Chocolate Christmas Bark

This makes a great hostess gift! Add your own twist. Sprinkle chocolate with peppermint candy or any other type of dried fruit or nut to make the recipe your own.

INGREDIENTS

(Serves 12)

  • 4 tsps. unsalted butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ cup pistachios or walnuts
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 1 cup candied ginger, chopped
  • 1 lb white chocolate
  • 1lb dark chocolate
  • 1lb milk chocolate

DIRECTIONS

  • Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Stir in the brown sugar & stir constantly until dissolved. Add the nuts & stir until coated.
  • Place nuts on a lined baking sheet & bake for 7 minutes at 400°F. Remove from oven to let cool.
  • Melt each type of chocolate in separate bowls over simmering water.
  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Pour dark chocolate over baking sheet & spread evenly. Next pour the white chocolate over dark chocolate & spread evenly. Lastly, do the same with the milk chocolate layer.
  • Sprinkle the nuts & dried fruit over the chocolate & press into chocolate.
  • Refrigerate until set. Break up into pieces & serve.
