Valentine’s Bark

From Sparkles to Sprinkles

Christmas is long gone but who says we need to put away the bark?  I tried Christmas bark for the first time this year and I must admit it was love at first bite.  I have made it my own personal mission to create this recipe for Valentine’s.  Of course the taste and recipe are the same, I have just switched up the color chocolate and decorations in honor of Valentine’s Day.

I just love all the sprinkles and sparkles on the candy. Be careful who you gift with this Valentine’s bark because it will also be love at first bite.

Saltines all lined and ready to have the melted butter and sugar poured on top.

Melting Chocolate:

In a microwave-safe container microwave candy melts at 50% power or the defrost setting on your microwave. Melt for one minute to start. Remove and stir. Place back in the microwave for additional 30 seconds at 50% power. Remove and stir. Continue to do this in 30 second intervals until smooth and creamy. Remember less is better. You can help melt some pieces that are still not fully melted by stirring with a spoon. You do not want to over microwave your chocolate.

Valentine’s Bark

Prep Time: 3 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins


  • 50 Saltine Crackers
  • 1 Cup butter cut into chunks to melt down 2 sticks
  • 1 Cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 2 Cups White Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 Cup Pink Chocolate Melts
  • Valentine’s Sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a large cookie tray with aluminum foil. Spray with cooking spray. Line saltines up neatly in rows.
  2. In a medium sized pot melt your butter and brown sugar. Once butter is melted down, bring to a boil. Continue to stir the entire time and boil for about 2 minutes. It will look gorgeous and bubbly.
  3. Pour over the top of the saltines. Gently spread across the saltines.
  4. Place in oven and bake for about 7 minutes.
  5. While your crack is in the oven melt your pink chocolate melts according to package directions. *Please see the body of the post, I have included my no fail chocolate melting tips.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven and than sprinkle your white chocolate chips over the saltines. Your hot toffee mixture will melt the chips. I put mine back in the oven for a minute to move the process along. Once your chips are melting, spread across the top evenly with a spatula.
  7. Mix your pink chocolate into the white chocolate by pouring it over the top in a decorative way. I also used a butter knife tip to help combine my colors to my liking. Quickly decorate with sprinkles that tickle your fancy, the melted chocolate will act as your glue.
  8. Once chocolate is completely hardened you are ready to serve your LOVES.
