Trail Mix Chocolate Bark

Close ou on melted chocolate on parchment paper with trail mix sprinkled over it.

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.
