Time for more holiday candy making! This quick chocolate bark shines with holiday color, in the form of cranberries and apricots. Be sure to get the softest dried fruit you can get for it.
- 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate (1 bar), roughly chopped
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped
- 1/2 cup hazelnuts, chopped
Line a cookie tray with parchment paper, cut to size. Divide the dried fruit and nuts in half, in two small bowls. In a large microwave safe glass mixing bowl melt the chocolate on high for 1 minutes, stir gently and melt for 1 minute more. Stir until fully melted, add in one bowl of the dried fruit and nut mixture, mixing in well. Immediately knock out on the paper and quickly spread with a silicone spatula out evenly. Top with the remaining fruit and nuts randomly, gently press down. Let cool till hard (at least a couple of hours, overnight is better. Break into pieces.
