Method:

Melt the dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl that sits on top of a saucepan with simmering water. Set aside and repeat the process with the white chocolate.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pour the melted dark chocolate into the sheet. Spread with a (heatproof) silicone spatula to get an even layer and drop spoonfuls of white chocolate to create swirls with a fine wooden stick or a knife.

Immediately sprinkle the mini pretzels and popcorn over the chocolate and gently use your hands to press the toppings into the chocolate. Let it cool at room temperature on a flat surface and then transfer to the refrigerator until completely hardened.

Break the bark using a sharp knife and store in an airtight container at room temperature. Warning: you’ll need to make several batches because people will ask you for more!
