Almond and Cherry Chocolate Bark Recipe

Almond and Cherry Chocolate Bark Recipe

A simple yet delicious recipe that makes a great dessert any night of the week. Make a batch and enjoy for days!

Makes 24 servings


½ lb bittersweet chocolate
½ lb semisweet chocolate
¼ cup chopped unsweetened dried cherries
⅔ cup roasted salted almonds, coarsely chopped
Zest of 1 naval orange
⅛ tsp coarse sea salt

Directions


Line the baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.

Using a vegetable peeler, remove zest from half the orange. Using a paring knife, cut zest into very thin strips (about an inch long) and set aside.

Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Stir until chocolate has melted and is completely smooth.

Remove the chocolate from the heat and mix in ⅔ of the chopped almonds, dried cherries and orange zest.

Immediately pour onto prepared baking sheet using a flexible rubber spatula and spread into an 8x10 inch rectangle about ¼ inch thick.

Sprinkle remaining nuts, zest and coarse salt.

Refrigerate until firm, roughly 30 minutes. Once the chocolate has cooled completely, break into pieces and store in an airtight container. Keep refrigerated.
