Looking for an easy dessert to bring to a party? Look no further than this chocolate bark recipe. It is versatile and can be customized to your liking! Add your favorite nuts and fruits. Use different types of chocolate, add marshmallows, crushed peppermint sticks, pretzels… the possibilities are endless!
Chocolate bark comes from the French word Mendiant; bars or disks of chocolate. Chocolate bark or Medniants differ from chocolate bars in that the nuts and fruit are left visible, giving the chocolate a pop of color and texture. It is made in large flat slabs and then broken into smaller pieces.
Here is my recipe:
Prep: 5 minutes Cool: 1-2 hours
16 ounces good dark chocolate ( I used Godiva Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers)
1 cup toasted, salted walnuts
1 cup dried cranberries
1. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. In a double boiler, melt chocolate.
2. Pour chocolate on pan and spread evenly using an offset spatula. Sprinkle with nuts and fruit. Allow chocolate to cool and harden. Break into smaller pieces.
3. Enjoy 🙂
