Christmas Chocolate Bark

christmas chocolate bark gluten-free recipe holiday

I am digging this yummy Christmas Chocolate Bark.  Studded with rich pistachios, tart dried cranberries, and speckled with coarse chunks of salt, it’s a winner.

I believe the ideas for this flavor combo came from the fabulous Alison.  I think this bark would make a wonderful gift for the holidays.  Just don’t eat too much of it, as it’s very addictive.

Christmas Chocolate Bark


  1. In a small saucepan over very low heat, melt chocolate
  2. Pour chocolate into a parchment paper lined 8 x 8 inch baking dish
  3. Sprinkle pistachios and cranberries over chocolate
  4. Using a metal spatula, spread the mixture evenly back and forth to around ½ inch thickness
  5. Sprinkle salt over bark
  6. Allow to sit out until set, 1-2 hours
  7. Cut into 16 squares and serve

Here are some other chocolate bark type recipes you may enjoy:
-Twisted Chocolate Bark from Diane of The W.H.O.L.E. Gang
-Easy Peppermint Bark by Alice of Savory Sweet Life
-Holiday Chocolate Bark from Nancy of The Sensitive Pantry

  11. karla atwood

    I love the sound of this recipe! I will definitely be making this over the Holidays!! ~~~Karla Atwood

  12. Sharon

    This sounds like a great recipe. Even with all of the dark chocolate bars to choose from I can’t find one that has rice crispies so I make my own just by melting some OG dark chocolate and adding some rice crispies.

  13. Karen

    What a wonderful giveaway at this time of year. Not sure it will help my chocolate addiction though :)

  14. And it looks beautiful as well…always a prerequisite for my holiday baking. Thanks for the recipe…goes along with several others that will make a fabulous holiday sweets gift.

  15. Cindy

    Oh my gosh! Those bars look fabulous. I’m going to have to make them.


  16. Abby H.

    That looks so good! I would love some chocolate drops :-)

  20. Tessa

    oh Wow. That is quite a give away. Thanks.

  21. Kandyce

    This bark looks incredible! Very festive. And a 10 lb chocolate giveaway? Even better :)

  22. Karen

    Very festive & easy. Love the ingredients…ten pounds of amazing chocolate would make a lot of great presents…teachers, neighbors, post woman, hair dresser… Thanks Elana!!

  23. heather

    Perfect four list of homemade gifts to give and to receive!

  24. Doreen Scholl

    I’ve never had chocolate with salt on it before, but somehow I know I’ll like it. I’m going to try it with almonds and dried cranberry, because that is what I have on hand.

  25. Thea

    Going to try this one this weekend! Thank you Elana!

  26. Heather

    Another simply beautiful recipe. Insulin shooting up at mentioned of 10 lbs!

  27. Adding this to our Christmas food gifts line-up.

  28. Leah H.

    Yes! I LOVE salt in my dark chocolate! This is on my Saturday to-do list!

  29. Wendy

    The chocolate bark looks delicious!

  30. Allegra Heidelinde

    Looks yummy! I heard on NPR last year the great idea of adding unusual spices to such chocolate makin’. Such as red chile (think mole), curry, or lavendar…..Mmmm, seriously just think what could be done with 10 pounds of chocolate! :)

  31. Risa

    I cannot wait to make this for Christmas snacking!

    Thanks for the great recipes

  32. Danielle Miles

    Elana, I have just recently discovered your website. I have three boys and a hubby. All of them gluten intolerate. Finding you has been invaluable. I love your recipes. Cooking for my family is my passion and you have been a huge inspiration to me. Thanks for your work. We would LOVE the chocolate!

  33. Danielle Miles

    Elana, I have just recently discovered your website. I have three boys and a hubby. All of them gluten intolerate. Finding you has been invaluable. I love your recipes. Cooking for my family is my passion and you have been a huge inspiration to me. Thanks for your work. We would LOVE the chocolate!

  34. Denise

    I love chocolate with fruit and nuts! Adding salt makes it sound even better!

  35. cindy

    yum looks delicious. could make lots of chocolate bark with 10lbs of chocodrops. Thanks for the chance.

  36. Rainya

    I made the snickerdoodle colors from the Almond Flour cookbook (one of my fav recipes!) last night. 10lbs of chocolate would certainly be a welcome addition to my pantry!

  37. Sarah

    By everywhere, does that mean South Africa too?? Oooh would love some good quality dark chocolate! What a treat! Yum, I have cranberries and pistachios all ready to go ;-)

  38. Briita

    Who could go wrong with chocolate and salt? Have you ever had the sea salt and sugar dark chocolate covered almonds from trader joes? I bet this bark is even better.

  39. Molly

    Wow! Easy recipe that will make a great hostess gift! Can’t wait to try it!

  40. I can’t wait to get the ingredients and start this new holiday tradition – so much simpler and cleaner than in years past. It’s going to make a great gift for my neighbors and friends this season. Thanks Elana!

  41. Lori Lane

    We’ve been making chocolate bark at my house for years. We love to experiment with different combinations of nuts and dried fruits. One of our favorites is chopped dried aricots and cashews.

  42. Tammy

    Thanks Elana I love the combination in this yummy bark. It was delicious…thanks again for all your dedication to our sensitivities.

  43. Sarah

    Oh my goodness, 10 pounds of chocolate ?!? I’d have to hide it. I ate 4 squares of baker’s chocolate yesterday. That’s right, the unsweetened stuff. Someone’s gonna have to invent cacao concentrate to satisfy my dark chocolate tooth someday.

  44. Kathy

    Sweet Paul has a recipe in his online holiday magazine using pistachios, dried cranberries, white chocolate and marzipan.
    I want to try it also, but I think the dark chocolate would be my
    favorite. Thanks for the recipe.

  45. Charmaine

    I have a Green and Black organic hazelnut and currant chocolate bar hidden away just for me to nibble on :-), and I think I can adapt your recipe to make something like that on my own. (I’ve got fresh roasted hazelnuts coming soon!) And Dagoba chips are the bomb!

  46. I would certainly love some dark chocolate. I could make this and share it with the Dove’s Nest Home for women trying to free from the ravages of drugs and alcohol. I make crafts with these ladies once a month!

  47. gail rosenfeld

    This looks great – I love salt with chocolate, too. Would also be good with dried apricots…

  48. sas

    mmmm…. chocolate bark! I made some a few years ago before I started my current eating plan, perhaps it’s time to go searching for that recipe and get cookin’! Thanks Elana for all your wonderful inspiration!

