12 Dec. 2020: Cranberry Nut Chocolate Bark

And just like that, it’s time to start Holiday Baking again. This year, I’ve made fewer cookies, and included some other confections in my repertoire. King Arthur Baking share a couple of recipes over the last week that I am working on for family and friend homemade gifts. The contrast of cranberries, roasted pecans, and sweet chocolate, easy and quick way it comes together and a decent yield (2 dozen pieces) makes it a keeper! Visit the KAB recipe post for the nutritional information – and why spoil such a good treat, but there you have it.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cup toasted, diced pecans
  • 2 2/3 cup chopped semi-sweet or bitter sweet chocolate, melted
  • 2 2/3 cup chopped white chocolate, melted.

Method

  1. Toss the cranberries and pecans together. Set aside.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate and spread it into and 8″ x 12″ oval on parchment paper.
  3. Allow the chocolate to set, but not harden completely.
  4. Melt the white chocolate and mix it with about 3/4 cup of the cranberries and pecans.
  5. Spread the cranberry/nut/white chocolate over the dark chocolate.
  6. Sprinkle the rest of the nuts and fruit on top, pressing them in gently.
  7. Allow the candy to cool until hardened, then break it into chunks.
