Cake Batter Bark


Let's end 2010 with a bang, shall we?! THIS RECIPE IS UNREAL.

A have a little system to blogging, and basically at any given point I have 5-10 recipes photographed, edited, and ready to be blogged. When you see something on here I probably ate it 2-3 weeks ago. The truth behind this recipe? The chocolate is still on my fingers. Yes- literally. ::Runs off to wash hands::

I just made this for New Year's Eve and I am so excited to share this recipe with you that I CAN'T WAIT 2-3 weeks. I must share it now. This is, hands down, my new favorite "dessert" recipe. I will make this for everyone I know. I will make this for breakfast. I will make this for lunch. I will gain 30 pounds. And I will lick my fingers happily with every bite.

Make this- please, do. And don't worry about using a bit of cake mix and having a box left- you can still make the cake- it won't miss 1.5 teaspoons of the mix. Or make more bark. 'Cause that's my plan.

Source: Slightly adapted from How Sweet It Is

Ingredients:
7 ounces good dark chocolate (I used Trader Joe's brand)
12 ounces good white chocolate (I used Ghirardelli)
1.5 heaping tsp.  yellow bake mix
Colored sprinkles

Directions:
1- Melt the dark chocolate in the microwave, over a double burner, or over low flame. Spread thinly over parchment paper of a silpat.
2- Cool in the freezer for 20 minutes.
3- Melt the white chocolate. Add the cake mix, stir well. Spread over the dark. (Do a little bit at a time because it will melt the chocolate and it won't look as pretty.)
4- Top with rainbow sprinkles. Freeze for 20 more minutes.
5- Break into pieces and keep in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat it.

  15. I'm gonna make this this week for a party- one question. When you say "Spread thinly over parchment paper of a silpat" do you mean have a piece of parchment paper on top of the silpat? Or did you mean use parchment paper or a silpat?

  16. Haha- yup- I meant OR. Sorry :)

  17. Hi! I found this after looking at the cake batter cookies and would like to make it but have a question (probably a dumb one :) do you put in the dry cake mix or do you make the cake mix and add it wet?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hillary- just add the dry mix! It's delish- enjoy.

  21. I have no idea what I did wrong but I didn't think there was anything particularly interesting or UNREAL about this recipe. It tasted like ordinary bark to me and I couldn't taste the cake batter at all. I even added more then the 1.5 tsp the recipe calls for.