  49. Mary Carroll

    This looks like an awesome gift; problem is, I don’t think there’d be any left to give!

  50. Lynnette

    I cant wait to make these for Christmas. My family are all coming to my house and they will all be delighted with these!! Thank you Elana!

  51. Lisa

    Wow…this recipe looks wonderful. I’ll definitely have to try it!

  52. Julia Mielish

    Wow, 10 lbs of chocolate is wonderful, but Dagoba? That is beyond wonderful and will definitely beat anything going under the tree this year! Dagoba is organic, environmentally friendly, and a great company. I think it would be great to split that into two packages, and that way two of us will be lucky enough to win. :o)

    I will definitely be making some of your chocolate bark this year and will probably pull out a couple of other GF cookie recipes over the weekend.

  53. Anna

    This is such a good gift idea! I was looking for something easy, good and different.


  54. Lori

    Wow! How refreshingly simple yet elegant for the holidays. This is going to be my new tradition at holidays. It’s even nutritious, but I won’t spoil the indulgence factor by letting that fact be known!

  55. Bev

    Everything on this post looks so good and easy I’m going to treat all my friends (gf or not) to your beautiful and scrumptious treats! Thanks for making my holiday cooking-giving so safe that I can even lick my fingers (something I trained myself to not do years ago). LOL

  56. Michelle

    I have tart cherries on hand to make your Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies, from your book “The Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook.” I will use the remaining cherries in place of the cranberries called for in this recipe.

    Perfect to bring to holiday parties – thank you!

  57. LOVE this recipe! Hope I win so I can make a ton of it!

  58. Becky

    10 lbs. of chocolate? Yum!

  59. virginia howell

    These gluten free candy recipes are awesome! So great to have ways to enjoy Holiday treats and still keep to the diet!

  60. Stefanie P

    this just may be what I make for teacher gifts — looks fantastic!! the Dagoba chocolate would definitely be put to good use!

  61. Jennifer Pfeiffer

    That looks delicious! I’d love to take that as a gf alternative at a holiday cookie exchange I’m attending. Thanks as always.

  62. Leona Ward

    Your bark recipe is very timely. I have been busy making bark covered popcorn and marshmallow popcornballs for holiday gifts.

  63. Belinda

    Wow! I never would’ve thought to try that much salt in a chocolate recipe. I will definately try this one!

  64. Kate

    that’s an amazing giveaway…to enjoy in an amazing recipe…I like the salty addition to it.

  65. Melissa Derr

    That sounds yummy hope i win so i can make it!!

  66. Mary Mitchell

    I so look forward to your daily emails with all of your fantastic recipes. It really puts a smile on my face to know that I am preparing much healthier food for my family. And Chocolate, that is such a bonus. This recipe will definitely be on one of our Holiday plates.

  67. Amy in KY @ kyfoothillscoop.com

    Elana —

    10 pounds of Dagoba Chocolate Bits! OMGoodness! Do you know how many holiday presents I could provide with this? My family, friends and neighbors would be ever so thankful! :-) ‘Tis the season for giving.


  68. This sounds yummy! Is the chocolate dairy free?
    Thanks for your wonderful work, Elana!
    Nancy Jo

  69. Jamie S.

    omg-please pick me for the dark chocolate give away so i can swim through chocolate bark heaven. i’m on the paleo diet and it’s the only thing i “cheat” with.

  70. Mary Kay

    THIS is what I’m giving my friends and neighbors for the holidays. It’s so YUMMY!

  71. Kathleen

    The bark looks delicious; I will be making it! 10 lbs of chocolate… yum!

  72. Michele

    10 pound of chocolate! That should last through the weekend. :)

  73. mary-ellen breton

    oh my I am making this tomorrow! I have a stash of Lindt 72% in the pantry and this will be so much better than just eating it plain.

    Love your books and this website – inspirational to this Type 2 diabetic who plans on being in charge (and in good blood glucose levels) for many, many years.

  74. Louise

    I am very impressed with the prettiness of this bark; red and green in dark chocolate….BEAUTIFUL and So Tasty. thank-you for sharing. I have been wanting the Almond Flour Cookbook, it would be lovely to win.I just recieved my first shipment of Almond flour a couple of days ago!

  75. Rebecca

    I love chocolate and I am out of baking chocolate! 10 pounds would be awesome!

  76. erica

    Looks wonderful!! My favorite chocolate recipe has to be your flourless chocolate cupcakes. They are my go to when I need a major chocolate fix :)

  77. The pistachios and cranberries make this bark look very festive! I’m all about baking my presents and I think this will be added to my collection of goodies.

    Thank you Elana!

  78. VinXpert

    My three favorites, dark chocolate, cherries and pistachio nut together adn fabulous! Will definitely be making these as favors for a glulten-free rehearsal dinner; thanks for the recipe.

  79. VinXpert

    Oops; meant cranberries!

  80. Laura

    Oh, I LOVE chocolate! In fact, I am eating chocolate now while sipping my coffee. I made your GF Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins for the first time this morning and they were a big hit with the kids. Two thumbs up from all of them. Thanks so much for all you do!

  81. kat

    what a great giveaway!

    the chocolate bark looks incredible!

  82. Becky Rawalt

    This really looks like a great Christmas gift, with the pretty red & green swimming in beautiful chocolate :-) How can you go wrong!

  83. Nancy Vinson

    What a fantastic giveaway and at the perfect time of the year. Thank you.

  84. Brandon May @ thehealthyadvocate.com

    This recipe gives me SO many ideas! Thank you for sharing this Elana. I hope you had a good Hanukkah! :)

  85. Katie H.

    No better combination than chocolate and sea salt!

  86. Ah, I can’t wait to go home for break and make this bark! Looks amazing! Dark chocolate is my favorite!!!!

  87. Tammy Lou McIlwain

    You are a wonder Elana! Oh the recipes of yours I could make with all that chocolate. I love giving gifts of food made with my own hands for the Holidays. Probably not as much as the people that receive them as they get to eat them! Cook on and here’s to all the new recipes you’ll creat in the New Year. Tammy Lou

  88. This looks amazing! My daughters and I, were just talking this morning about what to give to our friends. We always like to give home made goodies. Thanks for the great recipe, cant wait to make it.

  89. Lindsay

    I would love to do some candymaking with all of that chocolate!

  90. Angel

    Thanks for another yummy recipe! I would not have thought to add the salt, but I can’t wait to make it! I love, love, love your recipes!

