Conversation Heart Bark Ingredients

The shopping list is short for this recipe, but that’s the beauty of chocolate bark!

  • Chocolate candy wafers – Rather than have all white chocolate, I like to add a swirl of regular chocolate too to add to the flavor.
  • Pink candy wafers – You can’t have a Valentine’s Day treat without some pink, right?
  • White candy wafers – The swirled effect makes this chocolate bark that much more fun and festive. I used pink and white, but throw in some red if you’d like too.
  • Conversation hearts – And of course you will need conversation hearts. These pastel hearts each have a fun message to share from “Call Me” to “Real Love” and so much more.

You can also try semi-sweet chocolate chips or dark chocolate, white chocolate chips and a pink candy wafer if you prefer. I do recommend using a high quality chip as they tend to melt more smooth.

How to Make Conversation Heart Bark

This is a fun recipe the kids can help with. Or you can make and surprise that special someone. It’s also a fun recipe to package up and deliver to neighbors and co-workers too.

Melting Chocolate

Place candy wafers or chocolate chips in a glass bowl and microwave each bowl separately for 30 seconds. Stir candy wafers and melt for 30 seconds more. 

Keep stirring as chocolate wafers candy melts should be soft enough that they are melting nicely. If additional time is needed go ahead and heat for 15 seconds. 

Stir the chocolate until smooth. Repeat with each candy wafer or chocolate chips.

Don’t get ahead of yourself and think you can do this one at a time. It’s important to get all 3 colors of chocolate melted so you can layer and swirl together for this conversation heart bark.

Layering Bark

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. This will make it easier to lift the cooled bark off of the pan.

Don’t make the mistake of placing directly on a cookie sheet. It will be a cold stuck mess that is very difficult to lift up.

Pour chocolate layer on bottom of sheet lined cookie sheet and carefully spread evenly to form a thin base. Immediately top with a drizzle of melted pink candy wafers and then white chocolate.

Using a toothpick or knife, carefully swirl chocolates together creating a beautiful swirl pattern.

I found a toothpick is ideal as it really pulls the colors together beautifully.

Then top with conversation heart candies. I personally place them individually making sure to spread the colors of hearts evenly across the chocolate bark. You could also just sprinkle them and let them be where they lay.

Cooling Chocolate Bark and Cutting

Place chocolate bark in the refrigerator to cool and set. Within about 10 minutes the bark is cold enough to cut. But can easily be left in refrigerator longer if needed.

Using a sharp knife press into bark. Conversation Heart Bark will snap and break into pieces.

Do you best to not cut through a conversation heart as it tends to crumble and not look as pretty.
