Have no idea what is used to make that bark or all the different things you have tried...... but the 1st thing that popped into my mind when the pic opened was that it's very lightly brushed with white choco on top of  dark choco or white powdered coloring.

This technique is done by applying wafer paper to fondant, dampening it, then rolling the fondant out a little thinner.  When the fondant stretches, it causes the paper to crack, creating the bark look.  I will see if I can find a tutorial.