  91. Emily

    This recipe is gorgeous! I have never seen CHOCOLATE Christmas bark. I will be making this for my family, for sure. They are all choco-lovers! I bet it is addicting :)

  92. Melissa

    Mmmm, I love chocolate bark- it’s so versatile and pretty for the holidays! It’s great to give away as gifts, and of course, keep a large chunk for yourself! I too LOVE salt, and always sprinkle some coarse Celtic sea salt on top of my fruit/nut/chocolate creations. I would love to win all of that chocolate to create some awesome bark recipes!

    Also, I am going to make a version of your foot balm this weekend for myself, and for all of the ladies I love. Organic, natural, and healing, what a great holiday present idea!

  93. Donna

    Wow, what an amazing giveaway! I have 3 kids and we do a lot of baking, lots! They LOVE LOVE LOVE the chocodrops; it’s their favorite chocolate and I can’t complain. Our family would love to win this giveaway. I actually got my kids into making some of your recipes by letting reading some of your blog posts that you mention your children loving. Our first attempt was the coconut macaroons; they were a BIG hit! Thanks for all your yummy recipes.

  94. Ashley Craft (Taste for Healthy) @ tasteforhealthy.blogspot.com

    I’ve been making a version of this for gifts… my friends & family love it!!

  95. Heidi

    Now if only I could have pistacios in the house without devouring them!
    But it could be worth it with this recipe just by the holiday cheery look of them.

  96. ~M

    I adore Dagoba’s chocodrops and would really like to win this giveaway!

  97. This looks delicious! I look forward to trying this recipe out, too. (I love the chicken w/ cherries and kale, and regularly use the dessert recipes). Thanks!

  98. Maria L

    Yum yum and more yum! Love this recipe- and so will my hubby.

    He’s praying I win that organic chocolate too! :)

  99. Free chocolate? OF COURSE I’M INTERESTED! What an awesome giveaway. I decided to make barks this year instead of cookies. I just made 3 different types this week – white chocolate with dried cranberries and pistachios, white chocolate with trail mix and M&Ms, and dark chocolate with Andes mints chopped up on top. All three are different, easy to make, and delicious!

  100. Maria

    Wow! Offer to give away 10 lbs. of chocolate, and just look at all the comments! I’m adding mine, because I just looooove dark chocolate…..and I can’t get those chocodrops where I live.

    Honestly, Elana, this recipe looks heavenly!


  101. sheena

    All I want for Christmas is this chocolate.

  102. Kirsten

    This chocolate bark is just the thing to bring to our Christmas party gift exchange tonight. Perfect timing, Elana! Please enter me to win that chocolate – YUM!

  103. What a beautiful treat! I love the specks of color in the chocolate.

  104. Hope Friese

    Great looking bars! And I would, of course, love to win the chocolate! Thank you!

  105. Mary Kate

    Wow 10 pounds of chocolate! I love dark chocolate, especially anything over 70%. I would definitely try my hand at chocolate bark if I won this. I have tons of shelled pecans in my freezer from our pecan tree so I would probably try adding some pecans to my bark. And maybe some dried cherries.

  106. Christiana

    SooOOooo delicious! So pretty! And good for you! A little dark chocolate every day is good for your heart, so they say. Operative word being little though! This is another print-out for my recipe box, now mostly filled with Elana’s wonderful recipes. I love the simplicity of these recipes, thank you!

  107. Sheila Freehill

    I am going to try this chocolate treat and give it away for holiday gifts. Thanks. I also just got your cookbook asa gift from Seneca and I love it. I made your Chicken Piccata with tilapia instead, it worked pretty well, but the fish fell apart a bit.-Sheila

  108. I just got a tempering unit and would love some dark chocolate to make delicious heart healtrhy gifts for the holidays! : )
    Thanks for the amazing recipe. I look forward to making this for my hubby who loves 73% and up cacao, and loves ssea salt : )

  109. Jennifer @ marriedtoabmw.com

    Mmm, that sounds delicious. I love pistachios!

  110. marsha

    Ooooo, I’m already calculating how many of your choco chip cookies I would be able to make…

  111. Stephanie

    Wow! 10 lbs. of DARK chocolate. My second favorite is pistachios. Oh, now I’m in heaven. What a sweet-tart of a recipe. Thank you.

  112. nancy

    ooohh! this looks so yummy! I love sweet and salty!

  113. We LOVE the Dagoba chocolate you use in your recipes. At first we thought it was a bit too strong and bitter, but it grew on us and now it’s all we use. Thanks!!!

  114. lori

    Love the addition of salt to bring the wonderful tastes in this bark together.

  115. Nathalie

    I’m making this on the weekend! can’t wait :)

  116. Arthi

    That looks awesome and as usual the giveaway is fabulous.

  117. stephanie

  118. Peiwen

    Another great gift idea! I would love some dark chocolates!

  119. Karen@Cook4Seasons @ cook4seasons.com

    I cannot keep up with all of the Elana recipes I am making right now (nor can my waistline LOL…this one I started last week when I found a recipe for bark using white chocolate (which I don’t.)
    Thank you again – I think:)

  120. Jenn Purdy

    This will be my contribution to the book club pot luck & ornament exchange next week. Thanks, Elena!

  121. Heather

    My son and I love chocolate, but need to eat dairy free due to a sensitivity. Sometimes finding dairy free chocolate is challenging and it is often expensive when we do find it, but we wouldn’t want to live without chocolate chip cookies, or banana chocolate chip muffins or pumpkin chocolate chip muffins…..mmmm I cook alot because of our need to avoid dairy and love to come to this site for inspiration. Thanks for all of your wonderful giveaways.

  122. Sara

    10 pounds of chocolate – yes please! The bark looks fantastic.

  123. Michelle H

    Chocolate…Chocolate…Chocolate!!!!! A great giveaway and a million ways to share it with all my friends and family! I might try dried cherries and pecans in my bark this year.

  124. Molly

    OH MY GOSH!!! This has all the ingredients I want in a treat! I would so very much love the chocolate for this. I cannot wait to make this and share it with people (so that I don’t eat it all myself!!)

    Thank you Elana! you are wonderful.

  125. the blissful baker @ theblissfulbaker.wordpress.com

    that chocolate bark looks great! i love the ingredients you chose to add – perfect combination!

  126. Chris Dunkel

    Chocolate has to be one of my favorite things!

  127. Sharon

    I love dark chocolate. It is just so heavenly. And I love your site. Keep up the good work.

  128. Lisa Vance

    Would love to make some chocolate bark this year… and I’m hoping to tailor this recipe to make some white-chocolate / peppermint bark too! Thanks for the tips.

