This recipe is actually a brain child of mine from about 3 years ago when I was pitching ideas to my chocolatier Aunt for ways we could incorporate more sharks into her shop (I’m a “fin-atic”), while they never made the chocolate shop shelves, I was eager to make it at home for a shark-themed birthday party for my son a while later.
Chocolate barks are one of the easiest recipes to do, that are as fun to make as they are to break apart and eat. Here at Forkly, we’ve done a few of them throughout the seasons, they’re a favorite!
Simply taking candy melts, which if you don’t know what those are; simply are colored white chocolate discs that melt easily in the microwave in 30-second intervals. We used the candy melts in blue, then swirled some “blood in the water” with red melts, and added some sparkling colored sugar to give a glistening water effect. Finally, those shark gummies.
This recipe is really easy for kids to get involved in, and the name Shark Bark is highly addictive to say over and over.
Whether you’re planning a nautical party, have a shark-fanatic in the house like myself, or looking to highlight Shark Week this summer (it’s coming up!) this recipe is the easiest thing you’ll find to celebrate with.
