Vegan Rosemary Chocolate Bark

Serves 8 to 10

  • 8 oz (227 g) plain vegan chocolate, finely chopped, divided
  • 2 tbsp (2 g) crushed-up freeze-dried strawberries
  • 1 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • Sea salt flakes, a few pinches

Instructions

  1. Line a quarter sheet pan with parchment paper and set a folded kitchen towel on the counter. Make room in the refrigerator for the sheet pan to sit flat.
  2. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Set a heatproof bowl over the boiling water and add two-thirds of the chocolate. Do not stir as the chocolate begins to melt.
  3. When about three-quarters of the chocolate has melted, lift the bowl off the pot, turn off the heat and place the bowl on the kitchen towel. Add the remaining chocolate and gently stir until all of the chocolate is melted.
  4. Pour the chocolate onto the sheet pan. Use an offset spatula to spread it out evenly, almost to the edges.
  5. Working quickly, sprinkle the freeze-dried strawberries, rosemary, and sea salt over the surface of the chocolate.
  6. Place the bark in the refrigerator to set, at least 1 hour. When ready to serve, break the bark into uneven shards.
