I am digging this yummy Christmas Chocolate Bark. Studded with rich pistachios, tart dried cranberries, and speckled with coarse chunks of salt, it’s a winner.
I believe the ideas for this flavor combo came from the fabulous Alison. I think this bark would make a wonderful gift for the holidays. Just don’t eat too much of it, as it’s very addictive.
2 cups chocolate chunks
⅓ cup pistachios (mine were unsalted)
⅓ cup dried cranberries
½ teaspoon coarse sea salt (I used almost 1 teaspoon, as I like salt a lot)
- In a small saucepan over very low heat, melt chocolate
- Pour chocolate into a parchment paper lined 8 x 8 inch baking dish
- Sprinkle pistachios and cranberries over chocolate
- Using a metal spatula, spread the mixture evenly back and forth to around ½ inch thickness
- Sprinkle salt over bark
- Allow to sit out until set, 1-2 hours
- Cut into 16 squares and serve
