2 cups dark or semi-sweet chocolate ⅛ cup dried cranberries ⅛ cup dried cherries ⅛ cup dried chopped apricots ⅛ cup coconut flakes ⅛ cup sliced almonds ⅛ cup sea salted cashews ⅛ cup roasted and salted pumpkin seeds
Temper or melt chocolate. Pour out onto parchment paper. Spread into 12"x 9" rectangle. Sprinkle top with fruits and nuts. Allow to set. Cut or break into pieces.
Any combinations of fruits or nut can be used! Just make sure you like the flavors of all of them together.
Semi sweet chocolate can be used in place of the dark chocolate. If using something like milk chocolate, the tempering temperatures will not be accurate.
You can use raw or roasted nuts. As well as salted or unsalted.
Be sure to use a good quality chocolate for this recipe.
If you’re tempering the chocolate, remember to have all the fruits and nuts measured before you start tempering.
When spreading the dark chocolate, use a rubber spatula or an offset spatula to get it perfectly level.
Be sure to sprinkle the fruits and nuts on quickly! If the chocolate is starting to set, the toppings will not stick.
Setting times will depend on temperature in your kitchen! The colder it is, the faster it sets. The warmer it is, the slower it sets. Keep this in mind!
Do NOT refrigerate this chocolate bark!
