Ellen’s Chocolate Holiday Bark

cranberriesMy friend Ellen Cavagnaro shared this recipe with me last year. It is incredibly easy to make, tastes sensational, and everyone loves it!

Packaged in a cute holiday tin or cellophane bags, this delightful treat is perfect for the mail carrier, local fire and police departments, or for the office. Pinterest has some great wrapping ideas for gifts from the kitchen for more presentation ideas.

Don’t give it all away! It’s so good, you’ll want to save some for yourself to enjoy too!

Ellen’s Chocolate Holiday Bark

1 bar Trader Joes 17 oz. “Pound Plus” 72% dark chocolate, chopped into chunks

1/4 t. cinnamon

1 cup salted green pistachios, shelled and roughly chopped

1 cup roasted salted almonds, roughly chopped

1 cup dried cranberries

Line a large flat platter or small cookie sheet with foil; chill in the refrigerator until ready to use (at least 20 minutes). Mix nuts and cranberries in a bowl and set aside.

Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl over simmering water or in a double boiler. When chocolate has melted, sprinkle with cinnamon and stir. Add 2/3 cup of the nut/cranberry mix and mix well.

Spread the chocolate mixture over the chilled foil in a thin to medium layer. Sprinkle the remaining nut/cranberry mixture evenly over the chocolate; pressing them lightly into the warmed chocolate.

Chill until chocolate is well set, about 45 minutes. Once hardened; break the candy into pieces and store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
