Dark Chocolate Holiday Bark with Cranberries & Coconut Flakes


So I've got to know - are any of you out there watching sappy Hallmark Christmas movies on repeat like I am? Please say yes. I can't be alone in this! These movies have got to be the biggest holiday guilty pleasure on the planet. 

I love these movies, I do. But they are pretty cheesy/embarrassing/predictable... and TOTALLY ADDICTING. Like clockwork, every night around dinner time, you can find me having a solo movie party with the Hallmark channel. 


Anyway - if you're out there and you're watching these movies too, let me know! I need to know there are others!

Alright, let's get to this Dark Chocolate Holiday Bark!

I've never met a chocolate bark I didn't like. For one, it's basically like getting to eat a candy bar all by yourself without judgement. But also it's almost impossible to go wrong with chocolate, so it's always delicious. 


This particular bark is oober simple. It requires just THREE ingredients. Yep, three! Dark chocolate, cranberries, and coconut. Yeah, we keep things simple around here.

We start with melted dark chocolate, the darker the better (and healthier), spreading it into a thin layer and then sprinkling it with dried cranberries and coconut. Pop it in the fridge for a bit to harden and TA-DA! Break the chocolate into imperfectly perfect shards and serve.


These are easy make-ahead desserts for your holiday parties, a nice hostess gift/potluck addition, or a gift for someone you know who loves chocolate! Just make sure to keep the bark cold until you get it to them!

Give them a shot I don't think you will be disappointed!

P.S - my current favorite Hallmark Christmas movie is "On The Twelfth Day of Christmas"!

print recipe
Dark Chocolate Holiday Bark with Cranberries & Coconut Flakes
  • 10 ounces dark chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 handful dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon (or more if desired) coconut flakes
1. Melt the chocolate using your desired method. I melted mine in a glass bowl in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring the chocolate between each 30 seconds. It should take 1-2 minutes. 2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the melted chocolate onto the paper using a spatula to smooth it. 3. Sprinkle the cranberries and coconut over the chocolate. Store in the refrigerator until the chocolate has set. Once hardened, break the chocolate into chunks of desired size. Keep stored in the fridge until ready to serve.
