Chocolate Cranberry Pistachio Bark

10 Mar

DSC_0233As always this was the weekend, kind of a sad day today as it was damp dismal and dreary a stark contrast to yesterday’s bright sunny warm weather.  Two more months hopefully till warmer weather and sunnier skies.  After scooting around town for next week, I decided to take time to make snacks for munching on next week.  I saw some cranberries, pistachios and white chocolate sitting around so I decided to make some classic white chocolate bark.  To me, white chocolate was always delicious but it was even more so when studded with little green and red jewels, pistachios and cranberries that was.  When eaten, you get combination of a nutty floral and tangy sweet taste, from the pistachios and cranberries, along side the natural sweetness of white chocolate.  Mind you, there was also milk chocolate or dark chocolate bark.  There are probably many combinations, but I so happened to have pistachios, cranberries and white chocolate.

I first toasted some pistachios and cranberries while the white chocolate was melting over a bowl.  Next I arranged the pistachios and cranberries over a pan and once the chocolate was the right temperature, I poured it onto the cranberries and pistachios.  The chocolate mixture was then placed in the fridge to cool, set and once set, the bark was broken into separate pieces.
