Tips and Tricks to make the perfect bark

  • Avoid using chocolate chips: because the chocolate chips are made to retain their shape, they contain less cocoa butter and therefore don’t melt as easily as chocolate bars, so for recipes where you need to melt chocolate, it’s better to avoid them
  • Bowl not touching water: If using a heat proof bowl, make sure that the bowl is not touching the water. High heat will burn your chocolate, you should always work with very low temperatures
  • Moisture and Chocolate: Moisture is the enemy of chocolate, for this reason keep it dry at all times! so be careful, specially when heating it with a double broiler
  • Fine chopped chocolate: The finer you chop the chocolate, the quicker it melts! make sure that your chocolate bar is equally chopped and in very small pieces

Is it ok to substitute the sesame seeds? yes, substitute the sesame seeds for any other nut of your choice

Can I substitute the tahini? yes you can; you can substitute it for any nut butter you like. For example, if you substitute the sesame seeds for almonds, you can use almond butter, or try substituting the seeds for peanuts and use peanut butter instead

*If using a heat proof bowl, make sure that the bowl is not touching the water
*Moisture is the enemy of chocolate, keep it dry at all times! be specially careful when heating it with a double broiler
*Chop your chocolate in equally sized, small pieces so they melt evenly
