There's a kazillion different ways to do bark. The one I usually do is:

4 T coconut oil
1 T cocoa
1 scoop protein powder, chocolate
Splash of cream
Mixed sweeteners (2 packets Splenda, 2 packets Truvia) to taste

Then I add whatever else strikes my fancy. Usually natural peanut butter and some flavored SF DaVinci syrups.

I like this stuff on the sweet side, so I mix up the sweeteners and add them to taste.

Play around with it, there's no one set recipe.

I don't know how strong your stevia is, but it sounds as if your recipe asked for way too much. That would make it bitter. My stevia is 1 tsp. = 1 cup of sweetener. But al lot of them are 1/4 tsp. = 1 cup sweetener. If your stevia is like that, you put in 24 cups worth of sweetener.
