Cook's Tips:

You can use 2 packages (12 oz/350 g each) of confectionery coating candy melts instead of the almond bark.

Gently tap the pan flat against the countertop to level the bark before freezing.

To easily cut the finished bark, grasp the edges of the parchment to lift the bark out of the pan to a Cutting Board. Cut with the Chef’s Knife, wiping the knife clean with a damp paper towel between cuts.
