Chocolate Bark is one of those overlooked Holiday treats that in my opinion really needs to be brought front and center. I mean, discount viagra ailment who doesn’t like a puddle of melted chocolate with delicious fruits and nuts pressed into it and then chilled? If you don’t like that then maybe you need to take a look in the mirror to check that you haven’t transformed into Scrooge or, dare I say it, the Grinch. Seriously, this sweet treat is doubly sweet because it is so easy to make.

Anyways, this post is already longer than it takes to make this delicious treat. So quit reading and get busy melting… chocolate that is. :)

Dark Chocolate Bark with Pistachios + White Chocolate

 14 oz. of semi sweet chocolate; chopped

1/2 14 oz. bag of white chocolate chips

1/4-1/2 cup whole lightly salted pistachios

Place the chopped dark chocolate into a heat safe bowl, over a pot of simmering water. Place the white chocolate in a separate heat safe bowl over a pot of simmering water and stir until chocolate is just melted. Remove the chocolate from the heat promptly to prevent it from burning.Line a sheet pan with wax paper.

Once the chocolate has melted, pour the dark chocolate over the paper and spread to form a rough rectangle. Take a spatula or palette knife and drizzle the white chocolate over the top of the dark chocolate. Run the palette knife vertically up and down the length of the bark in opposite directions to make the marbled swirl. Repeat this process across the width of the rectangle. Sprinkle the pistachios over the chocolate. Set aside for 2 hours until firm. You can place it in the freezer to cool quicker. Break the bark by hand for a rustic feel.
Happy Tasting!
