Do you ever wish that there was a simple, yet festive, crowd-pleasing dessert that you could prepare with minimal time and effort? Guess what? There is! Chocolate bark.
Chocolate bark looks so beautiful and artsy that it's easy to assume that it must take a lot of time and effort to prepare. And yet, it's actually one of the easiest and fuss-free dessert recipes going. Keep a few shelf-stable ingredients on hand and a delicious dessert can be yours in a few easy steps.
270 grams (approx. 10 oz) of dark chocolate, broken into pieces*
3/4 cup of pumpkin seeds, raw
1/2 cup dried cranberries (organic preferred)**
2 Tbsp maple flakes
Pinch of Himalayan salt, finely ground
*I used two 135 gram bars of ChocoSol 75% Darkness, which is sweetened with unrefined cane sugar.
**I look for brands sweetened with organic apple juice, such as Made In Nature, Eden, or Prana.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
