Chocolate Bark is the ultimate DIY dorm room treat. You can make it using only a microwave! There are endless variations, so try mixing in some finds from the vending machine.

2 cups milk chocolate
½ cup dried cherries
1 1/2 cups walnuts
2 ounces good quality (contains cocoa butter) white chocolate

Melt the milk chocolate over a double boiler or in short bursts in the microwave. You want it to be just melted—don’t let it bubble or anything. Add the nuts and the cherries and stir to distribute.

Pour the bark onto a parchment-lined pan and spread it evenly with a spatula. Put the pan in the freezer and let the bark sit until hardened.

Melt the white chocolate in the microwave until just melted. Remove the chocolate bark from the freezer. Using a fork dipped into the white chocolate, flick your wrist to create streaks of white chocolate all over the bark. Return to the freezer and let harden.

Using your hands or a knife, break the bark into bite-sized pieces. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
