In Company with Martha Stewart and Bon Appetit: Dark Chocolate-Pistachio and Cherry Bark

IMG_0926

One of the best parts being a food blogger is when some of my favorite media writes about me, and it’s just out of the blue. Yesterday, a very famous food blog, “The Kitchn” listed their favorite top 10 Brittle and Bark recipes. I made it on the list in great company with Martha Stewart, Bon Appetit, Epicurious and many others.

This recipe ran last year during my first month of my blog. It’s 3 ingredients and fabulous. I will be making it on television next month in Birmingham NBC 13 “Daytime Alabama” and NewsChannel 4 CBS “Talk of the Town” in Nashville, Tennessee.

Chocolate-Pistachio and Cherry Bark

Cook Time:

1 minute

Prep Times:

11/2 pound

1 cup dried cherries or cranberries (or half-and-half)

Preparation:

1. Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl, covered with wax paper on HIGH 1 to 2 minutes or until melted, stirring once. Add pistachios and cherries, stirring well. Spread on large baking sheet covered with parchment paper.

2. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Break bark into pieces. Store in a tightly sealed container in refrigerator up to 1 month. Pack in decorative boxes or tins lined with wax tissue paper or colored cellophane for gift giving.

  1. Does this have to stay in the refrigerator all the time or just for storage? My chocolate has a dusty look to it now (made it 10 days ago). Stored it in a screw on top ziploc container. Maybe that type of container is not air tight or did the chocolate get too hot?
