The rules for making candy bark are so simple you barely need a recipe.
You will need
- 1 c. coarsely chopped pistachios
- 1 c. dried cranberries
- 3 c. white chocolate chips
- A pot of water
- A baking sheet
- Aluminum foil
- A spatula
- Dark chocolate
- Dried cherries
Step 1 Heat water Heat the water until it’s hot but not boiling.
Step 2 Line baking sheet Line the baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Step 3 Mix pistachios and cranberries In a bowl, combine pistachios and cranberries.
You can substitute dark chocolate for white chocolate, dried cherries for cranberries, or peanuts for pistachios.
Step 4 Melt chocolate chips Set another bowl over the pot of water, and pour the chocolate chips into it. Stir them constantly until they’re melted.
Step 5 Stir in mixture Remove the bowl from the heat and stir in half of the pistachio and cranberry mixture.
Step 6 Spread the bark Spread the mixture evenly over the baking sheet.
Step 7 Sprinkle reserve over bark Sprinkle the rest of the pistachios and cranberries over the chocolate. Use a spatula to gently press them in.
Step 8 Refrigerate Chill the baking sheet in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or until the bark hardens completely.
Step 9 Break the bark Take the finished bark out, and break the hardened chocolate into uneven pieces.
Step 10 Place in tin Find a pretty vintage tin to fill with your freshly made candy, turning it into the perfect gift for any occasion. For more candy recipes, visit HallmarkMagazine.com.
