Valentine's Day Chocolate Bark Recipe

Kristan Roland | Confessions of a Cookbook Queen

Valentine's Day Chocolate Bark can be made at home and wrapped in individual bags for a perfect Valentine treat. What a great way to treat the one you love!

There is no good way to do this, so I’m just going to come out and say it.

I do not enjoy classroom holiday parties.

I realize that there are mothers who thrive in this type of environment. I know this because I see these moms, patiently handing out cupcakes, setting them on paper napkins laid across messy children’s desks.

They plan precious games and put together goodie bags and snap adorable photos for Facebook.

What said photos DON’T show you is that class parties are basically what an insane asylum for animals would look like. If a pack of wild monkeys were committed, there’s your basic 5th grade Valentine’s Day party.

Flying high on Capri Sun and mini Sweetarts, these kids lose their dang minds. It’s honestly like they have never seen a cookie before.

Even the teacher’s special whistle or hand signal is hardly a match for these blood thirsty baboons on a sugar high.

Valentine cards are slung around, opened and quickly discarded. The mess makes my eyes twitch and I find myself retreating to the outer perimeter of the room, slowly backing away until I’m out the door and fleeing to my car.

My son hardly notices I am there. The last class party I attended, I came in, gave him a hug, and quietly left.

Later on I learned that he never even realized I hadn’t been there for the entire thing. It was a revelation.

Like I discovered the ultimate life hack for moms or something.

Of course, I’m not suggesting you bail on your child’s class party. I’m just putting this information out there.

Do with it what you will.

If you’re like me and just prefer to stay in the background, sending cute treats and minding your own business, this bark is the perfect choice. I love cinnamon bears, so this was a no brainer.

It’s cute, yummy, and can be put together in minutes.
