Easy Fall Chocolate Bark

Easy Fall Chocolate Bark - a healthy, simple dessert for chocolate-lovers, loaded with classic fall flavors in every crunchy bite. |

This seriously easy chocolate bark recipe is loaded with all sorts of amazing fall flavors (think dried cranberries and apples, pumpkin seeds, and caramel pretzels!) for a healthy but addicting spin on dessert.

  • Yield: one 9" square bark 1x


  • 12 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped (I used 70% bittersweet)
  • 1/2 cup chopped NatureBox Salted Caramel Pretzel Pops
  • 3 tablespoons NatureBox Tart & Tangy Fruit Medley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped NatureBox Cinnamon Spiced Almonds
  • 2 tablespoons NatureBox Praline Pumpkin Seeds
  • 2 tablespoons NatureBox Apple Cinnamon Crave (I left out the plain peanuts in the mix)


  1. Line a baking tray with a sheet of parchment paper.
  2. Microwave the chocolate in a microwave safe-bowl for 30-second increments, stirring in between, until smoothly melted.*
  3. Using an offset spatula, spread a thin layer of chocolate onto the parchment in an (approx.) 9″ square, trying to keep the edges as neat as possible. Sprinkle chopped pretzels evenly over chocolate and pour most of the remaining melted chocolate on top, using offset spatula to gently spread out over first chocolate layer and cover pretzels.
  4. Sprinkle top evenly with the remaining toppings. Drizzle remaining chocolate on top.
  5. Refrigerate for 15-30 minutes, or until firm. Cut into pieces and transfer to an airtight container. I find that these keep best in the fridge because the chocolate stays firm and snappy, but depending on the temperature, they may be fine at room temperature as well.


*If desired, you could temper the chocolate when you melt it. If you do so, skip the refrigeration steps, since tempered chocolate does not need refrigeration to set quickly and stay snappy.

If you can’t get your hands one of the specific NatureBox products used in the recipe, feel free to substitute with something similar (i.e., chopped pretzels, dried cranberries and/or apples, almonds, pumpkin seeds, honey-roasted peanuts, white chocolate chips, etc.)
