Dark Chocolate Bark with Raw Nuts & Dried Fruit

There are so many treats around the holidays. We love our treats and do like to splurge, but we also try to make some options that are a little better for you. Here is one of our dark chocolate bark recipes we enjoy and takes less than 15 minutes to make!

Ingredients:

  • 16oz of raw organic cashews
  • 16oz of raw organic almonds
  • 8oz of organic raisins or dried cherries or both
  • 20oz of cut up organic dark chocolate bars (60% or higher) or chocolate chips
  • parchment paper (we used unbleached)
  • a large baking sheet with a rim – ours is 13×18 (not flat or the chocolate will melt off and make a mess in the oven) or two 13 x 9 brownie/cake pans to split the ingredients between

Directions:

  1. Line the sheet with the parchment paper. Make sure you line the rim as the candy will melt.
  2. Spread the nuts and the raisins on the pan.
  3. Sprinkle the cut up chocolate over the nuts and dried fruit.
  4. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  5. Make sure the ingredients are not taller than the rim of your baking sheet or pans. Place in oven.
  6. As soon as the chocolate is melted, take out. It takes about 3-5 minutes.
  7. Use the back of a large spoon to smooth the chocolate over the nuts. You can mix them and smooth them into a sheet of chocolate.
  8. Place the pan in the freezer or refrigerator to harden.
  9. When it is hard, break into pieces. The parchment paper should make it easy to lift out and break.
  10. Store in containers. We store ours in the fridge. Then you will have plenty to last you weeks or gift to others!

Simple and Sweet. Enjoy!
