Hawaiian Bark with Kona Coffee, Macadamia Nuts & Coconut Flakes

Hawaiian Bark with Kona Coffee, Macadamia Nuts and Coconut Flakes

Chocolate Bark is a sneaky treat. See, it sounds fancy. But in reality it’s so easy to make that I’m almost embarrassed to share this Hawaiian Bark recipe with you. Almost

Chocolate bark is basically a homemade candy bar – topped with all your favorite ingredients. Pretty great, right? There are lots of great bark combinations using nuts, dried fruit, cereal, cookies and more. But I’m pretty predictable, and couldn’t help but top my latest creation with some of my favorite Hawaiian treats: Kona Coffee grounds, toasted macadamia nuts, and of course, coconut. 

In case you were wondering – yes, these are all cupboard staples in my house.

Ingredients
8 oz semi-sweet bakers chocolate
½ T butter
1 T finely ground kona coffee
½ cup chopped and toasted macadamia nuts
½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes

Instructions
Begin by melting the chocolate and butter together in a double boiler until melted and combined evenly. Line a 8×8 baking dish with foil, and pour the melted chocolate into the pan. Use a spatula to even out as much as possible. Then top with ground coffee, toasted nuts and coconut. Refrigerate for 2 hours (or overnight), and then break into pieces and enjoy.

    This is so good. I used coconut from a coconut and coffee we brought home from Kauai. I added a sprinkle of Hawaiian Red Sea Salt.
