You can use chocolate chips in place of solid chocolate, if that's all you have on hand. No need to chop them before melting. You can use whatever salt you have around, but I'd advise against table salt. Use the best quality you can. I love the taste of grey sea salt but you can use Himalayan or whatever you prefer. The yield entirely depends on how large or small you cut your bark. It's enough for 1 large or 2 medium gifts (maybe 20-25 pieces) or you can chop it into 40-ish smaller pieces if you want more reasonable portions.
