The idea came from this US Postage Stamp.
I thought up this idea of gingerbread bark when I saw the “party bark” sold at Costco last month. Since gingerbread is fitting with the holiday season, why not put it in bark? To make this bark you will need gingerbread cookies and I, of course, recommend my Gingerbread Cookie recipe:
You will also need chocolate. In the video, I used a combination of semi-sweet chocolate and bittersweet chocolate. You can use milk chocolate or even white chocolate if you wish.
For an 8 inch by 8 inch pan, I used 10 ounces of chocolate. If you use a larger pan, use enough chocolate to coat the bottom of the pan about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch thick. If the chocolate layer is too thin, it will crumble. If it’s too thick, you’ll never be able to break it apart. And that’s no fun.
You can use “melting chocolate” also known as candy melts if you really, really want to but first watch my video on why I don’t use them.
