Lavender Coconut Yogurt Bark with White Chocolate

Lavender Coconut Yogurt Bark 1 With Spring approaching, I want to share this yummy and aromatic Lavender Coconut Yogurt Bark. Bark candies are traditionally made with just chocolate, but I created a frozen yogurt bar this past summer and I thought, why not combine these two for one delicious dessert?!

This bark is lower in sugar than traditional bark from the use of the Greek yogurt, but still has that decadent flavor using melted white chocolate. Lavender is such a beautiful herb to use in dessert recipes. It is aromatic and adds a freshness to dishes, perfect for springtime recipes.
