You just know that we couldn’t let Valentine’s Day slide by without some themed recipes! We know how much you loved Crisp Me, Kale – and here’s another Kiss Me, Kate themed snack recipe for you – Wunderbark!
Fred and Lilli, despite their previous marriage and acrimonious divorce, find themselves performing in the same production of Taming of the Shrew. On the anniversary of their divorce, Lilli smugly announces her engagement to Harrison Howell. They recall the production in which they first met, and as they fondly reminisce they are reminded of the song “Wunderbar“, which is actually quite a romantic song, with waltzing and stuff. Their old feelings are almost rekindled until they come to their senses and go back to arguing and bottom slapping. Whatever works for them…
Making bark is super easy! Melt chocolate, spread it out, sprinkle stuff onto it, let it set, share it with someone you love. Actually that last part is optional. If you’re channeling your inner Lilli Vanessi you’ll keep it all yourself.
Melt two bags of chocolate chips – I use a microwave but you could use ye olde double boiler / bain marie arrangement if you like making work for yourself. Spread the chocolate out onto a baking pan lined with a silicone mat.
Sprinkle over some crushed freeze-dried strawberries and some mini candy hearts. Melt some red chocolate (I was super lazy and used one of these Wilton drizzle pouches!) and drizzle it over the chocolate. Let it all set fully, then break into pieces.
What a bright, shining star
Like our love, it’s wunderbark!
