A Christmas Recipe

I’m sitting at the computer typing while listening to Come On Christmas, by Matthew West (Thanks Sunny!)  If your bored and want something to do this Christmas Break, you should make this Chocolate Bark it’s so good. If you were wondering this is day 10 of Megan’s blogging challenge.

A Christmas Challenge

This recipe is from (I couldn’t find the link to this website)

Festive chocolate Bark, we have been making it for as long as I can remember. My family has adapted it a bit so here it is for you. Enjoy!


  • 1 Cup of shelled pistachios
  • 12 oz. of semisweet chocolate
  • 8 oz. of white chocolate
  • 3/4 cup of dried, sweetened cranberries (or unsweetened if your brave)
  • Sea salt or Normal Salt (optional)

Step 1

If not, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly toast for about 10 minuets, flipping occasionally. Let them cool.

Step 2

Melt the semisweet chocolate stirring until smooth. Do the same with the white chocolate (Tip: If you are using the stove top use a double broiler to melt the chocolate. If you use the microwave be extremely careful not to burn them or yourself!)

Step 3

In a small bowl combine the nuts and cranberries. Then stir half of them into the semisweet chocolate. Using a spatula, spread the mixture to about a 1/2 thickness on a large cookie sheet. Drop tablespoonfuls over the semisweet chocolate. With a toothpick or tip of the knife, swirl the chocolates together to create a marbled effect. Sprinkle on the rest of the nuts and berries.

Step 4

Refrigerate the bark for 1 hour or until firm. Then sprinkle salt on top, then break it into pieces. Store the bark in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to a month.
