Cranberry Pistachio Bark Ingredients
- Chocolate chips– Be sure to use high-quality chocolate chips. I like dark chocolate but you can use semi-sweet or milk chocolate if that’s what you prefer.
- Pistachios– Look for shelled pistachios, which will save you a lot of time! I prefer roasted, salted pistachios.
- Dried cranberries– These add a lovely sweet and tart flavor.
- Salt– A pinch of flaky sea salt really brings the flavors to life!
How to Make Cranberry Pistachio Bark
Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl at 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth.
Spread the melted chocolate chips onto a sheet of wax paper or parchment paper.
Sprinkle with chopped pistachios, dried cranberries, and shredded coconut. Finish with a pinch of flaky sea salt.
Place in the fridge for 2-3 hours until firm. Then break the sheet of chocolate into bite-sized pieces.
Tips for Melting Chocolate
- Microwave the chocolate at 50% power and stir every 30 seconds. Chocolate can burn quickly and once it’s burned, it’s ruined. I like to stir the chocolate with a small rubber spatula so I can get the chocolate evenly mixed.
- If you don’t have a microwave, you can use a double boiler method. To do this, fill a pot about 1/4 full with water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and place a heat-safe bowl on top of the pot. The bottom of the bowl should have at least 2-3″ of space between the bowl and the water. This will allow you to heat the bowl with steam and gently cook the chocolate.
