Summer’s Chocolate Caramel Swirl Bark


‘Tis the season for friends, family and parties! I love Christmas parties and I always want to show my appreciation to the host by giving a gift. I want to give something homemade but not a cookie, something sweet but not too sweet. Something you could enjoy with a big glass of adult grape juice … Enter the bark. Dark chocolate, swirled with white chocolate, laced with caramel dolce and sprinkled with sea salt bark. YUMMO!!

This bark hits all the right buttons, sweet, savory and easy to make. So bust out your mixing bowls, spatulas and lets get started!

*I got all of my ingredients at Trader Joe’s

While the white chocolate is melting spread the dark chocolate and semi sweet chocolate evenly onto the wax paper covered cookie sheet.

Remove the white chocolate from the microwave and stir until evenly melted. Plop spoonfuls of the white chocolate on top of the dark chocolate. Take a spatula and swirl through.

Scoop out half of the jar of Dulce de Leche and microwave just to soften for about 30 seconds. Plop the caramel by the spoonfuls onto the white, dark chocolate base and swirl through.

Carmel Sauce

Sprinkle with sea salt and place in the fridge until completely cooled (about 2 hours).

Break the bark up and enjoy!

me and bark


I am an actress, writer, comedian (I use that term very loosely) who is used to spending my nights after a show at the local pub or dive bar. My love for anything nacho and pizza related was apparent to everyone, including my waistline. As an actress your image is important, it is after all part of the job. realizing that my love affair with all the foods needed to come to an end I decided to try and cook my favorites but in a healthier more waistline friendly way. That is when I discovered my new passion, cooking. I have been creating concoctions in my kitchen for over a year now and I have lost 45lbs. I am a happier, healthier version of myself. I still go out after my shows but now with all of my new food knowledge I know how to order. I still catch a glimpse here and there of my forbidden nacho, pizza love, I smile and think fondly of the time we spent together. I can’t wait to share with you my healthy takes on the not so healthy!
