Recipe for chocolate bark


Last night I was finally going to post a recipe that I have been making for years but I never photographed it so I never did a post for it.  So after putting it all together (it would help if you knew what I was talking about…chicken & biscuits) and finishing up the biscuits…just a brush of butter and putting them under the broiler for …oh I don’t know 5 minutes…they became black little pucks.  Now of course I was only going to have them in there for about 30 seconds~hence why I stayed in front of the closed oven holding onto the rail…just then my wonderful mother came up to me to discuss her dental engineering work she was planning  and how much it was going to cost…tic~toc went the clock…and wa~la hockey anyone?  Pouting for a good portion of an hour I finally realized a good daughter forgives…so I unlocked her from the closet, turned on the light (and the heat) and we had dinner…but not her, she had an empty plate (she is a theatre person so believe me she loves the drama-so no pity).  So I made this chocolate bark…now I know what you are thinking…Really? chocolate bark “oh, you really are quite the chef” but hear me out…I think this is great and so did my mother (I kind of think she was going to like it no matter what..)  It’s tastes great but OMG the texture…”silky” one disgraced elderly woman put it…again theater.  Enjoy!!
