Crystal asked me to share the recipe for the Cranberry Pistachio Bark that I made last weekend.  It's so easy that it's almost not even a recipe!

Melt 1 lb. of good quality chocolate in a double boiler over gently simmering water.  Stir often until mixture is smooth and just melted.  Remove from heat.  Let cool until just warm - maybe 10 minutes.

Stir in 2 cups of dried fruit or nuts.  I used toasted pistachios and cranberries with the white chocolate and I'll use the almonds with dark chocolate.  The possibilities are endless!  Pour mixture out onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet and smooth the surface.  Place in the freezer for 2 - 3 hours until chocolate is set.

Remove from freezer and break into pieces.  Store between sheets of wax paper in tins in the refrigerator.
I had these 3 tins full from 1 large cookie sheet.  Enjoy !!!

See - I told you it was too easy!  I used Bernard Callebaut chocolate that I purchased at Nutter's, a bulk food store.


  1. Oh my, that looks scrumptious!

  2. Now I'm craving this! YUM!

  3. mmmmm i might have to make some of this too! I love Nutter's!!!

  4. Yum!!! I'll be missing this treat over the holidays, but I could definitely try to make it myself. Thanks for the recipe and idea.

  5. I love your bark recipe! I have already made and shared two batches - BIG hit!! Hey, I think I will go upstairs and make another batch now... I have milk chocolate in the fridge and almonds in the cupboard... Mmm...

  6. Thank you for sharing!!!! I'm going to make this for our gathering now!!!

  7. My bark is in the freezer :)

    I think I needed more white chocolate. Danny picked me up 1lb of bars and it didn't fill my cookie sheet (and was super chunky). It'll still be super yummy, just maybe not enough to shucks :)

    Thank you again for sharing!
