Quick and Easy Dark Chocolate Fruit and Nut Bark
Author: Andrea Cammarata
  • 1½ lb Dark Chocolate… Adjust Amount to what you need
  • Apricots
  • Almonds
  • Cherries
  • Coconut
  • Mango
  • Walnuts
  • (adjust the amounts to your liking) and add whatever else you would like.
  1. Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper
  2. Chop up your fruits and nuts and combine them all together… place them in a bowl… or keep them all separate and sprinkle them one by one.
  3. Time to get your double boiler ready. Put about 2-3 inches of water in a pan ad bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer. Place a heat resistant bowl on top of the pan. Pour you chocolate in and mix with a spoon or spatula so the chocolate doesn’t burn. Keep stirring until everything is melted and creamy. Remove from the heat and allow it to rest for a minute or two.
  4. Now it is time to pour the chocolate onto the parchment paper. Be sure to smooth it over with your spatula. You can make it on the thicker side which would be approximately 4x10 or a bit thinner 5X11. Nothing has to be exact.
  5. Sprinkle the topping all over the chocolate
  6. Time to place the tray of yumminess into the fridge for a couple of hours until it is hard. Break it up into eatable pieces… place in a box or bag and seal it up as a gift or for any one at all. Perfect for Valentine’s Day… Galentine’s Day… Easter… a great Hostess Gift and just because.
  7. Fun Variations
  8. You can mix things up big time when it comes to Chocolate Bark. Add anything from Toffee Chips to Hot Spicy Mango and beyond! Try Slivered Almonds… how about stirring in a little bit of Nutella into your heated chocolate and then top with crushed Hazel nuts. Maybe add some Peanut Butter to the melted chocolate, about 1 tablespoon… no more than 2 and stir it through… top with crushed peanuts and more. How about trying Unicorn Bark! So many options… use your imagination!
