How to Bring the Pecan Chocolate Bark Recipe to Life

Once you’ve gathered your ingredients, it won’t be long before you, your family and your friends are enjoying this chocolatey goodness.

To make the bark, start by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then, add the chocolate chips and coconut oil to a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 20-second increments, stirring each time, until the chocolate fully melts.

Pour most of the pecans into the melted chocolate and stir. Then, pour and evenly spread the chocolate and pecan mixture onto your baking sheet. Sprinkle dehydrated raspberries and the remaining bit of pecans on top. Once the toppings are to your liking, stick the baking sheet into your fridge or freezer for 20 to 30 minutes to let the chocolate harden.

After the chocolate is hard, it’s time to break it so you get the full “bark” effect. Break the chocolate into pieces using a knife or by putting it into a bag and lightly hitting it with a mallet or another heavy object like a frying pan. You can also lift the bark and drop it back onto the tray to break if it’s thin enough.

Your New Favorite Pecan Raspberry Chocolate Bark Recipe: Additional Tips

While making pecan bark is pretty straightforward, there are some variations to the recipe you could try. Use your favorite chocolate or branch out — try white, milk or dark chocolate, or melt and swirl different ones together for a funky-looking bark.

If you want to add extra flavors or make your bark have the best of both worlds, sweet and salty, you can switch the type of pecans you use.  Roasted & Salted pecans mixed with the sweetness of chocolate is a popular combination.

You could also substitute raspberries for any other fruit, like freeze-dried strawberries. No matter what fruit you use, the dehydrated or dry version is key — moisture and chocolate don’t mix.
