Dark Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt Bark

Darlene Sweet


My niece and I were recently shopping in downtown Nashville, and we stopped into a quaint candy shop. The chocolatier was creating a chocolate masterpiece including milk chocolate, caramel and sea salt. I watched her, and I even bought a piece to replicate. Although the milk chocolate was delicious, I thought dark chocolate would be scrumptious. I was correct! This quick and easy bark makes a great hostess gift!
