I really like the show Dessert First, I think Anne Thorton is so fun and I think we could be friends. She made a chocolate bark like this a while back, and I was so excited to try it. The nice thing about a recipe like this is that it is so quick and easy and can be changed up to your taste. I will definitely be making this again with other combinations. It’s the perfect kind of snack to have when you are craving salty and sweet. I used milk chocolate and a thin layer of semi sweet chocolate (I also think dark chocolate would taste amazing together) and mixed in dried cherries, cashews and pretzels.
about 1 lb. of milk chocolate
1 bag of semi sweet chocolate (or dark)
about 1 cup pretzels chopped in small pieces
1/2 cup dried cherries, chopped
1/2 cup cashews, chopped
Melt the milk chocolate in a double boiler. While the chocolate is melting, line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper. When the chocolate is nice and shiny and melted, add in the pretzels, dried cherries and cashews and stir until combined. Pour that mixture into the lined pan and spread out with a spatula to make an even layer. I used the same pan to melt the semi sweet chocolate in. Once the semi sweet is melted, pour it in a thin layer on top of the milk chocolate. Let it cool. Once the chocolate has set you can break (or try to cut) the bark into pieces. Enjoy!
