Decadent Valentine's Day Chocolate Bark  from At The Picket Fence

What is it about CHOCOLATE that speaks to the soul?  It calls us with it’s siren song…to open that bright red heart and bite into those little squares of goodness.  We know our favorites and savor those first, but eventually they will all be consumed down to the last coconut filled truffle. about the call to the pantry, where in desperation we dig out the half used bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips and chase away our blues with handfuls of morsels and a few episodes of The Bachelor or Desperate Housewives…oh wait you don’t do that?

Then there’s the good stuff.  You know…the good stuff. The chocolate that is wrapped like a present and costs as much as an ounce of gold.  The kind you let melt in your mouth and hide from the kids.

Chocolate.  There’s a reason why it’s associated with Valentine’s Day.  It’s romantic and sexy. Delicious and decadent.  My Decadent Chocolate Bark is a perfect treat for this special day of love! Layers of semi-sweet chocolate, salty sunflower seeds and tart cranberries topped with smooth white chocolate.

A great treat to share with those you love!

      Hi Jeanette, it’s a specialty salt similar to course sea salt. I purchased mine at HomeGoods but TJMaxx would probably carry it as well. Also you might find it in a gourmet grocery like Whole Foods or Trader Joes. It essentially just “pink salt” so even sea salt could be used if necessary. :)


  6. Oh my! It looks so Yummy!

  7. Okay!! You girls need to STOP it, with all this Chocolate Goodness!!! It is SERIOUSLY so very tempting and makes me want to buy up all the chocolate at Target! :) This looks so very good!!

      Hi Sarah, Thanks! I purchased them at Hobby Lobby, but I bet you could find them at specialty grocery stores as well. ~Heather

  16. I’ve tried to find the candy coated sunflower seeds (in the Valentines colors, of course) with no luck so far – could you recommend a substitute? Hobby Lobby didn’t have them in my area, but am going to try Whole Foods. I found them at a “candy” speciality store but NOT in the Valentines colors :-( Thanks!


  1. [...] I scrounged around trying to find something that would work and remembered this jar of Pink Himalayan Salt that I picked up so I could copy my sister’s Chocolate Dipping Spoons. [...]
