Our Cilantro lime dip/dressing has become a family favorite. I picked this recipe up many years ago and today, whip it up almost monthly! This creamy and spicy dip is perfect with chips, warm tortillas, carrot sticks or even bell peppers. Adding a healthy squeeze of fresh, lime juice quickly transforms this into the perfect salad dressing or topping for fish tacos, fajitas or anything that begs for a cilantro side kick! Enjoy!
Serving Size: 2 1/2-3 cups when broken.
Total Prep Time: 1 hour
- 2 Bags of melting wafers, white chocolate by Ghirardelli
- Assorted valentine sprinkles
- Sea salt flakes
- Cookie sheet
- Wax paper
- Red and blue food coloring
- 3 small bowls
- small rubber spatula
1.) Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
2.) Melt chocolates in the three separate bowls. As soon as all the wafers have completely melted, you will work very quickly to create your desired colors for each bowl of chocolate.
Remember food coloring is very concentrated so just a single drop goes a very long way.
- 1 drop red = light pink
- The more red drops, the darker your pink will become.
- 2 drops red + 1 drop blue = lavender
- Equal drops of red and blue will create a true purple
You can continue to add drops according to how dark you would like your colors. You do want to make sure that there is a contrast between your three colors, light pink, medium pink and a lavender are the best pics.
3.) As you are working quickly, as soon as your chocolate has become the color desired, pour the different colors on to different sections of the wax paper covered cookie sheet.
4.) With The back of a spoon, spread the chocolate evenly to cover the entire tray.
5.) With a knife, swirl around the tray in different directions to create a “marble effect.”
6.) Cover chocolate with valentine sprinkles then shake sea salt flakes generously over the top.
7.) Stick it in the refrigerator (or freezer) for about 30 minutes to harden.
8.) Break into small bite-size pieces and store in an airtight container. Perfect for a little dessert platter for Valentine’s Day or packaging in a tin box as a gift!
“Love Bark” is exactly like the traditional “Peppermint Bark” made during the holidays except for the fact that we use white chocolate only and exclude the peppermint! Instead, we cover the shades of pink and purple “Love Bark” with lots of gaudy valentine-inspired sprinkles!
