Chocolate Bark for when You’re in a Crunch


If you’re short on time, but need some quick energy or a chocolate fix, make this crunchy dairy-free chocolate bark. It’s simple, but addictive, and quite versatile. You can use whatever trail mix you have on hand, but the bark shown uses Enjoy Life to keep it nut-free, dairy-free, and top allergen-free. If you don’t have any trail mix around, go ahead and add 1 1/2 cups of your favorite dried fruit, seeds, and / or chopped nuts (if nuts are okay for you). Broken pretzels are also a tasty addition!
