How To Make Bonfire Night Bark

You know those crafts that seem perfect to do with children.  Then once you’ve laid everything out all neatly, you think – hmm maybe this would be more fun successful without them.

This is one of those crafts 🙂  Look how neat and tidy this looks – sprinkles, glitter, chocolate, all in a row.

Now look what happens when you add a small child.

Wahhhh!  That edible glitter is expensive stuff.

When she dumped a whole jar of sprinkles and three, yes three pots of edible glitter, I honestly thought Dorothy had ruined the Bonfire Bark.  I’d planned a subtly sparkling, marbled bark with little orange flavoured twigs.  What we ended up with was a mass of chocolate and sprinkles with more glitter than a burlesque dancer’s make-up bag.  And it looks awesome!!

You Will Need

Milk chocolate (not cooking chocolate)

White Chocolate

Sprinkles

Popping candy

Edible glitter

Matchmakers or similar stick shaped chocolate

Non-stick baking sheet.

Method

  • It’s up to you how large a slab of bonfire bark you make, but you’ll need to have around three times as much milk chocolate as white.
  • Melt your chocolate in batches and drizzle into a loose rectangle, changing direction often.
  • In between each batch, add a few chocolate sticks, some popping candy, sprinkles and glitter.
  • Finish with a tonne final flurry of glitter.
  • Allow to cool and set for several hours before breaking into generous pieces.

Share with friends and family, if you can bring yourself to part with it!
