Dark Chocolate & Nut Barks

By Angelika Hanna

Recipe:

Prep Time: 15 min + 30 min refrigerating time

Cuisine: North American

Author: Angelika Hanna / Zest4Food

Ingredients:

  • Dark chocolate to melt (I used dark chocolate wafers)
  • Any sort of nut of your choice (I used hazelnuts and peanuts)
  • Holiday-themed sprinkles

Instructions:

  1. Place the chocolate wafers in a large heat-safe bowl and place the bowl on top of a medium-sized pot half filled with water.
  2. Heat water over medium-high heat.
  3. Let the chocolate melt, stirring frequently.
  4. When the chocolate is melted, turn the heat off and fold the nuts into the chocolate. (You can do this with the bowl still sitting on top of the pot.)
  5. Spoon the chocolate-nut mixture on a baking sheet and spread evenly using a spatula into a rectangle. (You don’t have to line your baking sheet with parchment paper nor grease it. Once the chocolate is hardened, it will come off the baking sheet easily.)
  6. Let cool for a few minutes.
  7. Top liberally with holiday-themed sprinkes.
  8. Refrigerate until firm, approx. 30 min.
  9. Cut the bark into pieces.

The barks will last for several weeks closed airtight in a freezer bag in the freezer.

Happy Holidays!
