  • 1

    Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Place white chocolate chips in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave uncovered for 2-3 minutes. Stir, and continue heating in short intervals until chocolate is smooth and glossy when you stir it.

  • 2

    Pour chocolate out onto parchment and use a large rubber spatula to spread in a thin, even layer (about 1/4 inch thick). Set aside.

  • 3

    In a small microwaveable bowl, microwave the dark chocolate chips uncovered on high for 1-2 minutes until almost melted. Stir until smooth and drizzle on bark.

  • 4

    Immediately sprinkle cereal over white and dark chocolate, pressing pieces into the melted chocolate very lightly, if needed. Sprinkle bark with red and green sparkling sugar.

  • 5

    Let stand about 30 minutes or until firm, or refrigerate if necessary. Break into 2-inch pieces. Store covered at room temperature.

Expert Tips

  • Place melted dark chocolate in a sandwich- or 1 quart-size plastic food storage bag. Seal the top and cut a small tip off one of the corners. Use like an icing bag to drizzle the dark chocolate over white.
  • Parchment paper works best for this recipe, but you can also use wax paper or foil in a pinch.
