I love chocolate and I love berries. Top that off with coconut shreds and I am totally sold. We brought dark chocolate, blueberries, strawberries and unsweetened shredded coconut flakes to a completely different level in this American Flag Chocolate Bark. What a fun, festive treat for the kids of the family to enjoy making AND eating.
July 4th is always focused on fireworks and barbecues, which we are totally doing this year. People always forget to involve the kids and making something fun for the holiday. This year we made it a point to involve the kids more. We have got to absorb the time we have with them while we have them. Kids grow up way too fast and memories like “the day we made American Flag Chocolate Bark” are absolutely priceless!
I came up with a bunch of different ideas and recipes for the whole family to get involved and get creative, including this awesometacular American Flag Chocolate Bark! I, wholeheartedly, believe in the family coming together as one large unit. Even if your unit is not quite large at all, it’s large enough for all to come together and share some fun. Because, who doesn’t like chocolate bark in the shape of an American flag? Stop reading and go make your own American Flag Chocolate Bark—and create everlasting memories.

Total time: 8 mins
Cut berries and chocolate.
In a small glass bowl, add chocolate chunks. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring each time until creamy.
On a (preferably square) tray, pour melted chocolate. Using a spatula, spread out evenly up to the edges of the tray.
Cover the top left hand corner with blueberries. Top that corner with a bit of coconut for the "star-spangled banner" effect. Using the strawberries, create red stripes. In the empty parts, fill with shredded coconut to create white stripes.
Put into the freezer for approximately 10-15 minutes.
Using a knife, cut into the bark.
Serve in chunks.
