This year, I decided to try a new kind of "bark". Most often, bark is filled with nuts... which is why I haven't often had it. But, this bark is NUT-FREE (provided the chocolates and cherries are not processed on equipment with nuts - always check those labels).
And, this bark is delicious.
This recipe is highly flexible ... you can use any amount of chocolate and cherries you wish! Thus, you can make a little, or a lot ;-)
Dark Chocolate Cherry Bark - Finding Joy in My Kitchen
1 C dark chocolate chips
1/2 C dried cherries, chopped
Melt chocolate chips in the microwave.
While the chocolate is melting, chop up the cherries.
Pour the cherries into the melted chocolate.
And, then spread the chocolate onto a sheet of parchment paper. Spread it fairly thin... but not paper thin.
Allow the dark chocolate cherry bark to harden on the counter, or stick in the fridge to quicken the hardening.
When hardened, break into pieces.
Store in an airtight container in a cool place.
This recipe is also a wonderful and easy treat for your valentine!
