Chocolate bark is such an easy recipe to make if you need to bring a dessert anywhere. It’s really simple to make, but looks like it took a while. So you get a lot of credit for something that was minimal effort.

This Mint Chocolate Bark recipe is all that.

I made it recently for a pot luck because St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner and this green and white chocolate bark is the right colors for the holiday.

Plus, it has mint chocolate in it. And I don’t know how mint got associated with St. Patrick’s Day, but it did. So this fits.

But, this works for any time too. There’s no sign that yells “St. Patrick’s Day.” Like, there aren’t shamrock sprinkles all over the top. So you can make this in the middle of the summer or mid-March. It works any time.

How To Make Mint Chocolate Bark:

Vanilla almond bark squares in a bowl.

Melt the vanilla almond bark according to the package.

The easiest way to do this is to heat it for one minute in the microwave. Take it out and stir it. Put it back for another 30 seconds, then stir. Repeat at 30 second intervals until the vanilla almond bark is completely melted.

Use an icing knife (or the back of a spoon) to spread the melted vanilla almond bark into an even layer.

Green candy melts in a bowl.

Melt the green candy melts according to the package.

Just like the vanilla almond bark, the easiest way to do this is to melt it for one minute in the microwave, then stir. Melt for an additional 30 seconds and stir, repeating until the candy melts are completely melted.

If you’ve never used candy melts before, check out our Tips For Using Candy Melts post. It’ll give you the confidence you need to use them in this St. Patrick’s Day recipe.

Put the tray in the fridge to harden, about 20 minutes.

When the mint chocolate bark is hard, cut it into pieces. The pieces don’t have to be uniform at all.

Store the mint chocolate bark in an airtight container in the fridge until you’re ready to eat it.

Mint Chocolate Bark: Frequently Asked Questions

Can you use chocolate chips for bark?

You can use white chocolate chips to make chocolate bark, but it’s so much easier to make it using vanilla almond bark.

Vanilla almond bark, which you can purchase at any grocery store, is a lot easier to work with than chocolate chips. You simply melt it in the microwave and it’s ready to go. If vanilla almond bark hardens before you’re done with it, you can always reheat it and it will melt like the first time.

With white chocolate chips, or chocolate chips in general, you might keep them in the microwave for too long and the chocolate will burn. And once it does, there’s no way to revive it. You just have to throw it away, which is a waste. So I always recommend vanilla almond bark.

If you have leftover vanilla almond bark, which you will because this recipe only uses half a pack, you can also use vanilla almond bark in the following recipes:

Can I add mint extract to melted chocolate?

If you wanted to, you could add mint extract to the melted vanilla almond bark — as long as you use an alcohol based extract. If you use something else, it might cause the chocolate to seize.

How long will mint chocolate bark keep?

If you store this Mint Chocolate Bark in an airtight container in the fridge, it will last for about two to three weeks (although I bet your family will finish it before that long).

You can store this in the freezer if you really wanted, but it’s not practical. Unless you freeze it in layers with parchment paper between the layers, it will eventually freeze together in one big clump and make a mess. So sure, you can freeze chocolate bark, but we don’t recommend it.
