Whip up a pretty and festive Toasted Almond & Cranberry Bark drizzled with dark chocolate in minutes perfect for holiday gift giving or cookie trays
Some Christmas treats are too easy to seem real, this recipe for Toasted Almond and Cranberry Bark is one of them. With the help of a brick (literally a brick, I asked my husband to buy me some on his way home and he originally laughed at me for describing it like that but then apologized when he saw it) of vanilla almond bark and a few basic ingredients you can whip up a gourmet looking holiday treat to fill cookie trays and holiday gift tins.

Ingredients
  • 1 package Vanilla Almond Bark
  • ½ C Almonds
  • ½ C dried Cranberries
  • 2 squares Ghiradelli 60% Cacao baking chocolate
Instructions
  1. Toast almonds in the oven or (very carefully) in a hot cast iron pan and set aside
  2. Spread out a long piece of parchment paper on your kitchen counter
  3. Break up the package of Almond Bark and heat in the microwave following the directions on the package. It will still look lumpy when it's fully melted so give it a good stir before you put it back in the microwave
  4. Pour the melted candy on the parchment paper and smooth out with a spatula
  5. Immediately sprinkle on the almonds and cranberries. The cranberries have a tendency to stick in clumps so try to keep them apart
  6. Gently press on the goodies to make sure they are stuck into the candy
  7. Heat the squares of chocolate in a small cup at 15 second intervals until easily stirable
  8. Use a fork to make chocolate lines across the candy, I like to do diagonal lines one way across the whole piece and then go back across the other diagonal
  9. Let the whole thing sit undisturbed until the candy and chocolate are set
  10. With clean hands peel the candy off the paper and break into chunks
