As you may know, if you've read my blog for a couple of years, I always enjoy making chocolate barks. I've made peppermint bark every Christmas for probably eight or nine years. Over the years, I've experimented with different flavors. The most popular ones are orange and coffee (and of course, the peppermint is always a holiday favorite).
The barks are a go-to treat for holiday parties. (As well as parties throughout the year. Because chocolate is good year-round!) I usually will just put a couple kinds on a plate or one in a bowl. This year, I decided to take all three kinds to a work Christmas party. I needed a way to present all of them in a pretty way.
I'm really happy with what I came up with and it was so easy and cute. I went with a "chalkboard" tray display. I had a wooden tray that I converted to a "chalkboard" with two pieces of black cardstock. It fit it perfectly. Then taking a white pen, I wrote each kind of bark with arrows pointing to the right bowl. I got inspiration for the lettering and arrows on pinterest.
It was a hit and I got several compliments on the tray as well as the bark.
If you'd like to try making one or three of the barks for your holiday, I've included the recipes below in one easy location.

I'm always looking for more flavors for my barks. Any ideas for me?
