Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Bark
I have always loved chocolate bark. Not only it is delicious it is easy to make if you have dark chocolate on hand. I thought I would make a festive pumpkin spice variation since it is that time of the year! For the pumpkin swirl I used a coconut base sweetened with maple syrup and made aromatic with pumpkin spices and it is perfect with the rich dark chocolate! There is actually no dairy or refined sugar in this, so it is healthier than traditional candy. If you are not into commercial Halloween candy, this is for you! Plus, it is something that is good to make for Thanksgiving as well, if you need an easy dessert.
