Today i will be showing you haw to make chocolate bark. My sister uses this recipe frequently for a variety of different occasions such as holidays or just an easy and delicious snack. This recipe only takes about 20 minutes to make, but needs to be cooled off in a refrigerator for at least two hours before it should be served (i think it is best after being refrigerated over night). Well lets get started with the ingredients in the next step!

Step 1: Ingredients And Kitchenware

Ingredients:
-1/2 pound (two sticks) butter
-1/4 cup brown sugar
-1/4 cup granulated white sugar 
-1/2 box (about) graham crackers
-2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
-various optional toppings (could include crushed up candy canes, mini marshmallows, chopped nuts etc.)

Notes: if the toppings are hard, they should be crushed up so that they will not be to tough on the teeth and not cause an instant cavity, ok maybe not that bad but should still be advised!

Kitchenware: 
-stove
-10" x 15" cookie sheet
-aluminum foil
- 1/4 measuring cup
-2 spatulas, unless you want to wipe off and reuse one
-large spoon for stirring
-meat tenderizer for crushing toppings
-medium sauce pan

Step 2: Preheat And Layer Graham Crackers

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Take your cookie sheet and line it with aluminum foil. Make sure all the sides have a little bit of excess so that none of the butter mixture will leak out later. Then take your graham crackers and arrange them on the bottom of the pan, breaking up the last few in order to fit.

Step 3: Make Butter Mixture

Melt the butter in your medium sauce pan over medium heat. Once the butter has all melted add your 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup white sugar. Stir the mixture together and bring it to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat and let the mixture bubble for 4 minutes, then remove from heat. Proceed to next step
Well, I made them... and I ---ed up in the process, putting in a whole pound of butter... Now the result has the effect of... how to describe... It stays with you for several hours, having only eaten a small chunk. It's probably a great way to lose weight, because after a bite hunger won't be an issue.

Well, that's my personal problem, one I at the moment intend to fix by melting the whole bark down, crackers included, and add random stuff till it's as delicious as it should be. As for the actual recipe, I love the idea and the first seconds of taking a bite of my version tell me that I need to get it right next time, so - thanks for sharing!
