Easy Holiday Bark
  1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil
  2. Place chocolate chips in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave on 50% or defrost setting in 1 minute increments about 3 times. Stir between increments. Do this until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth. If chocolate hasn’t melted yet microwave in 30 second increments until it does.
  3. Stir in shortening and stir until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Spread melted chocolate onto foil to form a layer about 1/2″ thick.
  5. Top with desired toppings. I used crushed candy cane for my Peppermint Bark and Mini Pretzels and Christmas Sprinkles for my Pretzel Bark.
  6. Place in refrigerator for about 60 – 90 minutes or until the chocolate has solidified.
  7. Break off pieces and enjoy!
