dark chocolate bark with nuts, cranberries and sea salt

Image

dark chocolate has been in the news lately as one of the preferred types of chocolate to eat.  this bark is great for a party, and will become one of your favorite snacks.  it is super easy to make and quite tasty.  i do store this bark in a plastic container in the refrigerator, just to make certain that the air temperature does not make it soft or cause it to melt.

i used Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips for the base, and a mix of chopped nuts, dried cranberries, and sea salt.

the chocolate is melted in a double boiler on the stove top, and spread over parchment or waxed paper that has been treated with spray oil on a sheet pan.  i used a stainless spatula to spread the melted chocolate.

next, the chopped nuts are added with the dried cranberries to the top.  at the end, i topped with some sea salt.  the sheet pan is placed in the refrigerator to chill. after 1 to 2 hours, the bark can be broken and then stored in a plastic container separated in layers with waxed paper in the refrigerator.

this chocolate bark is delicious served with ice cream as a garnish, atop a cake for decoration, or as an addition to any cookie plate.
