Strawberries and Cream White Chocolate Bark

I have just cheered Andy Murray into the second week of Wimbledon while snacking on this delightful chocolaty snack. I took my inspiration from the famous Wimbledon treat of strawberries and cream.

A little time away

I must say it is good to be back and posting again these last few months for me have been both horrible and fantastic all at the same time. My Nan took a stroke and I have had to return back down South to England to help my Mum out while my Nan was in need of constant care. Michael and I took a short holiday to Rome as we hadn’t seen each other for moths and upon our return we were told my Nan had sadly passed away while we were away. ย So we headed back down South again to say our final goodbyes, she had lived independently in her own home for 93 years.

But there was a silver lining to all this ๐Ÿ˜€ My sister Christina and her husband Ian had their first baby a beautiful boy called Daniel ๐Ÿ˜€ so for me it was back down South to England again to meet my new Nephew.

So during all this time I used up all my reserve emergency posts and just haven’t had the time to get back in the kitchen, but hopefully things will settle down now…….. oh yeah Michael has been sent back to sea out in the Middle East and I am due back at sea soon!!! Oh well it never just rains but it pours!

Back to the Chocolate

Strawberries and Cream White Chocolate Bark

As I mentioned its Wimbledon so I am enjoying the tennis to its full and of course I am cheering on Andy (but I will always have a soft spot for Rafael Nadal). I am just pretending England haven’t crashed out of the world cup… IT NEVER HAPPENED!

So Simple To Make

There are only 2 ingredients for this delicious simple to make bark, the hardest part is waiting for it to set. Chocolate bark has long been a favourite in my house, Michael adores chocolate and to buy a slab like this costs a lot of money. Why pay premium prices when you can make your own? And there is no need to be snobby about your chocolate use what you like, why use a 90% cocoa chocolate if secretly you just like to chow down on a 40% cocoa?

Author:
Recipe type: Candy / Sweets
Cuisine: American
Serves: 7 ounce slab
Ingredients
  • 200 grams white chocolate, (7 ounces)
  • 7 grams freeze dried strawberries, (1/4 cup)
Instructions
  1. Get out a sheet of parchment paper and place it on your work top, if you need to cut it to size then do so.
  2. Break up your chocolate into pieces in a microwavable dish and pop it in the microwave on medium heat for 30 seconds at a time. Careful you don't over heat your chocolate and make it grainy.
  3. Once it's all melted pour it out onto your baking parchment and spread it out with a rubber spatula to a rectangle of about 6 inches wide (15cm) by 10 inches long (25cm). These measurements are not precise, if you want it a little thicker then make it a little bit smaller.
  4. Sprinkle the freeze dried strawberries all over your melted chocolate slab and gently press them into the chocolate with your finger tips.
  5. Leave to set for a few hours, if your kitchen is warm then pop it into the fridge to set. Kept in an airtight tin in the fridge this bark will be good for 2 weeks.
Notes
Most of the time is inactive time waiting for the chocolate to reset.

  1. I adore white chocolate…and your bark looks fantastic! I have never tasted dried strawberries, but I think I’ll pick up a bag soon and check them out.

    • Hi Liz, you should definitely try dried strawberries they are perfect for giving a natural flavour when you don’t want the added moister from the fresh fruit in a recipe. Also they go really well in chocolate bark!

  3. So sorry for your loss–you and your family are in my prayers! I lost a grandparent earlier this year too and it’s never easy to say goodbye to a loved one. On a lighter note, congratulations on your new nephew! How exciting!

    Your chocolate bark looks incredible, and I’m pretty sure I’d have a hard time not eating the whole batch in one sitting! It’s hard to go wrong with just two ingredients, especially when one of them is chocolate. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Oh my, what a jumbled life you’ve been living and I didn’t know. The Italian trip and the new baby are wonderful but how sad about your nan. Then going to sea is scary (if you ask me). Sending love from me to you.

    Now pass me some of the chocolate?
