Christmas Chocolate Bark

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.

  1. Being lazy, I spread the chocolate chips on a parchment lined baking sheet then put in a warm (170°f) oven. I turn the oven off after 5 min or so and let the chips get squishy. Then I remove from oven, spread with an offset spatch and sprinkle with toppings. I put the whole thing in the fridge to set for a bit. So easy to make & clean up!
