- 1 ounce unsweetened baking chocolate bar
- 3 tablespoons keto granular sweetener
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

- 3 tablespoons sugar free peppermint candy, crushed (used for topping)
Variation #2, Almond Joy:
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- 3 tablespoons coconut flakes, unsweetened (used for topping and in cream layer if desired)
- 3 tablespoons roasted almonds, crushed (used for topping)

Tips for making the best keto chocolate bark:
- If you don’t own a double boiler, simply stack a metal or glass bowl on top of a saucepan. Be sure the bowl fits nicely and snugly. Put 1 to 2 inches of water in the bottom pan. Heat the pan on medium to medium-high heat. Make sure that the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water when it’s inserted into the pan. Now you’re ready to rock and roll!
- You can also just melt the chocolate layer together in a small saucepan over low heat. Just watch it very closely to make sure it doesn’t burn!
- When spreading your layers onto the parchment paper, don’t try to be a perfectionist. Once the toppings are on and the bark is cut, it will look beautiful. I promise!
- For the best eating experience, I highly recommend munching on your bark straight out of the freezer. When brought to room temperature, the bark will soften and lose the hard, classic texture of traditional chocolate bark.
Score! A thumbs up from our picky eater!
Hmmm… Suddenly our freezer is getting a whole lot of action!
Here’s what my Hip sidekick Emily had to say about this chocolate keto bark:
“Yum! This was so fun to make! I love chocolate bark, especially around the holidays. I’ve definitely been missing it since starting keto. The Almond Joy flavor is my favorite! I think next time I might try an almond espresso flavor. Like the recipe says, the bark does get soft at room temperature, so keep this tasty treat in the freezer!”
