Sweet and creamy white chocolate and dark crunchy cacao nibs come together into this stracciatella bark recipe. The white chocolate and cacao nibs contrast and perfectly compliment each other.
My husband lived in Germany for 2 years which is where he first had stracciatella gelato. It was amazing! He just talks and talks about how delicious is was. Basically stracciatella gelato is chocolate chip, but just so well executed. Creamy, smooth, sweet gelato with dark crunchy bits of chocolate.
When we were first married I saw some stracciatella truffles and bought them for his Christmas stocking. They had a creamy white chocolate center coated in white chocolate with cacao nibs. They instantly became a favorite.
This stracciatella bark takes all the flavors and textures of those sumptuous truffles and famous gelato but it is SO easy to make. No bake, you don’t even need a stove. Just melt the chocolate and “temper” it in the microwave and scatter the top with cacao nibs. Tempering is a process of cooling melted chocolate so that it sets up hard and shiny. It is normally tricky, but I have a great hack that makes it super easy OR you could use white chocolate or vanilla flavored almond bark. It takes just minutes to make and set up.
Perfect for a last minute gift. I sent some with my husband to give to his co workers yesterday. Because all I had were some leftover monster cookies and a half a batch of my red velvet fudge. Even with a newborn baby and a 2 year old I was able to make make it because it is just that quick and easy!
