Gift Idea: Gluten free, Vegan Choco-Fruit Barks

christmas vegan chocolate bark

Today I’m sharing a suuuper easy edible gift idea, that is very allergy-friendly too!

You will only need some good dairy-free dark chocolate and sugarless sundried fruit (or sugary candied fruit, if you prefer)!

And very simply:

  • melt the chocolate over a double-boiler
  • line a baking tray/ramekins with parchment paper
  • pour the melted chocolate on the tray and spread it evenly with a spatula until you get a 1/3 inch thick layer
  • lay the dried fruit pieces on top, slightly pressing them into the chocolate layer
  • you can also add coconut flakes, nuts (whole or chopped) and anything that might be appreciated by the person who will receive it
  • now cover the tray/ramekins with kitchen plastic wrap (making sure it doesn’t touch the chocolate and fruit inside) and refrigerate for at least 2 hours
  • once the chocolate has solidified again, gently remove it from the parchment paper and place it down again, slightly dusting the chocolate bark with cinnamon powder
  • cut the it bark into pieces of the shape you like: square, rectangular, irregular, big, small, bite-size, etc.
  • you can simply wrap these sweets in some transparent paper and a pretty ribbon, or you can put them inside a nice wood/metal box lined with parchment/colored paper 🙂
