White chocolate lemon bark
Lemon zest and fresh thyme add intense flavor to this classic holiday treat.
Chocoholics rejoice! You can have your chocolate and your breakfast, too! This cool white chocolate bark recipe includes crispy rice cereal, fresh lemon zest and aromatic flavorful thyme.
Think how impressed your friends will be when you pass a candy dish around with some homemade chocolate bark. Once you get the hang of melting and reworking chocolate, there’s no end to the creative flavors you can produce. Try milk and dark chocolate, chopped nuts, garden herbs, dried fruit or your favorite candy chopped into bits. (Just don’t add liquid – it’ll cause the chocolate to seize up.)
- 6 ounces white chocolate
- 1/2 cup Rice Krispies
- 2 tablespoons grated lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, stems discarded
Break chocolate up into small pieces. Microwave on medium heat for a couple minutes, and stir until smooth.
Add lemon zest, thyme and Rice Krispies and mix well. Mixture will get thick, almost like play dough.
Spread out onto parchment lined cookie sheet. Use another sheet of parchment paper to press down on the chocolate mixture and flatten it to 1/4" height. You want a thin bark, which will be easier to break into chunks.
Refrigerate for 15 minutes, and then use a smooth knife to cut into wedges.
