White Chocolate Lime Bark

lime bark

It all started with an idea to upgrade a lime cupcake for a cooking demo…

I was scheduled to give a cooking demonstration at Woodloch Lodge that focused on using Young Living Essential Oils in recipes.  I had prepared lime cupcakes previously, and since it is my newest “recipe of the season” (expect to see the cupcakes appear frequently this spring), that was going to be one of the recipes for the demo.

Northeast Pennsylvania. March. Storm. No electricity.

The spa was running on generators (and doing very well with that!), and while I could have baked the cupcakes, I could not demo the frosting.  Time for plan B.

The “house” trail mix was available.  It contained dried fruit, cashews, nuts, and sunflower seeds.  A new recipe was born. And it is tasty.

Lime White Chocolate Bark

8 ounces white chocolate melts (preferable Ghirardelli)

Green paste food coloring

3-4 drops Young Living Lime Vitality Essential Oil*

1 cup trail mix of your choice

In a double boiler, melt the white chocolate. Once the chocolate is smooth, add the food coloring (liquid food coloring will mot work) and essential oil. Spread mixture on a sheet of wax paper or parchment. Sprinkle the trail mix on top of chocolate.  Press slightly.

Let chocolate set. When firm, break into pieces and serve.
