This chocolate peanut butter bark recipe really is as simple as melting everything, swirling it together, and then letting it harden. Here are some photos and tips about each step - the full recipe is in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post.
Melt The Chips Separately
Melt the chocolate and peanut butter chips in separate bowls. Either use a double boiler or place a glass bowl on top of a saucepan of boiling water.
If you try to melt the chips in the microwave, do it very slowly - at 10-second intervals - and stir them really well in between each. This will prevent them from burning.
Pour Melted Chips On A Silicone Baking Mat
After they are completely melted, pour them on your baking sheet. Add the melted chocolate chips first, and then pour the peanut butter on top of the chocolate.
Swirl Them Together
Use a butter knife to swirl the peanut butter and chocolate together in a circular motion. Do not overmix them.
Break Into Pieces
Place the swirled chocolate peanut butter mixture in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to let the bark harden. When they are completely solid, break the bark into smaller pieces.

How do you store chocolate peanut butter bark?
You can store this bark at room temperature, as long as it is cool. It will melt in a hot kitchen. So, if you think your kitchen will get pretty warm, place the bark in the refrigerator.

I highly recommend ChocZero! It's my all-time favorite. Besides keto-friendly chocolate chips, they have so many delicious baked goods and sweet toppings. You should try all of them!
Can I add nuts to the chocolate bark?
Yes, but it will increase the carbs and might be inflammatory for some people. I like to add a few pecans to my chocolate bark sometimes.
Can I add pork rinds to the bark?
Some people discovered that mixing some pork rinds into the melted chocolate gives the bark a delightful crunch. Yes, you can certainly add some pork rinds to the melted chocolate before pouring it on the baking mat.
Can I sprinkle salt on top?
Yes, that's a very good idea! Sprinkle some sea salt on top of the bark before it sets. This will not only give it a delicious texture, but it will enhance the sweet and salty flavors of both the chocolate and the peanut butter.
