12ouncesdark chocolate barsabout 4 bars
½cupGORP trail mix(or trail mix of choice)
2tablespoonscoconut flakes,toasted if desired
1-2teaspoonscoarse Himalayan sea salt
Preheat oven to 350º F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread chocolate bars on the baking sheet and bake until chocolate is melted and spreadable, about 8-12 minutes.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and use a spatula to spread the chocolate evenly across the parchment paper. Sprinkle trail mix over half of the chocolate, and coconut and sea salt over the other half (or substitute with toppings of choice).
Carefully transfer the parchment paper with chocolate to a marble slab (if you have one) or other smooth surface (such as a cutting board or the countertop) to cool completely. (I cooled the chocolate bark on a marble slab for 2 hours.)
Once cooled, use a sharp knife to cut the chocolate into pieces. Make random cuts to create different shapes and sizes. Enjoy!
