There is a new dessert which has been invented recently called the “Bark”!
Bark literally means the dried up covering of a tree trunk broken into random pieces!This recipe has maybe followed that criteria only to have become famous and garnering more followers by the day.It consists of a paste of chocolate,ganache or cream studded with anything from cookie crumbs,Graham Cracker crumbs and candies to fresh fruits,nuts and dried berries.The majority of recipes use chocolate in various ways – melted milk/dark or white chocolate either one layer or multiple thin layers.I have used thick Yogurt as the base with healthy dried fruits on top!This is a lovely and healthy 3 ingredient recipe where there is fat free yogurt,natural honey and a lot of healthy dried fruit!
These barks can be had by people who are diabetic,wish to lose weight or for maintaining themselves.They can be made and stored in the freezer in the summers and will go down very well with kids.This ensures they do not eat too much of refined sugar and eat only healthy ingredients as desserts!
You can use dried fruits,fresh fruits or any other tidbits you like.
NOTE : Keep the Bark pieces in the freezer as the yogurt tends to melt fast.