  129. Karen

    I have used your fabulous ideas for over 2 years. I love your creativity and simple recipes. You make staying healthy fun. I have not had a lot of luck finding Dagoba choco drops in my town and have to order them. Needless to say I would be very appreciative of this give away.

  130. Lynne

    This looks wonderful! My eyes are wide imagining all the possibilities that 10 lbs of chocolate bring!

  136. Joy

    Hey Elena,

    Wow! Ten pounds of dark chocolate would be a dream come true. Dark chocolate is my favorite, the darker the better. I look for all your new recipes to come out with chocolate in them. I’m eager to try out this new chocolate bark.

I only just discovered that u can finally eat (only the organic) chocolate again so I’m enjoying new ways to enjoy after 7 years without it!! ThNks, Elana, for the opportunity!

  141. Chelsea

    Russian Tea Cakes are my favorite holiday cookie…do you have any ideas on how to make a gluten free, almond flour version of these?

    Thanks so very MUCH for all the GF recipes that I’ve gotten this year through your Elana’s Pantry site. They have been a wonderful addtion to My(I’ve started getting GF recipes From EVERYWHERE) GF cookbook! Since I’ve HAD to go GF my other recipes had to go, and I’m not good enough to convert them YET!

  145. Joey

    This looks delicious. I make bark with coconut oil and Xylitol. I also add goji berries and nuts to mine. I think I’m going to give yours a try. You can put so many things in the bark to give it texture and new flavours. Thanks for this.
    Happy Holidays to you and your family Elana :)


  146. Alyssa C.

    That looks so easy and yummy….something you can really throw together quick! Thanks

  147. Stephanie L

    Wow ten pounds of chocolate heaven. I have your cookbook, every recipe is sooo amazing. My fav are the breakfast bars, which I think are actually from your website and the tropical chocolate chip cookies!!

  148. You sure keep coming up with GREAT ideas! Thanks for sharing!!

  149. EG

    These look delish! Can’t wait to try my own!

    Might be making a lot of that and giving it away as gifts.

  153. Doriantake

    You know, I would usually only make something like this in small batches, but with the 10 pounds of Dagoba! Well…lets just say my siblings would have a very chocolaty holiday season ;)


  154. adriane

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  162. I think I’ll definitely have to use 1 tsp of salt as well – I LOVE the salty chocolate combo! Thanks for sharing such a delicious sounding recipe!

  163. This would also be perfect to put in Christmas baskets! And then give the recipe so we can spread GOOD gluten free food.

  164. Rhonda

    Absolutely a winner here. I added pepitas also

  165. Josie

    I would love to make these for my family and friends to help them understand that I’m not missing out on anything just because I’ve gone gluten free. Thanks for the chance to win the Dagoba chocolate!

  167. donna @ ekoaromas.com

    Yay for chocolate! Thank you for doing this giveaway. :-)

  175. D. Linehan

    10 pounds of Dagoba chocolate–I can almost taste the chocolate bark & the coconut chocolate ice cream–yummy!

  176. Carol

    Mmmm… We all love dark chocolate, and I love that all those beautiful additions are healthy, as well. Will make wonderful gifts for family and friends.

  177. Pam R.

    Yum yum… I’m loving the sweet, tart and salty combo!

  178. This does look addicting! I can’t wait to buy pistachios to make it!

  179. susan

    I am making gifts of your chocolate bark to all the parents at my school who have helped me and the 100 3rd and 4th graders with our winter solstice program (and other celebrations of light from around the world). So I could use the gift of chocolate bits from winning this contest! Parents deserve a thank you because they help with costumes, lines, props, sound effects and a little orchestra to accompany their amazing children, best entertainment in New Haven!

  180. Katie

    I used to make a chocolate cookie bark before I had to go gluten and dairy free. I never thought of making it with dairy free chocolate!!! I would LOVE to have 10 lbs of chocolate to make all sorts of new exciting barks, including the one above!


  181. 4kiddos

    I love the red of the cranberries and the green of the pistachios! How festive! I would love to make this as gifts! Thanks for the recipe, can’t wait to try it!

  182. Kristen

    Chocolate & pistachios? Sounds fabulous!

  183. Sarah from Ontario

    I am a chocoholic… Best contest ever!

  184. Rachael

    We are very addicted to dark chocolate! My husband loves the 100% dagoba bar.

  185. Kelli

    Wow ! That looks amazing !

  186. Karen F

    Yummo! This reminds me of the “scroggin” we used to make in childhood as a hiking snack food. It had a lot more dried fruit and nuts in it–the chocolate just held things together. The salt is a great idea–especially in a hiking food, as it would help replace electrolytes.

    Who wouldn’t want to win 10 lbs of delicious dark chocolate?!

  187. MaryK

    Wow…what a gorgeous color combination…can’t wait to make some. Thanks Elana

  188. aziza

  193. Thank you so much for this recipe! This looks delicious! We can’t get chocolate chips easily over here in our part of the world. I would love to try the Dagoba ones!

  195. Rachel

    Chocolate bark makes such a great, easy gift! I also like to sprinkle in cinnamon into the melted chocolate for a little somethin’extra! 10 pounds of chocolate would make so much bark!! YUM!

  196. Denise

    this looks good. My favorite bark this year is with peppermint, i wonder if there is a healthier recipe using it.

  197. diane

    This looks sooo good! I am a dark chocolate lover.

  198. Love your site and definitely need to make the pistachio and cranberry bark this year.

  199. Wow Elana,

    ~Mrs. R

  200. Karin

    I just ordered some drops from Amazon and was a little surprised that shipping was almost as much as the drops. I would love more to keep some for myself and to share with friends.

  201. Kristina Elliott

    This sounds wonderful! I am new tp your site. I love it so much. I recently discovered that foods such as wheat and dairy just don’t agree with me. After struggling for years with being I’ll and doctor after doctor telling me it was just hormones and then just changing my meds I was fed up with feeling bad and ventured out to find my own solution. I was amazed to find just eliminating these foods from my diet were just what I needed. I love your page so much bc I am a dietitian and it is so great to find a place that has healthy recipies that taste so good. It’s so hard to adapt to this lifestyle but after finding your book with help from a friend this transition has been much easier. Thank you!!!

  202. Elise (Healing Cuisine) @ healingcuisinebyelise.com

    Pistachios! What a great addition idea for that *pop* of color! Yummmmy!!

  203. Mia

    Your Christmas Chocolate Bark looks wonderful!

    My bf buys 100% Dagoba chocolate and makes his own Chocolate with Xylitol from Global Sweets. He then makes his own chocolate chips in molds and chocolate bark creations from there. The latest yummy creation has been hazelnut dark chocolate bark. Yum!

