This is one of those recipes perfect to have on hand for the holidays or anytime you want to make a sweet treat that’s portable. It takes less than 10 minutes to make and is completely delicious and satisfying. Crunchy mulberries give this chocolate bark a texture reminiscent of a candy bar without adding any grains, popped rice, or other common ways to create a crispy chocolate! This chocolate bark is also beautiful to prepare and gift with the special touch of dried rose petals, orange zest, rose extract, which give the chocolate a delicate floral flavor with pops of citrus.

NUTRITION TIP: Mulberries contain iron, vitamin C, A, K, B vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants. Many states in the US actually can grow mulberries, otherwise you can purchase dried mulberries anywhere like health food stores.
