Grünheim's Herbed Chocolate Bark

Grünheim's best-selling regional treat, now available to make at home!

Prep time: 20 minutes

Setting time: minutes to an hour (depending on if you temper your chocolate)

First seen in: Ep 20

10 ounces of high quality dark chocolate (chips or bars)

4 ounce high quality white chocolate bar

Toppings: we used fresh rosemary and toasted pistachios; get creative with your own herbs, nuts, dried fruit, candies, and sprinkles!

  1. Put parchment paper onto a sheet pan.

  2. Prepare your toppings before preparing your chocolate (chop up your herbs or nuts, etc.)

  3. Begin by tempering your chocolate. Put 3/4 of your dark chocolate (chopped or chips) in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Microwave another 30 seconds and stir. If it isn't melted by this point microwave in 15 second intervals. Make sure you spend at least a minute stirring in between heatings as sometimes the chocolate just needs a little encouragement. Once just melted, add in the remaining 1/4 of your dark chocolate and stir well until it is smooth and all is melted.

  4. Temper your white chocolate by using the methods in Step 2. Because this is a smaller quantity, I recommend microwaving in 20 second intervals and moving down to 10 second intervals.

  5. Pour the dark chocolate onto your prepared parchment paper and spread into a large rectangle, about 2 mm thick.

  6. Gently put strips of white chocolate up and down the short side of the dark chocolate.

  7. Using a toothpick or knife, move through the chocolate along the long edge of the rectangle, slowly zig-zagging through all of the chocolate until beautifully swirled.

  8. Evenly sprinkle your toppings onto the chocolate and leave at room temperature to set.

  9. If you've tempered your chocolate correctly it will set within minutes! If you haven't, not to worry, it will just take a little longer to set, and you can pop it into the fridge to speed up the process. Tempering chocolate can take time to perfect, and it will taste delicious regardless!

  10. Store in air-tight container and enjoy throughout your week!
