I was really torn as to what to make for our Star Wars bonus recipe. Should I make another molecular gastronomy recipe? A skillet cookie Death Star? Admiral Ackbar’s “It’s a Trap” Wraps? In the end, I decided on this fun, easy Galaxy Bark from Life with the Crust Cut Off. Gotta love those funky colors…and the extra texture element added by the sprinkles! Plus, it’s chocolate, which of course directly translates to SUPER DELICIOUS. Enjoy!
- 1 bag dark chocolate candy melts (my bags were 12 oz)
- 1/2 bag white chocolate candy melts
- purple and teal gel food coloring
- 2 tsp star sprinkles
Makes approximately 10 large pieces of candy bark
- Melt the dark chocolate candy melts according to package instructions. Divide the white chocolate into two microwave safe containers (1/4 bag per container) and similarly melt the white chocolate.
- Stir the colors into your white chocolate. You’ll want approximately 4 drops of teal in one container and 3 drops of purple in the other.
- Pour the dark chocolate onto a wax paper lined baking sheet, spreading it out into a 10″ circle with a fork. Add 9 dollops of the purple and teal chocolate across the surface of the circle, alternating the colors. Swirl each dollop one or two times with a butter knife, wiping the knife clean when you go to swirl a different color. NOTE: Limiting the number of swirls per dollop and wiping after changing colors helps ensure bright colors and distinct lines.
- Add some some star sprinkles on top.
- Allow the bark to cool, uncovered, at room temperature. This can take up to an hour. If it’s a hot day, allow the bark to cool at room temp until the top is just set, then gently lay a layer of wax paper on top and allow it to finish cooling in the fridge for about 15 minutes.
- Break your bark into big chunks
- Serve to interstellar travelers on their way to fight the Emperor.
