Pistachio Bark Makes a Great Gift

One quick and simple Christmas treat that we like to whip up for friends, teachers, coworkers and more during the holidays is chocolate bark. Bark comes together easily, and it’s a truly special sweet!

Our favorite chocolate bark is laden with roasted pistachios and tart dried cherries. It also contains two types of chocolate, white and dark. (Hey, we don’t like to choose just one!)

To start, line a large cookie sheet with a layer of wax paper. Melt 1 lb. of organic dark chocolate chips in the microwave on high in 30-second increments, until the chips are almost completely melted. Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir the organic dark chocolate chips with a spoon until the chocolate is smooth. Do the same with 1/2 lb. of white chocolate chips or yogurt chips.

Working quickly so that the chocolate is still liquid, mix 3/4 cup each of roasted unsalted pistachios and tart cherries into the melted organic dark chocolate chips. Pour the dark chocolate in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle the melted white chocolate chips or yogurt chips over the top of the dark chocolate, using the tip of a chopstick or knife to make a swirl pattern. Sprinkle an additional 3/4 cup each of roasted unsalted pistachios and tart cherries over the top of the bark. Slide the cookie sheet into the refrigerator and chill the bark until it’s firm (two to three hours).

Use a rubber mallet to break the pistachio bark into chunks. Wrap the pieces in tissue paper or place them in a tin for easy gifting. This sweet is as delicious as it is simple, and we know your loved ones will adore it!
