TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS
When heating chocolate, stir well for at least 30 seconds to spread heat evenly. The hotter part will melt some of the chocolate as you stir.
Very Important: Heat until just melted and chocolate is smooth and shiny. Chocolate scorches easily.
Kids snacks like Welchs Fruit that come in small packs are great to add to the chocolate bark
Add pretzel pieces, candy corn and Halloween colored M and M's to make this variation.
