Sharing a super simple, favorite Christmas treat at our house!  Looking forward to making this in the Fox 6 Real MKE studios next week.

Healthy-ish Dark Chocolate Holiday Bark

Ingredients:

  • 9 ounces dark chocolate (70% cacoa or greater)  (like theo, tabal, alter eco)
  • 1 cup mixed nuts (your favorite raw/roasted combinations)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • ¼ cup crushed candy cane (I like Wholesome Organic candy canes)
  • ¼ cup freeze dried crushed raspberries (I get from Trader Joe’s)
  • ¼ cup goji berries
  • sea salt

 

Instructions:

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium pan, over very, very low heat on the stove, melt the chocolate. Continually stir so the chocolate does not burn
  3. Scatter nuts, coconut flakes, crushed candy cane, crush raspberries and goji berries on the baking sheet.  (Save just a bit of each to sprinkle on top of bark once chocolate is laid in the pan.)
  4. Transfer the melted chocolate to the prepared baking sheet and spread into thin layer.
  5. Quickly sprinkle a few pieces of nuts, coconut, candy cane, raspberry and goji berry on top.
  6. Sprinkle a hint of sea salt on top as well.
  7. Allow chocolate to cool and harden completely before breaking into small pieces.

** If the chocolate is more on the bitter side, you can always add a teaspoon or two of honey to sweeten it up. Other fun ingredients you can experiment with include pomegranates, sunflower, chia and flax seeds or dried fruit pieces of any flavor. Get creative and fun with the endless combinations!
