There’s nothing more delightful than that mix of deliciously sweet with a touch of salty, so we know you’ll love our festive Chocolate Bark recipe!
This is one of our favourite simple recipes to get creative with, and even the kids can help! Perfect as a sweet snack with a cup of tea, we also love to add a little bit on a savoury cheese board. You really can add anything you desire into the mix, we’ve gone with salted crackers, pistachios and cranberries for a salty, jewelled, festive touch.
It also makes for a gorgeous homemade Christmas gift, just break some shards off and place in a cellophane bag and tie with a velvet ribbon.
What you will need
- 300g Dark chocolate
- 40g Pistachios slightly crushed
- Sprinkle of Chocolate Raisins
- 20g Roughly chopped dried cranberries
- 50g White Chocolate
- Large Pinch of Maldon Sea Salt
EQUIPMENT YOU'LL NEED
- Baking tray
- Greaseproof paper
- Knife to cut ingredients
- Chopping board
Let's get started...
Line a large flat tray with parchment paper.
Melt the dark chocolate gently in a clear bowl over a simmering pan until fully melted. Pour the melted chocolate over the parchment paper, leaving some room around the outside of the paper – don’t fill to the edge of the tray, the chocolate should be about at least 1cm deep.
Repeat step 2 with the white chocolate. Using a teaspoon, gently swirl the white chocolate into the dark chocolate – don’t mix it in too much, you want the white chocolate to stand out.
Add on all your toppings – cranberries, pistachios (or whatever you have chosen!)
Finish with a generous pinch of sea salt and Place in the fridge and chill overnight
Once fully set, have fun in breaking up your chocolate bark
