Candied Orange & Ginger Dark Chocolate Bark

  1. Melt chocolate in double boiler. I use a sauce pan filled with water and a large glass mixing bowl over the top. Make sure the water is NOT touching the bottom of the glass bowl. Bring water to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer.  Add chocolate pieces and melt until smooth. 10 minutes
  2. Remove chocolate from heat and let cool 2-3 mins. On a parchment lined baking sheet, add the chocolate and spread out to about 1/4 inch thickness.
  3. Sprinkle candied orange and ginger pieces as well as flaky sea salt on top.
  4. Add to fridge and cool for about an hour.
  5. Break into pieces
