- 2 12 oz. pkg high quality chocolate chips, like Guittard's extra dark chocolate, semisweet, or milk chocolate
- 1 1/2 - 2 cups cinnamon bears
Melt chocolate as directed on package. Pour just enough chocolate over waxed paper to thinly coat the bottom, moving side to side across the pan. Spread with spatula. Set 13-15 bears on top of the chocolate evenly spaced. Pour the rest of the chocolate to cover bears, again moving side to side across the pan. Use a spatula to help spread the chocolate evenly over the bears, being careful not to move the bears too much. You don't want them to end up bunched all together. Gently press the rest of the bears into the chocolate. Spread them so they are evenly spaced all over the top of the chocolate. Place in fridge to set. Once set, break bark into pieces. I find that smaller pieces work best because large chunks could get soft and messy before you have a chance to finish them, depending on the type of chocolate you use. Enjoy!
I would cut the 13-15 bears spread inside the bark in half. This would make it easier to break the bark into pieces once finished.
