"I like using a better grade of chocolate such as Lindt Lindor White Chocolate or different flavored Lindt White Chocolate bars. Better grade of chocolate makes a better bark! For my friends with a dark cocoa 80% - 90% addiction I'll put a thin layer of the dark chocolate and then spread the bark ingredients on top - fabulous"
