TikTok Strawberry Peanut Butter Chocolate Bark

Trust me when I tell you that this easy chocolate Strawberry Peanut Butter Bark recipe tastes delicious! For all of you who follow the latest food finds, @faithsfresh has started a new TikTok trend that’s worth a try.

I know the combination of peanut butter, chocolate, and strawberries sounds kind of strange, but it somehow just works well; it’s kind of like eating a chocolate peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich without the bread and a nice change from the frozen yogurt bark with berries.

Chocolate covered strawberries will always hold a place in my heart, but spreading peanut butter over the slices first makes the best frozen bark snack!

Substitutions and Additions

  • Choose Your Chocolate: Milk, dark, or even white chocolate can be used instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips in this recipe.
  • Pick Your Peanut Butter: Either creamy or crunchy peanut butter will work for your bark. I opted for a creamy consistency because I wanted a smoother finish when I spread the chocolate on top.
  • Use Other Oil: Canola, vegetable, and refined coconut oil are all great substitutes for vegetable shortening. 
  • Tasty Toppings: Feel free to use crushed peanuts or crumbled freeze-dried strawberries to top the bark if you don’t want to sprinkle it with salt.

How to Make Strawberry Peanut Butter Bark

  1. Slice The Strawberries: Remove the top, outer edges, and slice the strawberries lengthwise. Arrange them in rows. (Image 1)
  2. Prepare The Peanut Butter: Microwave the peanut butter for 15-20 seconds and spread it over the strawberries (Image 2). Freeze for 5 minutes.
  3. Melt: Microwave the chocolate and shortening in 20-second increments until smooth, stirring in between each burst.
  4. Top The Treats: Pour the melted chocolate over the peanut butter and top with sea salt (Image 3). Freeze for at least two hours.
  5. Slice and Serve: Slice into pieces, serve, and enjoy!

Tips For Making The Best Strawberry Peanut Butter Bark

  • Slice off the rounded edges of the strawberries so they lie flat and make the thickness of the slices as even as possible; this will make it easier to spread the peanut butter over them.
  • Don’t hull the strawberries; instead, use a sharp knife to cut the tops off, creating a flat surface. This will help create a nice, clean board on the edge of the bark.
  • Arrange strawberries on parchment paper in rows, alternating their direction so the triangular end of each strawberry fits into the gaps in the previous row.
  • If you are using a natural peanut butter that is already fairly loose, you will not need to microwave it. 
  • Adding vegetable shortening to the chocolate helps thin it out, making it easier to smooth over the peanut butter.
  • The sea salt is optional but highly recommended as it creates a nice sweet and salty finish. 

How to Store Strawberry Peanut Butter Bark

  • To Store: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer for up to three months.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I need to freeze my bark?

Freeze your bark for at least two hours or even overnight. You need to give it time to allow the strawberries to firm up and the chocolate to set.

Can I leave my bark on the counter at room temperature?

I recommend leaving the bark in the freezer until right before you intend to eat it. The strawberries get slightly soggy when left out at room temperature after being frozen.

How do I cut the bark to prevent cracking?

I find cutting through the bark with a hot knife easiest to prevent the chocolate from cracking. Run the knife under very hot water for 30 seconds to a minute to heat the blade. Be sure you dry it off before cutting.
