How to Make Shark Chocolate Bark Candy

Shark Week Chocolate Bark 1my boys LOVE shark week. i am not sure how they have become so obsessed with sharks, but we have been watching the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week shows the past few night. the boys have also been begging to make shark themed food. yesterday we made a watermelon shark. and today we made Shark Chocolate Bark.

it turned out pretty cool! and it was easy to make. i put together this quick tutorial on how to make it. plus, the recipe is easy enough for kids to make.

what you need to make Shark Chocolate Bark

two colors of chocolate melts, shark gummies, Pop Rocks (or sprinkles), parchment paper and a toothpick. i found the shark gummies at Spouts and the Pop Rocks at Michael’s.

Ingredients for Shark Chocolate Bark

first, melt the chocolate in the microwave. be careful not to over cook. i like to use the chocolate melts you get at the craft store. i found a light blue and a white chocolate that had speckles of other colors in it. i thought these would be good and not too dark so that you could still see the blue sharks on top of it.
