12 Feb Chocolate Bark
One of my very best girlfriends made this a few years ago (I get most of my great recipes from her) and now it has become a pantry staple. It’s great to have on a snowshoe hike or when your on the slopes. It is so easy and you can put whatever you like on top so try it and make it your own. Recipe found HERE Enjoy. I made it my own by using salted pistachios, golden raisins and dried cranberries.
You will need:
9.5 ounces very good semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
8 ounces very good bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 cup whole roasted, salted cashews
1 cup dried apricots, chopped
½ cup dried cranberries
Melt the two chocolates in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water.
Meanwhile, line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Using a ruler and a pencil, draw a 9” by 10” rectangle on the paper. Turn the paper facedown on the baking sheets.
Pour the melted chocolate over the paper and spread to form a rectangle, using the outline. Sprinkle the cashews, apricots and cranberries over the chocolate. Set aside for 2 hours until firm. Cut the bark in 1” x 3” pieces and serve at room temperature.
