Zebra Almond Bark

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Enjoyable Eats: Zebra Almond Bark! Isn’t it funny how things get their name? Almond Bark doesn’t even contain nuts. Seriously. I guess, technically, there is a popular candy coating people believe is white chocolate, but isn’t. It’s made with vegetable oil and often artificial flavors. It was used originally to be melted into chopped almonds to make Christmas candy that people went crazy over. So, although I borrowed the name “almond bark”, I actually preferred to use white chocolate chips instead. The ingredient list mentioned cocoa butter and natural extracts, which sounded more appealing and taste better, in my opinion. Whatever you choose, we’ll still refer to it as “almond bark”.



2 cups premiere white chocolate morsels

1 cup mini chocolate chips


Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Set aside. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat white chocolate morsels on High for 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave at 30-second intervals until morsels are melted and consistency is smooth. Pour into prepared pan. Spread thin. In another microwave-safe bowl, melt mini chocolate chips the same way, stirring until no lumps remain. To form “zebra” stripes, drop tiny spoonfuls of dark chocolate into the white chocolate. Take a cake tester and create a swirl pattern by dragging the dark chocolate outward into stripes. The more random the design, the prettier it looks. Place baking sheet in the freezer for 20 minutes to set. Remove pan and break Zebra Almond Bark apart into pieces. Store candy at room temperature.

  1. These are so pretty! I make “bark” every year, sometimes dark and sometimes white. Because of the nut allergies in our family, I have to get only certain chocolates and I load up the bark with dried and freeze-dried fruits. I’ll have to mix up my chocolates this year!

    I was wondering when I saw the Zebra preview what could it be? 😉 And I’ve never seen a Zebra unicorn before! How creative. I look forward to eating this! I was actually thinking of making food gifts this year. Perfect!

  3. When I was a kid, my Mom always cooked with almond bark. For some reason I never knew it didn’t have anything to do with almonds. Now I cook with white chocolate chips, never knowing they were even substitutable. I prefer the white chocolate myself, though. And this bark looks yummy!

  4. I made some! I scorched first batch. Woops! I put both cups in a 2 cup measure cup. So DD told me only do 1 cup at a time. Much better!! I don’t know how to upload pix. So I will email them to you.
