CHUBBY HUBBY BARK

Making homemade candy is part of holiday tradition in our house and many others. We love making easy, no bake treats but just because it’s the holidays doesn’t mean they have to be peppermint or fudge flavored. This bark was inspired by Ben & Jerry’s Chubby Hubby ice cream. I love this ice cream flavor partly because of how tasty it is, but also because of the story behind it.

The story goes that three guys were working together and one always talked about how much he loved Ben & Jerry’s. The other two created a pretend flavor and told him it was called Chubby Hubby. He looked everywhere for it with no success. His friends decided to make him a real batch after seeing how excited he was to try it. Ben & Jerry’s caught wind of this new flavor idea and now we all get to enjoy it!

Chubby Hubby Bark is a treat for the ice cream lovers in your life, all the flavor and none of the brain freeze. Get even more ice cream inspiration the next time you are in the frozen aisle and try your hand at recreating your family favorites. Just add the ingredients in your favorite ice cream flavors to the top of a white chocolate bark base.

You can make Chubby Hubby Clusters by putting some of toppings into each well of a muffin tin. Pour your white chocolate over your topping ingredients and allow to set. Make sure to use muffin liners to make removing easier. Use decorative liners if you are planning on giving the clusters as gifts.

VARIATIONS ON CHUBBY HUBBY BARK

  • Add ins: The beauty of chocolate bark is that you can mix in pretty much anything you would like based on what you’re craving. Some yummy add-ins are fudge, chunks of brownie, caramel, truffles, pecans, marshmallows, toffee, cashews, or drizzle with Chocolate Ganache
  • Flavoring: To give your bark some extra flavor, you can add a few drops of liquid extract. Chocolate, Vanilla, and Almond extracts would taste really good with the toppings of Chubby Hubby Bark.
  • Gluten free: To make a gluten free version of Chubby Hubby Bark, use pretzels that are marked gluten free.
  • Chocolate: You don’t have to use white chocolate, you can also make this delicious treat using milk chocolate, or dark chocolate instead. If you end up going with a darker chocolate, you may want to choose a lighter chocolate chip, like white chocolate, or chocolate caramel, to mix in to keep the flavor from becoming overpowering.

CHUBBY HUBBY BARK FAQS

  • What is Chubby Hubby? Chubby Hubby is an ice cream flavor that Ben & Jerry’s developed in 1994 and is based off of a joke.
  • What is bark chocolate? Bark chocolate is chocolate melted into a flat sheet with goodies like nuts or pretzels mixed into it to give it a bumpy, bark-like texture.  
  • What is the difference between almond bark and melting chocolate? Almond bark is not actually chocolate. It is a flavored mixture of vegetable oils, sugar, and other ingredients. However, is does not contain cocoa butter therefore it’s not chocolate. Almond bark is designed to melt easier but I prefer using real chocolate or white chocolate melting disks.

  1. This looks delicious! Question-you mentioned that you can keep it in the fridge-does that make the pretzels soft? Looking forward to trying it-my bf is a white chocolate fan so I’m always on the lookout for new recipes 🙂 Thanks!

    1. I didn’t notice a difference with keeping them in the fridge but it lasts for up to 2 weeks if you just want to store it on the counter, just make sure it’s not in a warm area. I hope he enjoys it!
