Halva Chocolate Bark

Halva Chocolate Bark

Chocolate bark is one of those deceptively simple recipes. This version has the perfect balance of crunchy, sweet and salty.

Under 5 ingredients and so easy your 5 year old can make it.  Chocolate bark is my favorite quick no bake dessert.  

Using halva to flavor this bark is pure genius.
