the chocolate from the heat.

Step 4: Add 4 drops of green food coloring and 8 drops of yellow food coloring to get the vibrant green Grinch color. Stir well.
