Birthday Bark

We wouldn’t be Sweet Little Vittles if we didn’t like SWEETS!  DUH…

And what’s sweeter than bark…or in this case BIRTHDAY BARK?!  This isn’t your run-of-the-mill fruit and nut bark (though I would NEVER turn away chocolate and nuts).  This is a fun festive treat, flavored with a little cake batter and topped with sprinkles.

Birthday Bark
(adapted from How Sweet It Is)

1 cup of dark chocolate chips
2 cups of white chocolate chips
2 tablespoons white cake mix (I sifted mine to remove lumps) 
sprinkles of your choice (at least 3 tablespoons worth or more)
Melt dark chocolate either in the microwave or a double boiler. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pour chocolate on. You can smooth it with a spatula to the thickness you desire. Stick in the freeze for 20 minutes.
Melt white chocolate. Whisk in cake mix slowly, stirring well until no lumps remain. Let it set for 3 full minutes (or at least until it slightly thickens). Remove baking sheet with chocolate from the freezer and immediately pour white chocolate on top. Sprinkle on sprinkles. Freeze for 20 minutes.
Once set, break into chunks. Keep refrigerated or eat immediately (which is what I did!)
