Terra Stix White Chocolate Bark

Written by chanie on March 10th, 2014


I can’t believe how the years have gone by so quickly. It feels like just yesterday that I was getting dressed up in my princess costume, hopping around town with my bag full of shalach manos. Now I’ve got my own little princesses in tow, and I’m the one doing the driving. Where oh where has all the time gone?

I have some great memories of my mother preparing Purim packages for family and friends. She’d often give out Boston Cream Pies from Schick’s Bakery with a bottle of wine, and I was all too happy to deliver it. I’d get a dollar here and a dollar there, and always an extra stash of candy to nosh on.

The Boston cream pies were always a huge hit, and a welcome change from the bags of pineapples and wine that filled everyones tables. When I was just married, I followed suit and made mini pies for everyone, with a side of chocolate dipped strawberries. That was a good one!

I wish I could remember all the cutesy ideas I’ve had over the years. And the not-so-cutesy ones too. One year, I decided to make candy apples (from the “Applebaums”) and it was a complete disaster! There was a burnt sugar and red food coloring all over the place, and the apples were so sticky, I could barely package them!

When it comes to homemade food gifts, chocolate bark takes the cake for the easiest one of all. But I couldn’t just make any boring old chocolate bark! While nuts and dried fruits are delicious, they’re fairly typical. Instead, I decided to combine sweet & salty flavors with milky white chocolate and colorful Terra Stix. The result is so gorgeous, it’s almost too pretty to eat. Except when you do, the combo is so good you don’t want to stop!

  1. I love the simplicity of this recipe but it must be packed with flavor! Sweet white chocolate and salty terra stix?!? Perfect!

    Candy, always a good gift. Very pretty packaging.

  3. Great idea! Hard to beat that color contrast, and doing it with candy isn’t the same. :)

    hi, can you pls provide a recipe to make the actual bark?

      Hi Riki, traditional chocolate bark is made by melting chocolate and spreading it out on a baking sheet and then sprinkling it with toppings. It does not involve graham crackers. Are you thinking of something else?

  5. Love the sweet and salty combination. This bark looks so beautiful with all the colors of Terra Stix. Great idea to add to mishloach manot baskets!

  6. I LOVE this idea! Beyond clever and delish!! I wish I lived near you. :-)

  7. This is gorgeous! I love chocolate bark and Terra chips (especially sweets & beets), but haven’t tried the stix yet. Such a cool idea!

    What size baking sheet do you use for this? Is it supposed to be real thin?
