Quick Christmas Bark

My hubby started a new job last week and he's really enjoying it and his co-workers. I just asked him at dinner if he'd like to bring a Christmas treat in for his co-workers tomorrow and he said yes. This took all of 10 minutes to put together with ingredients I had on hand. 2 hours total with chill time.

Chocolate Bark

2 bags of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Toppings of choice:
I used red & green candy cane crushed, Christmas M&Ms, mini marshmallows, and red & green crystals

Put the choc chips in a microwave safe glass bowl and microwave for 30 seconds at a time on 50% power. Stir in between. I think I did about 5 rounds of this. Spread the melted chocolate on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. I used my new silicone liner that I got from Aldi for $5! Sprinkle toppings all over chocolate and then refrigerate. When the chocolate has hardened (about 90 mins) remove from the fridge and break apart. This super simple recipe has many variations out there. It looks pretty with a layer of white chocolate underneath regular chocolate. I'm going to make this variation for Christmas and use the toppings above instead of nuts.
