Here’s a dessert that you don’t have to feel guilty about eating. It’s dark chocolate bark, and it’s as amazing as it looks, but yet so simple to whip up. You can mix up a batch in literally 5 minutes before chilling it in the fridge. You may even have all the ingredients at home, I did.
Pair this up with a nice glass of red wine and you have the perfect after dinner dessert. Wrap or box some up, and you have the perfect Holiday hostess gift.
- Vegetable or olive oil cooking spray
- 9oz dark chocolate (70 percent cacao), melted
- 1/4 cup pistachios, chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
Lightly coat at 8-inch pan with cooking spray. Line the pan with parchment paper, leaving a small overhang. Chop up your pistachios.
Melt your chocolate over a double boiler.
Pour melted chocolate into your prepared pan and smooth with a spatula into an even layer. Sprinkle with chopped pistachios and coarse sea salt.
Chill in refrigerator until completely set, about 30 minutes. Pull cooled chocolate out of the refrigerator and peel off parchment paper.
Rest on plate or cutting board and cut it up into pieces or just break it apart into random pieces.
There are so many different combinations of toppings you can try. I am going to try almonds and coconut next. I am also thinking of adding some chopped peppermint for the Holidays.
