Valentine’s Day Conversation Heart Chocolate Bark

This festive Valentine’s Day chocolate bark recipe is made with classic conversation hearts and lots of pink sprinkles, making it perfect to gift your valentine, your kids or even your coworkers this Valentine’s Day.

After first making homemade chocolate bark and realizing how easy and fun it is to make, I knew making Valentine’s Day bark was absolutely necessary. With the addition of classic conversation hearts and sprinkles, it doesn’t get much cuter than this!

Admittedly, making chocolate bark quickly became a bit of a thing around here. It started with Halloween candy bark, then Christmas bark in a bunch of varieties, Easter candy bark and here we are today with conversation heart chocolate bark just in time for Valentine’s Day!

If you’d like to learn how to make chocolate bark, you can easily adapt this basic chocolate bark recipe to suit any holiday or occasion. It’s fun served on a tray or bundled up in little cello bags to give to friends or coworkers. 

Here’s the thing though – chocolate bark is so easy to make. Seriously! If you can boil water, you can make bark. The key is to melt the chocolate over a double boiler.

I don’t have an “official” double boiler so I use a stock pot with water and then a heat-safe glass mixing bowl sitting on top of the stock pot and it works great. (Check out my “Behind the Blog” Instagram Stories highlights to see what I mean!)

I made my bark with dark chocolate with a white chocolate swirl, but you can really use any chocolate you like. Other than that it’s just conversation hearts and pink heart sprinkles, which also aren’t strictly necessary if you can’t find any.

Chocolate Bark Ingredients

  • Milk chocolate morsels – Strictly speaking you can use any kind of chocolate you like, but I love milk chocolate for making chocolate bark. Dark chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate also work great.
  • White chocolate morsels – I mostly added the white chocolate here for the pretty swirls through the bark. You could also add butterscotch or another kind of chocolate.
  • Conversation hearts – Classic Valentine’s Day conversation hearts make this bark so fun!
  • Sprinkles – I like using pink heart-shaped sprinkles, but any sprinkles you have on hand or can find will work great.

How to Make Chocolate Bark

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Carefully melt each of the chocolates over separate double boilers, mixing often with a rubber spatula until fully melted and smooth.
  3. Alternately, you can microwave in a heat seat bowl, microwaving in 15 – 20 second intervals and stirring in between to ensure even heating.
  4. Once fully melted, carefully pour melted chocolate onto the center of your baking sheet, then use a rubber spatula to gently smooth out until approximately ¼” thick.
  5. Pour the white chocolate on top of the milk chocolate in a bit of a zig zag pattern. Take a bamboo skewer (or similar) and use the tip to swirl the two chocolates together.
  6. Then sprinkle your conversation hearts over top of the chocolate before it begins to harden. Follow up with the heart-shaped sprinkles.
  7. Transfer the baking sheet to the fridge and chill for at least one hour or, ideally, overnight. Remove from the fridge and use the back of a spoon or similar to smash the bark into pieces.

Personally I just love bark, because people find it to be such a novelty and it’s easy enough that if you don’t prefer to bake or you have kids you want to have help you with sprinkling the toppings, you’re good to go. Give it a try!
