Lemon Chocolate Bark

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

Found this recipe while looking for a different one, & thought the lemon & chocolate combo sounded interesting! It's on my to-make list! If you plan on having this bark at room temperature for long periods of time, you should temper the chocolate to make it temperature-stable.

Be aware that normal food coloring or lemon extract can cause the white chocolate to seize. Use oil based color and flavor or add a little oil to the chocolate to stop it from seizing
