This sweet treat is the combination of two great outdoor treats, trail mix and chocolate bark creating a great snack or finger food for around the campfire.
This recipe creates a trail mix but can be substituted for your favorite trail mix or even a commercial product. Be careful not to use too many sweet ingredients otherwise the result will be oversweet.
The chocolate used is dark chocolate which provides a contrast to the sweet fresh fruits. Milk chocolate can also be used but has a tendency to melt easier in the outdoor environment and create a bark that is too sweet.
Trail Mix Chocolate Bark Recipe
- 1/8 cups raisins
- 1/8 cup slithered almonds
- 1/8 cup apricot diced
- 1/8 cup dried pawpaw diced
- 1/8 cup dried apple diced
- 12 oz dark chocolate
- heat proof bowl
- baking tray
- baking paper
- Combine the almonds, raisins, apricots, pawpaw, and apple to create a trail mix.
- On a baking tray lay the sheet of baking paper.
- Fill the pot with 1 inch of water then place the heatproof bowl on top. Place the chocolate in the bowl then slowly bring the water to a simmer while the chocolate melts.
- When the chocolate has just melted stir well and tip so as to create a thin layer of chocolate over the greaseproof paper. As soon as possible and before the chocolate starts to set sprinkle with the homemade trail mix.
- If a cold day the chocolate bark can be left on the bench to set. If a warm or hot day then place the chocolate bark in a cooler to set. After about 20 minutes it will be set.
- Break or cut the trail mix chocolate bark into serving sizes.
