Welcome to day 3, January 3rd of our daily National Food Day recipes. Today we have a Chocolate Covered Cherry Cordial Bark Recipe since it's National Chocolate Covered Cherries day!

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cordial Bark Recipe


  • 1 box Cordial Cherries
  • 1 lb almond bark chocolate
  • 1 square almond bark white chocolate
  • 1/2 cup maraschino cherries
  • Red sugar crystals for garnish


  1. Line or oil a baking sheet or cake pan to set your bark in.
  2. Set aside.
  3. Place your chocolate almond bark in a microwave-safe bowl.
  4. Melt for 35 seconds, then stir, and reheat as needed until the chocolate is completely melted.
  5. Place several dabs of melted chocolate along your cake pan and then set your cordial cherries and maraschino cherries in the chocolate.
  6. (Optionally, you can slice your cherries in half for less obvious bumps in your bark.)
  7. Pour the remaining melted chocolate over the entire pan - use an offset spatula to help you smooth the bark, as necessary.
  8. Let set at room temperature or in the fridge until hard.
  9. Melt the white chocolate almond bark and drizzle over the hardened chocolate bark. While the drizzle is still wet, sprinkle on your red sugar crystals.
  10. Break the bark into several bite-sized pieces before packaging or serving.
