Pumpkin Pie Caramel Chocolate Bark Recipe (No Tempering Required)
Course: Dessert, Snack
Author: The Three Snackateers
Ingredients
You'll Also Need
  • Bark Mold/Baking Sheet or other items to pour the melted chocolate into such as Styrofoam plates, plastic coated plates, non-stick baking pans, or anything that will easily release the chocolate.
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Spatula
  • Double Boiler (optional)
Instructions
  1. Warm the pumpkin flavoring oil to room temperature following directions that came with product.

  2. Prepare the graham crackers mixture by combining crushed graham crackers, cinnamon, and light brown sugar and mixing well. (Use approximately 1.5 tablespoons of cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of light brown sugar for every sleeve of graham crackers you crush).

  3. Melt the chocolate using instructions that came with your chocolate. Ideally, use a double boiler (or a double boiler insert). Do not let the water touch the bottom of the double boiler. Only let the water simmer. Do not allow it to boil or you may burn the chocolate. If you must use a microwave, melt on medium heat for short periods being very careful not to overheat the chocolate.

  4. Add pumpkin flavoring oil (to taste) to melted chocolate.

  5. Pour the flavored chocolate onto a heavy weight dipping sheet lined baking sheet (or any flat bottomed surface – or pour DIRECTLY onto a sturdy wax coated paper plate or onto a Styrofoam plate) and spread with a spatula until it’s about 1/4″ thick.

  6. Immediately cover the chocolate with a layer of the graham cracker crumb mixture.

  7. Refrigerate until set-up (hardened) – about 15 minutes. Don’t leave the chocolate in the refrigerator for too long. The chocolate can become too cold and will “sweat” or even crack when brought to room temperature.

  8. While the chocolate is setting, melt the Chocoley Gourmet Caramel on low heat until it reaches 170° F. You can use a microwave on medium heat for short periods being very careful not to overheat the mixture.

  9. Remove chocolate from refrigerator and drizzle melted caramel over the top. Be generous with the caramel!

  10. Return to refrigerator until caramel has set.

  11. While the caramel is setting, melt Decocoa White Gourmet Compound Chocolate. Directions are on the package.

  12. When it’s ready, decorate bark with the white chocolate.

  13. Immediately sprinkle on fall sprinkles before the white chocolate sets-up.

  14. Return to refrigerator until white chocolate has set.

  15. Cut or break into pieces of whatever size you want! OR Don’t break up the bark before if you give it as a gift! It looks pretty cool as one big piece.

  16. Seal in an airtight container until ready to serve. Store at room temperature in low humidity.
