Chocolate Bark with Pistachios and Pecans and Cranberries and….


You simply cannot go wrong when making a dessert using melted chocolate. Personally, I like to eat it straight from my mixing bowl, scraping every last drop onto a rubber spatula while standing over the sink wearing pajama pants, but that’s usually reserved for a time when I’m not having guests over. During occassions when I have to share, this creation is a bit hit.

I had some leftover melting chocolate to play around with after baking my most recent order of cake pops, so I threw pistachios, pecans and cranberries into my liquified substance to form a loaded bark. Feel free to incorporate whatever varieties of nuts, seeds or dried fruits sound good to you. Shredded coconut and flax make for great mix-ins as well. Just spread the mixture onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and freeze until solid.

Once it sets up, you can break it into pieces or chisel away at it with a kitchen mallet (so much fun!) and serve in completely un-uniform (did I make up a word again?) pieces.

Eat and enjoy one, or several (hey, some portions are very small and barely count as a serving!) hunks of this yummy, sweet, salty, chewy chocolate treat.

  1. This is such a good idea for an easy after-dinner treat! We sometimes just break out a good chocolate bar to serve as dessert when we have guests over–or when we don’t :)–but this is so much nicer and not a lot more work.
