Chocolate Valentine Bark!

Here is a sweet and simple Valentine treat! I made these to put in Valentine Tins that I sent to my son and his roommates. I love making sweet treats for him while he is away at college. It lets him know I miss him; a lot!! And it's so much fun for me!!

Valentine Bark!
12 ounces Milk Chocolate
12 ounces White Almond Bark
M and M's 
Conversation Hearts
Valentine Heart Sprinkles
Melt the chocolate chips over medium heat in a double boiler.
Melt and stir until the chocolate is completely smooth.
Spread the milk chocolate onto a baking sheet until it is smooth.
Put the chocolate baking sheet in the freezer for approx. 15 minutes.
Melt the white Almond Bark over medium heat in a double boiler.
Mix until it gets smooth like the milk chocolate did.
Smooth it out over top of the milk chocolate.
Sprinkle the M and M's, the hearts, and the sprinkles
on top of the white chocolate.
Let sit at room temperature until set.
I let mine sit overnight.
Place in freezer for approximately 20 minutes.
Take out of the freezer.
Start randomly cracking the bark in 2 bite sizes.
Wrap up in a Valentine bag.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I will do 1 thing different when I make these next time.
I'll add something salty, like pretzels or peanuts. 
This would help cut the sweetness.
Sweets for the sweet!
