Do your kids get bored of the same old snacks sometimes? Mine do – even though we mix it up plenty, it’s nice to switch it up sometimes. The other day we were planning on yogurt, but I thought it’d be fun to make it a litte unique. It’s been super hot here in Texas, so a frozen snack was ideal. They were so excited, and loved how this Berry Chocolate Yogurt Bark turned out! Plus, I was happy with how simple it was to make.
You can really mix this up however you’d like – use white chocolate instead of milk chocolate, pick your type of berries, or however you want to customize it to better fit your family’s tastes. This is perfect for a hot summer afternoon, or as a quick afternoon snack.
- Chocolate Chips
- Strawberry or Vanilla Yogurt (or mix plain yogurt with a little honey to sweeten a bit)
- Berries of choice
- Parchment paper
- Baking Sheet
Note: I didn’t include measurements, because it’s really up to you how much to do for yours or how much you need. I used a 9×13 baking sheet for mine and this filled it up almost to the edges (but not quite). I used 3 cups of chocolate chips (I’d use less next time so the chocolate layer wouldn’t be as thick), about 4-5 cups of yogurt, and 1-2 cups mixed berries.
- Lay parchment paper on a baking sheet, set aside.
- Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl on half power, stirring often, until smooth (took mine about 4 1/2 minutes, stirring every 30-45 seconds) Spread onto the parchment paper and freeze about an hour, or until hardened.
- Spread your yogurt over the chocolate, smoothing it out evenly. Sprinkle your berries over top, pressing them gently into the yogurt. Freeze about 3-4 hours, or until hardened.
- Allow to thaw about 15-30 minutes, then break into chunks of ‘yogurt bark’. Enjoy immediately!
See, it’s really easy to make – the hardest part is allowing enough time for it to freeze all the way, so does require planning ahead a bit. If you have any extra yogurt bark pieces, store them in an airtight container of baggie in your freezer.
