  1. Fruit Substitutes: Instead of using cherry ripe, try using dried cranberries or cherries, blueberries, or raisins for a different twist on the recipe.
  2. Chocolate Substitutes: If you don’t have dark chocolate on hand, you can substitute milk chocolate or even white chocolate for a different flavor profile.
  3. Extra Flavorings: To give your chocolate bark a different twist, you can add different flavorings such as cinnamon, ginger, or vanilla extract.

200 gram block of good quality dark chocolate

1 Cherry Ripe bar* or 50g dried cherries, chopped


  1. Melt chocolate in a metal bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Once fully melted spoon the chocolate on to a sheet of baking paper on a flat tray and using a spatula spread out until the bark is about half a centimeter thick. While the chocolate is still soft top with chopped Cherry Ripe bar (or dried cherries).
  2. Place in fridge for 1-2 hours until the chocolate is fully set. Once set, chop in to 3 x 3 inch pieces. Enjoy!

*Cherry Ripe bars are Australia’s oldest chocolate bar, they are a delicious mix of cherry and coconut smothered in dark chocolate. They can be purchased online however if you can’t get a hold of one you can use dried cherries and coconut flakes which will also work great for this recipe.
