Candy Making: Gingersnap Bark

There isn’t much easier than making bark for the holidays! It is candy making lite really, so easy older children can join in on the fun. Most of all you can eat it within an hour or so!

Gingersnap Bark


  • 1 1/4 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup white chips
  • 1/2 cup crumbled gingersnap cookies (crisp type)


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium glass mixing bowl melt 1 cup of the chocolate chips in your microwave, 45 seconds on high, checking on it and adding more time in 10 second intervals as needed (about 1:15 for my microwave). Stir until the chips are fully melted, add in the remaining 1/4 cup and stir till melted. If needed microwave for an extra 5 to 10 seconds to melt.

Spread out on the parchment paper, into a hand formed rectangle that is mostly even.

Add the white chips to a small glass bowl and microwave for 30 to 45 seconds on 70% power, stirring till fully melted. Scrape into a new freezer bag, snip off the corner and pipe over the dark chocolate. Quickly sprinkle the crumbled gingersnaps on top, pressing in gently as needed.

Let cool for at least an hour and snap into pieces.
