Perfect for holiday parties and potlucks, this chocolate bark is a favorite of mine. It’s another gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan dessert that doesn’t taste it. And for those with no food restrictions whatsoever? Who can say no to candy, let alone chocolate? See for yourself, try some.

I discovered chocolate bark at a Teaching Peace event. Teaching Peace is an incredible organization that focuses on restorative justice. David Title brought his chocolate bark to the event and I begged him for the recipe. Good man that he is, he emailed it to me later that same night!
I made a few changes, removing the dairy, sugar and brandy –you get the idea. Still, I owe David many thanks for this crunchy little dessert that flies off the plate at my house.
