Loaded Chocolate Bark

Loaded Chocolate Bark

Prep Time: 15 minutesĀ  Cook Time: 10 minutesĀ  Serves: 8

Ingredients

1 pound white or dark chocolate (melting chocolate wafers are easiest to work with)
White Chocolate
Zest of 1 orange
2 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup chopped pistachios
1/3 cup dried cranberries
3 tablespoons sunflower seeds
Dark Chocolate
1/4 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup chopped almonds
1/4 cup roasted pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds)
1/4 cup dried cherries

Directions

1. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. If using orange zest: toss orange zest and sugar and lay out on paper towels for at least 1 hour before preparing.

2. Place a tempered-glass or metal bowl over a pot of simmering water to create a double-boiler.

3. Place the chocolate in the hot bowl and use a rubber spatula to keep moving as the chocolate melts. Remove the bowl from the double-boiler right before the last of the chocolate has melted.

4. Pour the melted chocolate onto the parchment paper and spread until less than 1/4-inch thick.

5. Top the chocolate with your choice of toppings while still warm. For the best results, use a clean spatula to lightly press the toppings down into the bark.

6. Let cool at least 6 hours before breaking into pieces to serve.
