For my first post of 2011 I decided to share this beautiful Cake Batter Bark that I found on How Sweet It Is because it's so fun.
I don't think I've enjoyed photographing any other thing I've made as much this colorful, whimsical Bark. I had to hold myself back and only share a few of the pictures instead of the 15 I took.
I made this for our New Year's Eve party and everyone seemed to really like it. It is perfect for Christmas Goodies or birthday parties too. The only downside is that it melts in your hand as you eat it, so keep it refrigerated until right before you are ready to serve and eat it immediately!
Cake Batter Bark
From Jessica at How Sweet It Is
6 ounces good dark chocolate (Jessica recommended Lindt 70% so that's what I used, too)
12 ounces good white chocolate (I used Ghirardelli)
1 teaspoon yellow cake mix
At least 3 tablespoons of sprinkles of your choice
Melt dark chocolate either in microwave or double boiler. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pour the chocolate on. You can smooth it with a spatula to the thickness you desire. Stick it in the freezer for 20 minutes.
Melt the white chocolate. Whisk in cake mix and stir well until no lumps remain. Let it set for a full 3 minutes until it slightly thickens.
Remove from baking sheet with chocolate from the freezer and immediately pour white chocolate on top. Sprinkle on sprinkles.
Freeze for 20 minutes.
Once set, break into chunks. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve and eat.
