This mix-and-match chocolate bark is the recipe you *need* this winter

Chocolate is delish in *any* season—s'mores in the summer, M&Ms by the pound in Halloween and hot chocolate in the winter. 

This holiday season, mix up your chocolate consumption with a new recipe: mix and match chocolate bark!

This *super* easy recipe makes for a perfect gift...or for a late night snack during the yearly viewing of Elf.

To make this, you will need:

- Wax paper

- 1 11-12 oz bag of white, dark, milk or semi sweet chocolate chips (your choice!)

- 1 tbs vegetable shortening or vegetable oil

- Toppings! See below for combination ideas, but can be anything you want. 


- Line a cookie sheet (10x15-inch) with wax paper

- Place and heat chocolate chips in bowl (microwave safe) and combine with shortening or oil. Heat the chips on 50% power in increments of 30 seconds, stirring each time in between, until they are melted.

- Evenly spread the melted chocolate on the cookie sheet, and sprinkle on toppings. Chill, then break into pieces. Store in container in refrigerator; will be good up to two weeks
