S&T Eats – Coconut & Chocolate Frozen Bark

Looking for a sweet treat to beat the heat this summer? Try this new, not-so-guilty favorite that only takes 4 ingredients and a few, simple steps!

This recipe is simple and quick with only one minor drawback.  It takes at least 2 hours in the freezer to be fully frozen yogurt bark.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is all you need: 

  1. One 8oz tube of Noosa Coconut Yogurt (Or your favorite coconut yogurt**)
  2. 1/8 cup of semi sweet or dark chocolate mini chips
  3. Parchment Paper
  4. Aluminum Foil

**I choose a full fat yogurt because it tends to have a little less freezer burn than nonfat yogurt.  However, either option works!

How to prepare:

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Spread the yogurt in a thin layer on the paper.
  3. Top with the mini chocolate chips.  You can also add fresh fruit and granola to spice things up!
  4. Cover the baking sheet with a piece of aluminum foil.  Place in the freezer for 2 hours or overnight.
  5. When the bark is fully frozen chop the bark into pieces to serve.
  6. Enjoy!