  204. Jenna

    Just got your cookbook today! So excited. I’ve been making truffles for years, and the sight of this chocolate makes me whimper.

  213. First – wonderful recipe! Second – amazing giveaway! I was just looking at the Chocodrops today wondering if I should splurge and get some. To have 10 pounds – I would be in heaven!!!
    Thanks for all of the wonderful giveaways!

  214. Natalie Palmer

    I love chocolate!!! Just made your Christmas Chocolate Bark, waiting for it to cool so I can eat some! I did take a spoon full while I was spreading it out (shhh)

  238. Karen

    Anything Chocolate! But this sounds great-thanks!

  240. Karen W

    Thanks for the great gift ideas… I’m going to make this and your foot balm for holiday gifts!

  241. I just made your chocolate orange truffles and let me tell you they rock!! I also modified the recipe and made a chocolate mint almond and a peanut butter chocolate. All good, I mean all great! I meed those chocolate chips to start a revolution. Ya know what I mean??

  242. Ange & Health & Swellbeing @ healthandswellbeing.com

    Wow- what an awesome giveaway!!
    This is such a great gift idea…and definitely the kind of gift I would want to give away right away so it doesn’t find it’s way into “the wrong hands” :)

  243. Shari F.

    10 pounds of chocolate? Amazing! Thanks for encouraging us to explore with you . . .

  244. KellyBelly

    Tomorrow we are suppose to get somewhere between 8-16 inches of snow! So I am planning on a baking for the holidays marathon. This no bake bark treat will be easy and fun to add to the list of goodies and balms (you have even us so many great recipes lately) I’m planning on.

  245. Asia

    I’ve been thinking about making chocolate bark this holiday season– last year I made it with pepitos, dried cherries, salt and chili powder. It was great, but I need to remember to temper the chocolate! Your recipe here looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it.

  246. Dee Fredrickson

    Can’t wait to try this chocolate bark. I will be substituting another type of chocolate as I live in rural Idaho and good chocolate is not available. Would be sooooo happy to win the 10 lbs. of wonderful chocolate.

  247. Susan M.

    Mmmm, you had at me dark chocolate. I’d love to try experimenting with different nuts (maybe some hazelnuts or macadamias) as well as various dried fruits (unsulphured, no sugar added tart cherries). I only use dark chocolate when I bake and I’ll definitely be going through A LOT of it when I bake up my batches of Christmas cookies in these next few weeks. Looking forward to adding some gluten-free cookies to my reportoire (including your GF chocolate chip cookie recipe). I LOVE Dagoba dark chocolate and that 10 pb. bag sure would come in handy!

  248. Matt

    Yum…chocolate, nuts & dried fruit…great combo!!!

  249. Kim

    I would love to try Dagoba chocodrops!

  250. Kyle

    Sounds good! I look forward to your new recipes

  251. Annie

    Would love all that chocolate! Thanks for the opportunity!

  252. Kim Keller

    love the salt on these. I also added some unsweetened coconut flakes, because everything goes better with coconut.
    Thanks for posting.

  253. Carrie

    I just love that you dont have added sugar in this! I have a teen at home that cannot have sugar and I’m excited to see if this might offer him a holiday treat that he can actually enjoy……

    Let’s just say I cannot wait to em’bark’ upon this journey! Lol!

    Thank you so much for posting this one!

  254. Lecia R

    Hi Elana,
    I need a chocolate recipe to make for a family party and was thrilled to see your Christmas chocolate bark. Thanks for a chance to win the chocodrops.

  255. Mary

    I would love to win some Chocodrops . . . I am a huge fan of Dagoba products, they are phenomenal!

  256. Margaret Nolan

    Love anything with good dark chocolate in it but am unable to find these choc drops in Aus so winning this would be fantastic.

  257. Ramona

    Sounds wonderful. I love dark chocoalte!

  258. Rose

    I’m drooling just thinking about the choculate. Elana, love your contests. Have yet to win, but am hoping.

  259. Gina

    I just found your website, and I love all the recipes!! I was diagnosed with diabetes 12 years ago at the age of 31, after having my second child. Finding websites and recipes like these have been a life changing experience. I can eat delicious desserts and meals and never feel like I am missing out, and people always like to try the sugar free recipes I find. The holidays are much more enjoyable and easier to get through too!! Thank you for sharing your recipes, the Christmas pudding looks decadent and I am making the chocolate bark for Christmas gifts.

  260. Dana

    Thank you for all the amazing recipes. You make gf totally livable. I discovered my dietary limitations a year ago. Instead of being a negative, I just turned 40 and in better shape than I was in my 20’s.

  261. Freedom

    Love the idea of the course salt! I’m a salt lover as well, I put it on EVERYTHING even sliced apples! Is the 73% cacao pretty sweet with the salt added?

  262. Lana

    I LOVE CHOCOLATE & would love to win the chips!!!

  263. Suzanne

    This is a great recipe for my chocolate-loving boy–something for his stocking, maybe? Yes.

  264. Viktoria

    Thanks for the chance and the idea of sprinkling salt over dark chocolate with pistachios. Having given several kinds of truffles and other hand made gifts of very dark chocolate over the years, this is an idea I have yet to try and will definitely incorporate it next time! Also am curious to try Dagoba Chocolate :)

  265. Christine

    Hi Elana!

    I was just diagnosed with a dairy allergy at 39 and am so grateful for your site. Giving up dairy and gluten has changed my life by changing my health. I am in awesome shape and no longer have mental fog–it is amazing! I am so thankful to feel so much better but, I will always miss cheese. =)

    Thank you so much for your wonderful recipes and good cheer and your beautiful pictures–so inspiring! It’s so nice to be able to make yummy treats that my body can enjoy.

    Best regards,


    P.S. Please enter me in your drawing for 10 pounds of Dagoba chocolate–that would be fantastic! And I can share with my dairy and gluten-free family.

  266. Carrie Krueger

    I would love to win!!

  267. Janice

    Ten pounds of dark chocolate sounds amazing! So does the chocolate bark!

  268. bridget

    yummmm Dark chocolate… I love dark chocolate… and holiday bark mmm looks soo good… I love how many vegan recipes you have!

  269. Diane Hyde


    I want to thank you so much! I was adopted when I was four months old,with no family history (I’m 50 now) I just always thought that my “tummy troubles” were (as my doctor told me), “my nerves”. I finally had tests done eight weeks ago and was diagnosed with allergies to wheat, peanut butter, oats and potatoes. Finding your site was heaven!

