Chocolate Coconut Bark With Sea Salt🍫

I so love these barks. They’re easy, fast, impressive, and can be made into many varieties. There is something unbelievably satisfying about watching chocolate melt. It just becomes sooooo smooth. It looks like a Dove chocolate commercial, and makes me feel like a Belgian chocolatier as I stir. Or the fat kid in Willy Wonka.  I happen to love coconut. It was fun to add it here. The sprinkling of coarse sea salt was a nice little counter balance to all the other sweetness. When people started adding salt to desserts years ago, I was baffled. But it really does add an element of complementing the flavors.     

Directions:

Melt five 4 oz bars of semi sweet chocolate in a double boiler, stirring pretty often. Let cool slightly.

Pour the melted chocolate onto a rimmed baking sheet that has first been sprayed with non stick spray, then covered in wax/parchment paper. The spray only goes under the wax paper, not on top.

Pour chocolate, spreading to even out. Top the chocolate with a generous amount of shredded, unsweetened coconut, then sprinkle evenly with a few pinches  of sea salt.

Freeze uncovered on a flat surface until completely frozen, can be overnight. When frozen, break the bark into uneven pieces and either serve immediately, or put the pieces in an airtight container to use as desired.
