Great Valentine’s Gifts Can Be as Easy as a Fast DIY + Mark West Wines!

Looking for a great DIY gift to give? Here’s one that when partnered with a bottle of Mark West Pinot Noir or Mark West Black will have someone swooning! Think about doubling or tripling this recipe and put some in a sealed container in the freezer to use as last minute gifts. These are very special treats!




16 ounces 72% dark chocolate, finely chopped
3/4 cup crushed kettle-style potato chips, divided in half
1 teaspoon flaky salt (like maldon salt)

-Place chocolate in a large, heat-proof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water.
-Stir until melted and smooth.
-Remove bowl from heat and stir in half of the potato chips.
-Spread onto a nonstick pan into a rectangle, about ΒΌ inch thick.
-Sprinkle salt over all chocolate, then lightly press the remaining potato chips into the chocolate.
Set in a cool place to set for 1-2 hours.
-Break into pieces and serve.

You can give someone a bottle of wine to accompany the bark. I would suggest Mark West Wines- like one of these reds. The Pinot Noir is an interesting bottle and the Black has broad appeal when I have shared it with others.