    Thank you so very much!

    Happy Holidays!


    P.S. the chocolate looks divine

  270. lynn

    You know I’m going to be making this! Whoo-hoo!

  271. Nana

    Chocolate is my favorite. This looks wonderful!

  272. Lisa Hite

    I’ve been trying out a lot of your recipes with great success. I plan on making this one today. Thanks for sharing.

  273. Bobbi

    I have loved your recipes since we first were drawn to them because of my daughter’s dairy allergy and for the health benefits of eating gluten free. We even bought your Almond Flour cookbook. Now though, my son has an almond allergy! We are so bummed to not be able to make a lot of your yummy recipes.
    I will continue to try recipes like this though. Thank you!

  274. Joyce

    Great recipe. I would love to win the Chocodrops!

  275. Pat

    This recipes will definitely be on the menu for Christmas. This will make a nice gift for someone, too. I can envision it wrapped with a cute red bow.

  276. Nancy

    Yum! I love dark chocolate bark recipes. I was planning to make a peppermint version and was looking for another version with exactly these ingredients (I love salt too). Score! Thanks Elana!

  277. Nell Clymer

    my husband made me some chocolate bark last year for Valentine Day in the shape of a heart! Love your book, make the banana blueberry muffins all the time. Thanks, Nell Clymer.

    Yum! I work at a chocolate factory and am surrounded everyday with yummy treats but this one looks better than all of those!!

  284. Joan Seliger Sidney

    Yum, what a treat! And all that chocolate to share….

    PS your cranberry-apple crisp was a real hit!

  285. Denise

    This recipe is so wonderful! I always think of Christmas Bark as having pieces of broken candy canes in it and this is a way to give it the colors without all the extra sugar of the candy canes! Can’t wait to make some NOW!

  286. Fariba Kerendi

    Can’t wait to make the chocolate bark! I enjoyed checking out the other chocolate bark recipes also. I’ve never heard of those other blogs so I am looking forward to exploring them. As always, thanks for all the inspiration!!

  295. Nancy Slater

    This looks fabulous. I will definately make this for a Christmas treat for the family.

  296. Pamela L.

    That looks great. A friend of my sister’s has just gone gluten-free, so this will be something fun to make for her.

  297. starlite_cherub

    I’ve never attempted to make chocolate bark before….but due to my lack of really wanting to spend a whole weekend in the kitchen doing Christmas treats for friends, this looks like a great alternative!

  298. Lenee

    I can’t wait to try this Christmas Chocolate bar. The tartness of the cranberries will compliment the chocolate, wow heaven!!!

  299. Emily N.

    I love dark chocolate. Yum!

  300. Tiffany @ Conor & Bella @ conorbella.wordpress.com

    Pistachios and cranberrys in chocolate bark sounds good! Thanks for the recipe.

  301. Claudia

    Really? Chocolate… and salt? Oh, I’ll try this recipe for sure. Thanks, Elana!

  302. Sue Averay

    I live in Australia and the ‘bark’ idea is new to me. What a great christmas treat this will make for my gluten-free family members and friends! I’ll enjoy watching their faces when I pop little boxes of these in front of them. Thanks.

  303. P Roland

    Oh my goodness. How wonderful would that be. This recipe looks wonderful. Thank you. I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your wonderful cookbook. We are looking forward to the cupcake book as well. So far, the coconut flour chocolate cake and cupcakes have saved the day (and the gluten-eating friends of my children really didn’t know the difference!).


  304. Beverly Pirtle

    The coarse sea salt has piqued my curiosity. I think I will make just to try this out, as I am also a salt craver.

  305. Jon

    What a great combination! Can’t wait to try it!


  306. Chocodrops!!! I love these and can’t believe that they’re nowhere to be found in stores.

  307. Norma Heckendorf

    Since discovering your website, I seem to be trying, on the average, one recipe each day. It is great fun to be sampling new dishes! Thank you!

  308. barbara

    Elana, How wonderful it would be to make healthy chocolate bark
    after years of making the ‘other’ bark!!.Barbara

  309. I will be making this recipe this weekend to bring for treats on Monday at work/school. Thanks!

  310. Stephanie Worth

    I Love Dagoba Chocolate! It is delish! This Bark looks perfect for Christmas gifting. Thanks again Elana.

  311. Emily

    Can’t wait to try the chocolate bark. It looks like a perfect holiday gift.

  312. Jennifer Belanger

    I just made this recipe with my girlfriends for our Christmas gift baking and it is PHENOMINAL! Thanks so much for such a great recipe and even greater website!

  313. This looks incredible! I just started my own cooking blog and added you to my blogroll Elana. Thank you for your amazing recipes!

  314. allison

    wow! Ive been longingly looking at chocolate bark around town, what a delight to find a tasty recipe! Choco-love

  315. Janice

    Looks delicious, festive and easy..What more could you want? I work with Better Recipes and am always looking for new dishes. This one looks great. Right now I am focusing on Christmas desserts. Check these out Christmas Dessert Recipes

  316. Yikes. I have never seen anything like this! You are an artist. A culinary artist. A presentation artist. A photographic artist. Thank you for this recipe. I have forwarded it to all family and special friends.

    I am especially excited to discover recipes like this because “dark chocolate” is so good for you. I hav read that it may help lower blood pressure, increase blood flow and ultimately contribute to a healthy heart, due to its antioxidant potential. Only thing is that health experts say to limit it to 100 calories of dark chocolate a day.

    However, Christmas is a special time and allowances may be in order.

    Thank you Elana!


  317. Eileen

    Hmmm…I’ve never thought of pistachio and cranberry combination before. I’ll be trying this out soon

  318. Judy H.

    This recipe features only favorite ingredients!! And it looks fabulous with the natural red and green in the chocolate bark! Can’t wait to try the recipe and you may have solved a few last minute or hostess gift dilemmas…!

  319. Nirinjan

    This looks amazing!! Would make a great gift too!

  320. Heather Reseck @ vegetarianadvantage.com

    Looks like a yummy new holiday treat!

  321. KarenLana

    This combination sounds intriguing and a must try! Thanks so much for the delicious recipes and generous giveaway!

  322. Rhea

    Can’t wait to add this to my holiday baking!

  323. Gail

    Who wouldn’t be salivating after looking at this picture?

    I made your tart cranberry squares yesterday with their color being perfect for the season and their taste was equally to perfection. They would pair quite nicely with this christmas chocolate bark–and with 10 lbs of Dagoba Organic Chocolate, there would be enough chocolate to share with my whole family and some friends too. How great is that?

