Valentine *Conversation Heart* Chocolate Bark

Time to get your sprinkles on...

I'm gonna be honest; I love conversation hearts, but I don't like to eat them.  I like to LOOK at them.


So, I figured....combine them with chocolate? Yeah, now we're talking.

I love the way conversation hearts are updated from time to time.  This year along with "Be Mine" and "Kiss Me," I saw "LOL" and "You Rock." :)

This is a quick, easy, fun Valentine treat to take to school parties, to the neighbors....or to eat wearing your jammies while watching Young & the Restless. {Not that I did that.}

Valentine Chocolate Bark

2 bags white chocolate chips (I like Ghiradelli)
2 bags bittersweet (or semisweet) chocolate chips (I still like Ghiradelli)
2 cups Rice Krispies
conversation hearts
sprinkles

Place 3/4ths of the white chocolate chips in a glass or metal bowl.  Place over a pan of simmering water and stir until melted.  Remove from heat and stir in the remaining white chocolate chips until melted. (If the chocolate is too thick, stir in some Crisco...about 1 TBSP).

Stir in the Rice Krispies.

Spread onto a cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper. (An offset spatula works great.)

Melt the bittersweet chocolate using the same method. (You shouldn't need the Crisco here.)

Using an offset spatula, gently spread over the white chocolate.

{I don't use the word "sexy" very often on the blog....or ever....but really, melted dark chocolate?  Sexy.}
 

OK.....sprinkle on the conversation hearts and sprinkles.  Let set up until hardened.


Break into pieces.

 
{I served them in a vintage muffin tin. :)} 


PS....this post is dedicated to my friends, Teresa and Kristan.  I think of them every time I reach for the sprinkles. :)
