No-Bake Chocolate Christmas Bark

Who doesn't love chocolate and there's just something about chocolate bark that makes it irresistible.

I'm a fan of no-bake recipes, sweet treats that can be made in a pot on the top of the stove, then set to cool, instead of having to bake these up the oven. When you are in a hurry, these recipes can be life-savers.

This recipe for Christmas bark can be made around the holidays but, of course, you can enjoy it anytime you have a hankering for chocolate.

Chocolate bark is an easy-to-make sweet item when you are short on time but still need something special to serve company.