    Thanks for this chocolate giveaway!

  324. Emily


    I’ve never tried to make chocolate bark, but I love to munch on it. I have been trying to find something g-free to make and give to my neighbors for Christmas, and this is it! Thanks so much!

  325. Gail

    I was just reading some of the posts and someone mentioned about spliting the 10 lbs into two separate prize packages. I think that would be a wonderful idea so that there would be two winners of this great Company’s chocolate.

    Elana, what do you think?

  326. Norma Aston

    This looks like a delicious Christmas treat! Thanks for yet another wonderful recipe. Keep them coming! They are very helpful and fun to make!

  327. Irene

    Definitely going to include this with the dessert on Christmas Eve. Yummy!

  328. Shirley Marcroft

    Thanks for this great recipe.
    I eat chocolate bark all year long — but my recipe isn’t as good as yours. Tomorrow, I’ll be making your recipe to give folks as Christmas gifts.

  329. nora stone

    Thanks, Elana ~ this is the perfect, festive confection to give to all my chocolate loving friends! I’m sure I’ll eat a little, too ;-)

  330. Paige

    Funny how my sis in law was just asking me today if we could get together to make chocolate bark and here you’ve added inspiration to our plans! Thanks!

  331. Dorothea

    Chocolate Bark…one of the many reasons why I love the holidays!

  332. Sarah

    oooh. . .this looks fabulous and decadent. I know two boys who will be exceedingly happy to help make and devour this. . Thanks Elana, you are a consistently our go-to resource meals/treats around here!

  333. Kylie Coghlan

    10 pounds of chocolate! I’m not sure how many kg’s that is (I’m Australian) but it sounds like a lot!!!! My thighs would not be thanking me for this!

  334. D.D20roses

    Great recipes Elana!

  335. Linda

    Sounds like chocoholic heaven to me. I love dark choc and almonds, but this sound equally as yummy!

  336. If I didn’t need to make 18 gingerbread houses today, I would totally be making this! Yummy :)

  337. Shannon

    Love your website. Love Dagoba products. I can’t wait to make the Christmas bark.

  338. jodirose

    For as much as I miss being able to eat wheat, I am THANKFUL that I can still eat chocolate! And as far as I am concerned, the only chocolate worth eating is good, dark chocolate. This recipe looks wonderful.

  339. Anna

    These are going on my list! I was stumped for more reasonable holiday edible gifts this year, been doing lots of research since plain ole sugar cookies aren’t gonna cut it any more!

  340. nina

    I was looking for a recipe for a gift I needed this week and this recipe looks perfect!

  341. i found out about dagoba choco drops from you- YUMMMMY!
    thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

    Ok, that is a giveaway, wow!!!! CHocolate heaven.

    I’m leaving a comment here because I’m interested in trying those chips, but aren’t they made with cane sugar? Don’t you try to avoid cane sugar? I usually get the Endangered Species chimp bar (72%) and crush it up. It’s beet sugar, which probably isn’t much better…

  345. Missy Piche

    I have recently been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease and I am so glad for all the wonderful recipes you have. With the holidays I have been so concerned that I would not get to bake yummy treats with my 2 small children which is a favorite Christmas tradition. Thank you for helping others learn how to go gluten free!

  346. Angela Eck

    I think I will try this chocolate bark recipe; it looks fabulous! :-) Thanks for all of the drawings you do on your blog. I’d love to win 10 pounds of organic Dagoba chocolate, and am glad for the chance to enter.

  347. Ruthie Selch

    I LOVE the combination of fruit and chocolate. Add a few nuts and you have HEAVEN!!

  348. Shelly

    Alright, ten pounds of chocolate would be the death of me, but I’m going to comment anyway in an attempt to win. ;)

    I just found your blog! I love many of the recipes! I can’t wait to try that fruit pudding. This is going to be a very good Christmas.

  349. Shifra Hochberg

    Sounds yummy! My daughter was recently diagnosed with celiac and we love using your Almond Flour cookbook to make her delicious gluten free desserts, quiches, etc. Looking forward to buying your Coconut Flour cupcake cookbook! Keep those recipes coming!

  350. Heather (The Menu Mama) @ themenumama.blogspot.com

    Oh boy, I will be having dreams about all that dark chocolate. This looks like a fantastic and unusual bark recipe, I think I will give it a try!

  351. Jay

    Made this treat for my friend who’s disabled with MS. Some of her favorite goodies are dark chocolate, pistachio’s & cashews amongst others. I used a combination of pistachio’s & cashews, as well as the cranberries. She loved it!

  352. Dina Contenti

    This looks amazing! Can’t wait to give this a try! THANKS ELANA

  353. Kristen M. @ kristenmclane.com

  354. suzanne burnie

  355. Mmmmmm chocolate. Ten! Pounds! of chocolate….

  356. FrancyDe

    I have added this chocolate bark to my list of things to make this Christmas – it looks so good – Thanks for sharing it!

  357. Ruth

    I LOVE Dagoba chocolate — it’s so great to be able to indulge in such a rich treat knowing that it is organic, too. I’d make this recipe plus a batch of roasted almond chocolate bark if I won this prize. Thanks for the opportunity~

  358. Jenn Strilchuk

    Hi Elana. I just discovered your blog….it is awesome! Thank you so much for creating it. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win that chocolate!

  359. Katie

    swapped the cranberries for sour dried cherries..sooo good!

  360. Erin

    looks so yummy and festive, gonna try this ASAP!

  361. jamie

    I would love some Dagoba!!

  362. Kathleen

    Something EVERYONE will love! And no one else makes this in my neighborhood. Great recipe, Elana! Thank you.


    Sorry, but as a shameless chocoholic, I couldn’t resist :)


  364. It’s raining chocolate drops :)

  365. Brandae

    This looks easy and delicious! Thanks for the recipe – would love to win the giveaway too! Have a great rest of your weekend!

  366. Madeline Ray

    Thank you for the yummy Pumpkin Pie Muffins. They were a hit at a Christmas
    party I went to. I love your site and am new to it so I’m spending hrs./day reading
    recipes and going to different links you recommend.

  367. Jeri Cole

    I love the green and red with the chocolate. I’ve made this in a white chocolate version before. Very pretty.

  368. Cheryl

    Hi Elana!

    I’ve been loving your site ever since I stumbled across it back in September when I started going pumpkin crazy and making lots of pumpkin treats, including your roasted pumpkin and pumpkin custard. I’m definitely not vegan but the custard was great and I loved learning about and using agar flakes.

    I’m using plenty of your recipes to try out candy making this week once my molds arrive. Can’t wait to try!

    This bark looks really tasty. I’m thinking of replacing the cranberries with dried cherries and then maybe mixing some chocolate up with rum to drizzle over the top– then this will be spumoni bark =) The pistachios inspired me!

    I’d love to win the chocolate too! Would come in handy with the candy making… I can’t say my luck in random drawings is very good, but I’ll believe in the impossible.

    “Why sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
    -Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass
    (My new favorite quote.)

    Thanks for a great site and for sharing your experiences with gluten free cooking/baking.

  369. Jessica

    Delicious! I used raisins instead of cranberries cause thats all I had. Thanks Elana!

  370. Elizabeth Ring

    Thanks for the incredibly easy sounding recipe for something so totally delicious as your chocolate bark.

  371. Me and my two year old could do a lot with 10 pounds of Dagoba organic dark chocolate! We could try all the recipes for chocolate bark!

  372. ScottMGS

    Yum! I’ve got to try that chocolate-and-salt combination.

  373. Jeanne Marie

    I love the addition of coarse sea salt to this bark! It looks super yummy and I hope to make it soon!
    Thanks Elana!!

  374. Tricia Ullrich

    Can’t wait to try this one, thanks for such wonderful recipes Elana!

  375. Adam & Wendy

    Salty & Sweet – Must try! Thanks Elana – Hope we win.

  376. Megan Boyeas

    This looks delicious! I can’t wait to make some!

  377. Chris & Kate @ JustLikeNone.com

    This recipe looks spectacular, and your timing is perfect–this seems to be our year for trying chocolate bark recipes. So far, we’ve been playing with peppermint barks, but cranberries and pistachios sounds really, really good…especially with dark chocolate.

  378. Your recipes are wonderful. I have made several from the cookbook and a couple from the online recipe box. Everyone, including non-GF folks, ask for the chocolate cookie recipe and prefer these cookies to standard tollhouse fare.

    The recipes are simple, require a reasonable amount of ingredients and easy to follow. Since we keep bees, I have substituted honey for agave nectar, using slightly less honey. Also have used walnut oil or other nut oils which has also worked out fine.

    Now portion control is another problem………..

    Many thanks,
    Mary Lynn

  379. Susan Smith

    This recipe sounds delicious! I’d love to try it!

  380. chani

    Great site, so creative!!!

  381. Sheryl

    This sounds like one way I could finally get some dried fruit into my son! Looks delicious!!

  382. T K


    I would love to make this Christmas Bark recipe, however, according to the link above, the chocolate in this recipe contains soy lecithin. We are unable to eat soy lecithin. Do you have any other chocolate chip alternatives?

  383. Melisa

    OMG… chocolate!!! Pick me, Pick me!!!

  384. Stacy

    This looks awesome! Thanks for the chance to win the chocolate, too!

  385. This looks amazing! I love the combo of pistachios and dark chocolate. Thanks for the great DIY gift ideas!

  386. Katie

    Ooh this looks great! We just ruled out chocolate and almonds (!) as things to which my son is allergic this week. I told my husband I would have to go through and reread your entire blog, so it was really fun to open this up and find this recipe. particularly since we were just talking about making some kind of salted chocolate confection as well!

  387. Tracy

    I cannot WAIT to try this recipe! So easy, and I can already tell it’s going to be a winner. Thanks for the incredibly scrumptious work you do, Elana. You have helped my family tremendously.

  388. You cannot imagine what a gift all these chips would be for us! Thanks for the opportunity!

  389. Laura

    My goodness that’s a lot of chips and I can think of a lot of recipes to make and/or try….it would be a wonderful surprise to win!

  390. Heather

    This chocolate bark recipe looks great! I love giving homemade christmas gifts; they are fun to make and people always seem to love getting them. I would love to try this recipe; I will just need to see where I can find the chocolate. Thank you for the great recipes; for somebody who cannot eat gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, corn or processed sugar, this site is essential!

  391. Elizabeth

    BARK is my all-time favorite thing to make and give as gifts.

  392. Cameo

    This recipe and picture looks amazing! The chance to win a little chocolate is a sweet bonus too!

  393. Tami

    Thank you for the opportunity to win chocolate! What could possibly be a better gift than chocolate?!
    Thank you also for helping me by sharing your wonderful recipes, insights and wisdom. Have a wonderful New Year, Elana!

  403. Valerie Trapp

Added a bag of dried cranberries [ 5 oz]. sprinkled a bit of sea salt on top, and popped in the freeaer to set up! A bit chuncky, but yummy! now to bag it up for gifts, before I scarf it down!

  404. Rebecca

  405. Shaina

    Ooh, add me to your giveaway list for sure! I will be doing some baking for others for the holidays and that sure would come in handy! :) I love your recipes by the way :)

  406. Donna Strong

    I was looking for a gluten-free coconut macaroon recipe and found your site for the first time. Your recipes look great because they have simple ingredients that most of us g-f eaters have on hand. I would love to have 10lbs of dark chocolate “on hand” too!

  407. Denise

    Christina at Fit on the Fly

  429. Jennifer Lighty

    I found your website because my sister in law made the most delicious cranberry sauce I had ever tasted for Thanksgiving. When I asked her for the recipe, she said it was yours. Thank you!

  430. Kristen

    This recipe looks so delicious & easy. I still have time to start making some homemade Christmas gifts!

  431. Misty Story

    A week ago my ND found that I have Celiac Disease, dairy intolerant and hypoglycemic. If I hadn’t gone to him at my husband’s request, I may have ended up with a pacemaker (this was my cardiologist’s answer for the drop in heart rate and blood pressure I was experiencing).
    My ND found the path back to the source of the complicated list of reactions from the Celiac’s and just after a week on a strict gluten-free, dairy-free, no sugar, no nuts, no grains, etc. diet, I am feeling like I woke up from a very long and disturbing dream. I feel alive! I look forward to how I might feel once I’m fully healed and have a goal of trail running by next summer. :)
    At the end of December I might be able to go to the less restrictive GF, DF & low sugar diet and I’m so excited to try one of these recipes!! :) Dr. Dorninger recommends Elana’s so highly! He swears by it for his recipes for his family.

    I just wanted to write and say, “Thank you for writing your books and having this website to help us all!”
    (The Almond Flour Cookbook is the only thing I have asked for this year and I never ask for anything!) :)

    Thank you and blessings to you all!

She said YUMMNN and that she is definitely making them. I am making them too! Finally an easy dessert I can share with everyone.
    Thanks so much!
